Projet Voltaire: Spelling and Grammar

Contenu de la page principale

The Projet Voltaire offers individualised remedial work in spelling to all students who wish to improve their French skills.


The professional world requires a certain level of spelling, which could be detrimental to you if not achieved. Written content concerns all professional sectors nowadays and can be found everywhere: emails, professional chats, reports, social networks… Companies are aware of this fact and are more and more cautious about their applicants’ spelling.

The University offers self-paced, online training thanks to a personalised programme.
