Your French lessons

Objectives

Our goal is to help our students improve their French language skills providing them with authentic and relevant French courses. You will be working on grammar, syntax, conjugation and especially conversational French. You will also discover multiple cultural facets of France. We will help you understand French better through studying the CEFRL‘s five key skills (oral and written comprehension, written production, oral interaction and oral expression).

Methodology

We offer a specific approach of spoken French in communicative situations. Our French lessons are fun, interactive and challenging. We also follow the communicative and interactional method of the CEFRL.

Teachers

Each of our teachers has a university degree with a specialization in teaching French as a foreign language. They are all creative, dynamic and proficient with a successful track record in teaching French in France and/or abroad. They know how to make your courses stimulating and profitable.

Our director of studies runs the team meetings twice a week to follow up students’ improvement and to assure class homogeneity.

Teaching materials

For our group lessons, we use FFL Manuals (Cosmopolites, Défi, Alter Ego+) to provide our students with an organized and progressive way to learn French. Our teachers use authentic documents, audio and video documents, games.

Evaluation

Students receive a certificate stating the level reached. The levels are based on the CEFRL scale (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages):

—> A1 (Beginner Level) | A2 (Elementary Level)

—> B1 (Threshold Level) | B2 (Intermediate Level)

—> C1 & C2 (Advanced Levels)
