Organization of classes
Before your arrival (for a registration online), or at school, it all starts with a written test to define your level. This written test will be validated by an oral test on the first day of your classes.
This will enable the school to place you in the class best corresponding to your level. This class will not exceed 12 students, providing you with an even more enriching and formative experience.
The weekly courses are general French classes in which you will work and practice all the aspects of the language throughout the week. To practice and improve, listening comprehension, reading of written texts, discussion and spoken expression or writing expression are an integral part of the classes, without forgetting grammar lessons, vocabulary and structures to reinforce your French level.
General French classes aim for the practice and use 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 communication that you will encounter in your daily life in France or in any french speaking environment. Weekly 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.
