Placement assistance on the cards
Jean Philippe Bottin, director, talks about a new centre in Gurgaon and moreeducation Updated: Aug 21, 2012 17:54 IST
In Delhi NCR, we have two schools of French language and two cultural centres. Around 2,000 students are enrolled in every batch. We have three batches in a year. In India, we have 14 Alliance Francaise centres. We intend to concentrate on the Gurgaon centre this year. With more French companies moving to the satellite city, the focus of that facility will be on corporate French both on campus and within companies. We intend increasing our activities in the Gurgaon campus both in terms of regular courses and courses for corporates.
No doubt, online courses are important. However, we recommend regular face-to-face interaction for language courses. It’s best to use the online medium as an education support tool.
We introduced an evaluation form for students this year and almost all of them have requested for a placement facility. We hope to hold meetings between students and companies on campus this year. This practice is prevalent on our Chennai and Pondicherry campus.
