    The Intermar 3-credit module is being tested from December 2012 till May 2013 at the eight maritime and naval academies. The learning is blended (meaning that students work in class with a teacher and outside of class individually or in small groups with or without Internet connection).

    The materials have been produced by the language teachers and experts of the consortium. It is available to all participants at the collaborative platform of Sorbonne 3 in Paris.
