European Language Label for IFOS

The IFos platform of the Institut français, dedicated to professional French, has just been distinguished with the 2015 European Language Label.
On January 21, 2016, the Institut français in Paris was awarded the European Language Label at the Maison de l'Europe in Paris for its IFos distance learning platform.
Intended for teachers wishing to receive training or improve their skills in teaching professional French or French for specific objectives (FOS), IFos above all targets professionalization, wishing to make French a language of employment.
Developed in partnership with the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie Paris Île-de-France, the Centre de linguistique appliquée de l’Université de Franche-Comté and TV5Monde, and the financing of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, IFos was launched in January 2015.
The European Language Label distinguishes European initiatives and innovative projects in the field of language teaching and learning, through an annual contest organized by the European Commission and national agencies in each one of the 33 countries of Europe in the realm of education. The theme of the 2015 contest was ‘‘Languages and Social Inclusion’’.
