Is anyone who has taken INALCO (Paris) (Institut National des langues et Civilizations Orientales) courses aware of students (or maybe you have done it yourself ?) who would live in the country of their focus language of their diploma during the year, and who would come back to Paris simply to take the exams ?

Is it a possibility ? And is it adviseable ?

What's more, what are the tuition fees of Inalco ? I somehow was not able to find them. I must have missed something. Are they cheap, since it is attached to a french public university ?

Thank you for your time ! :-)

In addition to English, answers in french are greatly appreciated, and spanish is also welcome

J'ai suivi quelques cours de deuxième année. C'était très concentré sur la structure de la langue et sa grammaire. Peu de chances que tu acquières ces connaissances théoriques après un séjour pratique. J'ai beau avoir une maîtrise parfaite de la langue française, je suis incapable de décomposer une phrase et te dire quelle fonction ont les différents éléments et pourquoi, quand et comment se font certains accords.

Se pose aussi la question de l'utilité : si tu gères une langue au niveau requis pour l'interpréter, ton CV parlera de lui même. Pas besoin alors d'avoir une licence en langues étrangères.
