20 or 26 lessons per week : Intensive French programmes for rapid progress!

Our General French programs are built around a basic program of 20 lessons, to acquire the fundamentals of the French language and to work on the 4 essential skills (oral and written comprehension, oral and written expression).

These programs are flexible so that everyone can personalize their course by adding 3 modules (6 lessons) in the form of additional workshops.
Our long-term courses are available for all levels and fit in with our methodical progress process over 1 to 4 terms periods.

You will develop your language skills in both oral and written French via long-stay immersion in both French language and culture.

You can also enhance your programme by adding linguistic reinforcement or cultural discovery modules in order to familiarize yourself with the French workplace environment, prepare for French exams or for French higher education.

How do the classes work?  

The long term courses are general French classes in which you will work and practice all the aspects of the language each week throughout the term. Whether it is listening comprehension, reading of written texts, discussion and oral expression or writing expression, each element is an integral part of the classes, without forgetting grammar lessons, vocabulary and structures of the language to reinforce your French level.  

The aim of general French classes is to train you to speak and communicate in French in your daily life. Authentic documents, vocabulary, discussions, debates, interactive exercises : all is made to immerse you in real concrete situations, in an authentic situation of communication that you will encounter in your daily life in Paris or in any French speaking environment. Long term classes also introduce cultural elements through which you will discover different traditional and cultural aspects of France and of the francophone world and thus deepen your knowledge of the country and its culture while studying the language.  

The length of the long term programmes allows a monitoring of the students and a more adapted and personalised approach. The teachers get to know the students personally and can then answer to some of your needs and specific demands throughout the term.  

The classes are closed groups allowing you to develop a feeling of friendship and mutual support with your classmates throughout the term. It is not rare to see beautiful friendships begin within the walls of France Langue! 

Our pedagogy

At France Langue, we provide you with real solid and serious French classes in order to improve your level. However, French classes are very often interactive and playful. Songs, videos and games are part of our lessons so that the learning remains a moment of pleasure and sharing.

At the end of each term a personal progress report will be issued by the school and your teacher. This will underline your improvements, your capacities and your personal implication throughout the course in learning French. The report will also state the French level achieved at the end of the term. This level will be assessed by a moke-exam of DELF/DALF through which you will be able to show your capacities in French and to register for the next level (if you are registered for an additional term at the school).

The long-term programme in short:  

Long-term courses in France Langue are:  

 

  • Closed groups offering a warm and friendly learning atmosphere and a close contact with the teachers and the other students;
  • A real personalised monitoring to give you the best chances of succeeding;
