Certificat d'Aptitude au Professorat de l'Enseignement Secondaire (CAPES) in English, Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maitres d'Aquitaine (Teaching College).
Equivalent to a M.Ed or a M.A. in teaching teaching ESL. The degree is a two-year degree, the first of which is spent preparing for a highly competitive exam in Anglo-American civilization, literature, translation, linguistics and didactics.
For the chosen few (about 10-15% only), the second year is spent studying didactics (of Modern Languages), and teaching, as a tutored trainee, both in junior and senior high schools, while still attending college courses.
My dissertation was about a project in which students shot and edited videos in ESL class.
