GSE students in the International Business and French Culture Program at Ecole Supérieure du Commerce Extérieur (ESCE Paris) participate in a course of study specifically designed for foreign students, with classes such as “French as a Foreign Language” and “French Civilisation.” In the event that the French-language skills of a foreign student are inadequate for placement in a French-language curriculum, many courses are also offered in English. Students who take French language classes are evaluated at the beginning of the semester with a French aptitude exam. The program comprises an intensive two-week seminar at the beginning of the semester, followed by a weekly class organized by level.
