Four-year degree Language and Literature Study was organized within the framework of the Seminar at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade and Skopje. Assembling a few Serbian and Russian experts, who received a doctor's degree in France, as well as a few French lectors and language assistants the Seminar in Belgrade had been following its tradition. The French Literature Program was offered in terms of lectures, exercise courses and seminars while the learning topics were divided into a series of lectures, or according to the literature movements or schools. The Language Program focused on the written and spoken exercises, including a variety of topics. Aside from the special subjects, students were obligated to attend the courses of the related subjects as well. The work of then just established Seminar in Skopje was based on the same program, but with a small group of teaching staff. The General Pedagogic Seminar, involving the theoretic lectures and practical training of methodology was a welcome innovation in the education of the prospective grammer school teachers. Moreover, French language acquired the status of the second foreign language within the framework of curriculum of the other departmens at the Faculty of Philosophy. At the College of Pre-school Teacher Training in Belgrade French language was taught either as a major or as a minor subject with a view to improve the knowledge of the Pre-school teachers. On the other hand, French acquired the status of vocational language at the Higer School of Economics in Belgrade.
