Content information

Starting level: basic knowledge of French, level A2+

This course is aimed at pharmacists, pharmacist assistants and all those who are active in the pharmaceutical sector and would like to deepen their specialised knowledge of French often needed on the job. In this course, you sharpen your communication skills in French.

You learn how to ask questions, explain the treatment in simple terms, give instructions, refer to a physician, etc. You also learn how to make telephone calls in French, acquiring the necessary telephone jargon (putting someone through, taking a message, writing down numbers, etc.). The difference between formal and informal language will also be dealt with.

Furthermore, you build a broad and specifically pharmaceutical vocabulary (medication, anatomy, clinical pictures, verbs, etc.) by means of extensive vocabulary lists and vocabulary exercises as well as interactive speaking exercises which try to reflect your professional context as accurately as possible.
