The official training language of the students is French. However, to prepare them for integration into regional and international administrations, English courses are organized for them. In order to facilitate language learning, ENSEA has set up a modern laboratory. This laboratory also aims to speed up the learning of the French language for nationals of other linguistic areas, particularly English, Portuguese and Spanish speaking countries.
ENSEA has started expanding its recruitment scope to include non-French-speaking countries in Africa:
- 5 students from South Africa including 4 in the Division of Engineers in Statistics and 1 in the division of Engineers in Statistics and Economics enrolled in 2008-2009.
- 24 English-speaking students enrolled in the division of Technical Assistants in Statistics in 2009-2010, including two from Liberia and 22 from South Africa.
- From Portuguese-speaking countries: Mozambique, Guinea Bissau, Sao Tome and Principe, Angola…
- From English-speaking countries: Gambia, Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone…1 South African student has in 2009-2010 completed his schooling in the special cycle of upgrading Technical Assistants.11 English-speaking students enrolled in the division of Technical Assistants in Statistics in 2010-2011, including one from Liberia and 10 from South Africa.Steps are being taken to bring in students from abroad:
A partnership with the Language Learning Centre of Provence University (CALUP) was signed in 2010 to maximize the optimal use of the laboratory. A Co-certification of the services by CALUP and ENSEA will make it possible to issue certificates attesting to the level of languages’ knowledge of the learners.
