3. Group sessions

During the group sessions, students will present in English a subject related to energy.  Every group will be supervised by a professor from a department of the faculty of applied sciences of the ULg as well as an English teacher. Students will attend two group sessions in total.  During every one of these sessions,  they will present with one or two other students a subject related to energy. The subjects are assigned to the students. Every presentation will last around 15-20 minutes and will be followed by 15-20 minutes of discussion. Every session will number around 5-7 presentations. The number of students per session will be in around 20-30.
