Content information

Starting level: basic knowledge of French, level A2+ (which is a little bit lower than secondary school level of French)


This course is aimed at veterinarians (in training), veterinary assistants and all those who are active in this sector. You can take this course because you would like to deepen your specialised knowledge of French and sharpen your communication skills in French as well.


First of all, we will brush up basic grammar. You will also learn how to use subject-specific vocabulary (on anatomy, medication, diseases, etc.) in context, how to explain treatments using simple terms, how to give instructions, how to refer, etc. By means of extensive vocabulary lists and exercises as well as interactive speaking exercises, we will try to reflect the professional context as accurately as possible.

Placement test: There is no placement test but there is a final test.
