French courses this semester
Currently, the French courses are being offered online (using Zoom for synchronous online teaching, and the Moodle platform for asynchronous online learning). As soon as the pandemic eases up and the institute has the appropriate rooms available, the plan is to switch back to face-to-face language teaching in the classroom.
