The appropriate duration for a French language course depends on the individual and also on the student’s mother tongue. The duration specified in the above table is only an average based on the experience of former international students.
Gustavo, I am from Guatemala, enrolled in the final year of the work-based engineering course. I have learnt French within 3 months.
Marta, I didn’t speak a word of French when I came to France. After 6 months of intensive French classes, I was able to take the part-time engineering course.
