A trip in Paris with ALIP – Louvre Museum

The Louvre Museum

louvre

The name alone makes us dream. And there are many of us who dream and visit it every year.

It must be said that there is a lot to see: more than 500,000 works of art are kept there, which is incredible for a Parisian museum.

And among these treasures, there are many masterpieces from around the world. It is a journey through the world and also through the key periods of the history of humanity.

We tell you a short history of this monument of the Parisian artistic life.

« In the Middle Ages, King Philippe Auguste, of the Capetian family, built a fortress near the Seine that would become a royal secondary residence a few centuries later, under King Charles V.
François Ier, in the 18th century, settled there permanently, with his 16 children!

The building will undergo many changes over time but Louis XIV will finally abandon it in favor of the Palace of Versailles. But the museum project was born with him.
It was at the time of the French Revolution that the first royal collections were exhibited.

The Louvre was almost destroyed by fire during the events of the Commune. But the museum was saved from the flames and continued to evolve.

In 1988, the architect Ming Pei built his glass pyramids there. In 2012, Islamic art made its debut in the museum. Today, two “Louvres” are born: in Lens in France and in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.»

 

♥ What will we see at the Louvre? ♥

Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa (1503), Veronese’s The Wedding at Cana (1562-1563), Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa (1818-1819), Ingres’ The Great Odalisque (1814)… And let’s not forget Khorsabad’s Winged Bulls (circa 710 BC), the famous Scroll of the Sea (circa 1880 AD), and the C.), the famous Crouching Scribe (circa 2620-2500 BC), the Venus of Milo (circa 150-130 BC), the Victory of Samothrace (circa 200-185 BC)
The Venus of Milo (c. 150-130 BC), the Victory of Samothrace (c. 200-185 BC) and many others.

Have a nice trip in art and culture!

Discover the interview of Caroline, our French teacher and coach

 

“Hello Caroline, what French course did you teach at ALIP?

  • Hello, I just left an amazing little group of international students that I followed from November 22 to December 17, 2022. The next group will run from January 17 to February 11, 2022.

Who were your students?

  • Ilaria and Davide from Italy, Sueli from Brazil, Rumeysa from Turkey, Jessy from Indonesia and Anna from Romania. They were all beginners in French, except Sueli who had some good basics in French.

How did you work with this group?

  • In fact, I adapted to their levels in French and I progressed according to what was happening in the class, the motivations and the needs of each student.

We have seen all the tenses and French grammar up to A2 level. We worked on French vocabulary allowing us to present ourselves (our qualities, our flaws, our passions), to speak about our close relations, our origins, our life and our work, but also about our hobbies. We were also able to talk about projects and work on the resume. Ilaria and Davide were looking for a job. We helped them (in French).

We also saw the history of Paris, of the districts, and of French language…

There was a very warm atmosphere in our French classes. Everyone had something to talk about, to say about life, love, work… One was hesitating in her love choices, the other was looking for her professional future. Any subject helped us progress in oral and written French throughout the different French lessons.

What is the ALIP touch that you brought to this French course?

  • Ah, we were close to celebrating Christmas, so we each had a secret friend to treat and on the last day we had a buffet and gave each other gifts (we had to guess who the secret friend was and what the gift contained… in French!).

We also went on cultural trips in Paris and had lunch together at a restaurant.

The other specificity that I develop at ALIP is that I am a certified coach in personal and intercultural development. In times of covid, it is important to know how to welcome the person in his or her entirety with a lot of kindness and generosity.”

 

Thanks Caroline!

ALIP Learn French in Paris

Learning a language is living it.

 

Taking a French course in Paris means immersing yourself in a dynamic and multicultural city. But you still have to choose your language school carefully.

At ALIP, our heart has been beating for international students for a very long time. And above all, we are convinced that a friendly and dynamic atmosphere is necessary to develop the desire to learn.

ALIP‘s French courses include a wide variety of modules, where you will meet many different and warm personalities. Our teachers are coaches, companions, professional experts… But all of them have at heart to maintain a family and friendly atmosphere for all.

Among our activities, in addition to the various modules, you will join our project course: in small teams, you will create together a prototype of an object, a festival project, an exhibition, a reportage… Each project invites you to meet Parisians, French speakers, foreigners, professionals or students and thus improve your French.

Our intercultural challenges offer you the opportunity to develop your team spirit while having fun. A challenge is launched to all the classes and may the best one win (shhh, it’s a secret, but in reality, everyone wins something at the end…): short film festival, pastry contest, French word challenge…

Finally, during your stay at ALIP, you will celebrate because that’s how we progress: educational activities, fun visits, and especially parties! At ALIP, we celebrate everything! The whole world is a party, we celebrate all the important traditions of our students’ countries and we also share our own customs.

So, at ALIP you are sure to learn a modern, lively and dynamic language.

We are waiting for you!

Note taking for University

 

In your graduate studies in France, there are many new skills to learn. ALIP School, a specialist in university education preparation, shares with you some elements to help you.

Today, we’re looking at note taking.
For your studies in graduate school or university, you need to know how to take notes. Teachers no longer give you their lectures but often give long speeches. You need to be able to take down the essentials of the lecture yourself so that you can work on them at home. It is sometimes difficult to listen and write at the same time. But you will see, to memorize a lesson, if you have written it yourself it will always be easier 😉

Here are some tips for getting started with note-taking skills. For more guidance and practice in other skills, join our graduate school preparation course.

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!
