To continue studying languages independently, the Language Centre offers free-access to the Multimedia Centre for Personalized Learning.

You can benefit from:

  • resources which have been specially designed for autonomous language learning;
  • learning activities that correspond to your level and to your needs;
  • resources and tools which will enable you to better manage free-access learning.

There are two ways to access the EMA:

  • Remote access: use our PlurieL learning platform to connect online at any time;
  • On campus: go to the EMA Centre (room CE 2 347) during the semesters, so long as it is a “free-access” period (see timetables). There is no need to register beforehand. Someone will be present to show you how the EMA works and help you find the resources you need. You will have access to learning activities which are not available online

The Multimedia Centre (EMA) is not open in the intersemester periods.

Processus d'apprentissage

Linguistic TANDEM opens up new avenues of learning. In addition to the traditional language courses, the emphasis is on oral communication. Two speakers of different languages form a TANDEM and teach each other their respective language by meeting face-to-face or virtually (Skype, Face time, Zoom, etc.). helps you to find a language partner within your institution or at a partner university.

Don’t wait any longer: go for it!

Free offer, open to all EPFL students and employees

The Tandem Program of the Arts Faculty/EFLE is a very effective complement to the free-access periods in the Multimedia Centre.
