Martinique is a Caribbean island that is part of the French Lesser Antilles. Famous for its sandy beaches with looming coconut palms, it is a unique and ideal place to learn French, in the sun with both feet in the turquoise water.
The school France Langue is located a few meters away from the beach of Anse Mitan, the ideal location to discover all the water activities that offers the island.
French lessons - 20 lessons per week
As in all our France Langue schools, the main goal of the programme is to develop the 4 fundamental linguistic skills of French that are written and oral expression and comprehension. As everywhere else, the focus is on oral communication to allow you to be comfortable, everyday, in your experience of life in the French.
Organization of the course
Classes take place from Monday to Friday, according to the following schedule:
Monday: 10:30am to 12:30pm
Tuesday to Friday: 9am-12:30pm
At the end of an oral level test, conducted on Monday morning at 9:30am you will be placed in one of our classes according to your oral and written level (online test).
France Langue Martinique guarantees the opening of the programme regardless of the number of students enrolled. This flexibility is made possible thanks to the introduction of multi-level classes. Our teachers are specifically trained to help you progress in French in the same class, regardless of their level of departure.
This particularity of the school implies:
- an autonomy of your learning
- interaction with all students
- no manual to buy
To complete the learning, a pedagogical outing will be offered every week, outside of your classes. This visit will be an opportunity for you to practice your French outside of the classroom. Accompanied by your teacher, you will discover the specificities of the Caribbean life (leaf weaving, music or local cuisine, visit of Fort-De-France or Schœlcher library or go back in time to the museum of Slavery).
Methodology and teaching
The main objective of our "actional" and communicative pedagogy is above all to make you "operational" in a Francophone environment. Perfect mastery of the grammatical and lexical structures of the French language is no longer an objective, we always favor the transmission and understanding of a clear and coherent message in a given situation.
In our small school where the mix of levels of students is taken into account, the dynamics and mutual help that teachers put forward will be a motivating factor for your French learning. In class we work with a variety of media such as role play, group work or peer work to create an atmosphere of trust and interaction that is conducive to communication.
In addition, we practice the "opening class" by bringing together all the students of the school in one classfrom for linguistic activities or school projects. Finally a whole school gathering is done once a week for pedagogical outings.
