When you register, you complete a written test online to evaluate your level in French. Upon your first day at France Langue, your level will be confirmed by an oral test with a teacher or an educational advisor. You will then be oriented in a class adapted to your level.
There is a small number of 12 international students per class. It allows a longer speaking time for everyone and enables exchanges and conversations in class. This is the perfect opportunity to create strong links with students from all around the world.
In class, the only language used is French for immediate and total immersion.

The pedagogical programme is tailor-made and adjusted according to your progress during your stay at France Langue.

At France Langue, our main concern is to make you progress in French so that you are independent on a daily basis.
Our goal is to teach you to speak, read, understand and write in French.
Our pedagogy, based on a communicative and action-oriented approach, guides you to carry out "tasks" in the classroom that you can immediately reuse when leaving the school: order a dish in a restaurant, buy a French baguette, read a metro plan, or ask for information are some examples.
Throughout your stay at France Langue, you will be evaluated by your teacher to ensure that your progress is always consistent and in line with the rest of the group. Every Friday, the teacher will check that you have acquired and understood the new skills seen during the week. Once you have completed a level, you will take a mock DELF / DALF exam to confirm your move to the next level up. At the end of your stay, we will issue you a certificate of end of session mentioning the number of hours of courses followed and the level you have reached.
The France Langue schools are exam centers, you can at any time ask to take an official French exam in order to evaluate and certify your level of French.
