ILI Project: Migrants trained in French at the University of Namur

Since 2015, the University of Namur, in partnership with the Hénallux teaching department, has launched a number of initiatives to help migrants. They are part of a Local Integration Initiative (LII) project recognised by the Walloon Region. As well as organising intercultural activities, a French language course is offered for levels B1, B2 and C1 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). This year, around 15 students took part. Here's a look back at this rewarding experience, in the service of a more inclusive society.
