Projects around language learning
Once enrolled at Université Paris-Saclay, students gain access to an array of modules and resources to improve their language level in a context that promotes interculturality amongst peers:
DELTA is a blended learning resource (face-to-face/web 2.0) in French as a foreign language, designed to support Université Paris-Saclay's international students throughout their studies in terms of academic skills and methodology, taking a fully intercultural approach.
Agora Paris-Saclay is a participatory media and community platform where students from Université Paris-Saclay can publish articles, videos, podcasts, etc. about their activities, thoughts, creations and experiences, for all their peers to enjoy.
