About the language Centre

Special situation due to the Covid crisis

We do not yet know whether the courses for the Spring Semester 2021 will be taught by Webex, face-to-face or highflex teaching. The teaching of our courses follows the same rules as all teaching at the UniNE, according to the protection plan. And, as you know, no decision has been taken for February 2021.

The intensive course that takes place before the start of the semester will be taught by Webex.

Should all or part of the teaching take place by Webex, we are committed to providing registered students with optimal conditions for learning in small groups. In addition, the activities and format of the course will be designed to allow as much interaction as possible.

The Language Centre (LC) offers students as well as academic and administrative staff of the University of Neuchâtel the opportunity to train their linguistic competence in English, German, Spanish and Italian. These services are also open to students and academic staff of other Swiss universities/HES and members of the SAN.

We provide different types of weekly courses during the semester in English and German, as well as intensive courses during the spring break.

The LC aims to promote autonomous learning. Accordingly, a multimedia self-access learning centre (Espace Multimédia d’Auto-apprentissage = E.M.A.) is now opened: a place where learners can find resources and advice. Moreover, the LC organises all kinds of activities to develop and support learner’s autonomy, offering tutorials, monolingual and bilingual tandem programmes and workshops to help learn languages with apps.

The LC only focuses on English, German, Spanish and Italian. If you are interested to learn French as a foreign language, please see the Institut de langue et civilisation françaises (ILCF).
