French for Fashion


The French and fashion courses for international students at Mod’Art School ended this week.

24 hours of classes for this excellent group of B2/C1 level! Congratulations to all of them and a small preview of their distance learning program.

From the beginning, the course was very dynamic thanks to the students’ involvement. They showed seriousness and motivation by fully participating in the courses.

Because these international students come from all the Mod’Art classes, it was important to start this session with some ice-breaking games to get to know each other. We then studied together a wide range of French fashion, but also the evolution of men’s fashion and Fashion Week.

We also devoted a module to the study of the phenomenon of “repatriates”, a theme that spoke to the students and allowed for discussions among them. Grammatical emphasis on the present subjunctive to express doubt or negation.

We also discussed about Esperanto, which allowed the students to better understand the expressions of doubt and willpower already worked on the previous week.

The performing arts were discussed in order to develop the students’ cultural openness: study of excerpts from Théâtre de Boulevard, reading of interviews with actors, excerpts from radio programs dealing with theater in France. This also allowed the students to be exposed to the expression of time (simultaneity, anteriority and posteriority).

We devoted several courses to the CV, the cover letter and the job interview. In view of the internships they will have to do during their studies at Mod’Art, we spent time improving their CVs and letters. The students were thus able to put into practice the expression of time seen previously to detail their career path.

The final exam allowed students to show their mastery of the cultural and grammatical notions covered in class, by writing a cover letter for a job offer and a paragraph giving advice for integration in their country of origin.

Comment, get informed, join us!

Marketing English training


At ALIP, the professors are specialists in their fields. In addition to teaching the language, they train professionals or future High School students in specialized language.

Today, interview with Michelle, our marketing English teacher.

  • ALIP : Michelle, can you tell us what is the objective of this 20h Marketing workshop in English?
  • Michelle : The general theme of my course revolves around Fundamentals and differences of Marketing & advertising. We also discuss Public Relations & communications.


  • ALIP : Which competencies are primarily targeted?
  • Michelle : There is a lot of them! Here is what I think is most important Students will get a basic fondation on the principle of Marketing and Advertising. They will build marketing plans, practice their speech and presentation skills. They will launch their own product and be confident in advertising, marketing and potentially selling the hypothetical product. They will work on their oral and written English skills which will help them for their future studies in Business School or in the professional world.


  • ALIP : Can you tell us some of the main steps in your course?
  • Michelle : Yes, of course. During the first lessons, the question we ask ourselves is: What is a target audience? I bring some ads and we discuss why the ad is appealing. We compare what the ad is selling, promoting, TA, visuals … We also work on the principles of Marketing: prices, place, promotion & product. The students understand these concepts by practicing themselves with mock trials. After that, we analyze the successes and failures of Public Relations Strategies with case studies to work on. The students share their own opinions on subjects. Through the reading of several specialized articles, students will be able to discuss the success and the brand marketing of companies. It is also an opportunity to learn how to describe graphs and figures. Students practice professional presentations with all this vocabulary. Finally, we manage to work on the creation of a product launch: students present their products and marketing strategies.


  • ALIP : How does this course conclude?
  • Michelle : After the final evaluation, their presentation is produced, we review how they have improved as well as any recommendations and advice for the future. The goal for me is to make sure that the students have met their goals and we discuss individually their strengths and weaknesses.


  • ALIP : Thank you very much Michelle for sharing 😉
