This article aims to analyze a training course in French as a language of integration (FLI) for Syrian learners who are not in a language immersion situation in the transitional host country and Jordanian learners in the center of the Princess Basma for development in Jordan. To carry out this research, we collected the data through two types of field surveys, namely the questionnaire and the direct interviews. 
The results show that the content of the training course should rather target oral interaction activities to meet the needs of learners. The training of the FLI trainer on using the action-oriented approach encourages the introduction of this type of activity. They also show that learning the FLI can be a good way of social integration in the transitional host country, particularly through the interpersonal relationships that are established between learners of two nationalities.
Key words: French language of integration (FLI), migrant, refugee, oral interaction, Princess Basma's center for development
