"The France Langue teams have been able to offer us regular candidacies of serious, motivated and pleasant people, according to our needs.
We have concretized hiring of seasonal employees. These multilingual students were able to use their language skills in contact with our international clientele.
This professional immersion within our teams allowed them in return to develop their practice of French, while benefiting from a significant professional experience in the sectors of tourism and / or restaurant sector.
Fully satisfied with this partnership with France Langue, we wish to continue and develop our relations, in the framework of future recruitments just as qualitative. "

The work place of an international hotel is perfectly adapted to the kind of professional experience for the students wishing to develop their language skills. Depending on the length of the internship, we were able to adapt to personalized careers with the agreement and the support of the France Langue teams.
