In order to follow the current economic issues, the Ecole des Mines in Nantes launched this project: how to learn Chinese with the use of the ICTs. Learning modules are available online for engineering students. The learning method is based on the use of the ICTS: the Internet, smart-phones (I-phone application) and social networks. The beginners have access to 5 modules (introduce yourself, your family, talk about your hobbies, shop and go to the restaurant) whenever and wherever they want. In addition, a web community is available to exchange, help and support each other.
Consistency with the European policies in the field of language learning
