Course contents

Title of the course: Formes de médiation

The course will consist of two parts:

Part 1: During the second part of the course (20 hours), students will focus on the concept of representation in view of the encounter of different cultures. Intercultural mediation is particularly developed in contexts where the encounter/conflict between different cultures and languages produces various and original types of mediation. Therefore, the French-speaking context is chosen in order to encourage students to recognize the linguistic and cultural elements characterizing the types of mediation experiences analyzed.

Part 2: Students are expected to attend language classes (20 hours) and aiming at consolidating and improving the skills of comprehension and production of French language. At the end of the first part of the course, there will be an oral exam whose grade will be averaged with the grade of the second part of the course.
