STANDARD COURSE

Given our location (only 15 minutes away from France) French has become a very useful tool for communication. The French Standard Course is designed for all adults and education professionals who either start learning French for the first time or who want to maintain or improve their level.

Through a methodology that focuses on the development of communicative skills, the standard course enables you to acquire grammatical content from its use in context.

 

How do we achieve this?

  • Free level test and personalised academic guidance from the beginning based on the test results
  • Team of native teachers, qualified and with extensive experience in teaching French as a foreign language
  • Interactive and dynamic lessons in small groups where you will improve not only your grammar, but most importantly, your fluency
  • Continuous assessment and feedback from the teachers through assessment tests
  • Activities dealing with current topics that contextualise the use of French
  • Media Library available for reference or to borrow complementary material to take home
  • Free access to the Virtual Campus, where you can complement your on-school work, extend and share your knowledge, have access to multimedia materials and continue with your progress from wherever you are

CONVERSATION

The Standard Conversation Course in French is designed for all those adults and educational professionals who want to focus their learning on the oral aspect of the language. Unlike many other conversation courses, our Standard Conversation Course in French not only aims to improve oral expression and the acquisition of specific vocabulary depending on each real life contextualised situation, but our methodology, centred on phonetic learning and correct intonation will also allow you to achieve that much desired “oral fluency”.

It will enable you to interact correctly in French, because conversation in French is not only speaking French, it means learning the use of specific structures, idioms, listening and speaking periods, voice modulation….In short, all those pragmatic aspects of the language that provide the message we are communicating with its human quality.

How do we achieve this?

  • Free level test and personalised academic guidance from the beginning based on the test results
  • Team of native teachers, qualified and with extensive experience in teaching French as a foreign language
  • Interactive and dynamic lessons in small groups focused on vocabulary acquisition, pronunciation improvement, intonation and non verbal aspects of communication in French
  • Continuous assessment and feedback from the teachers
  • Course materials provided by the teacher
  • Activities dealing with current topics that contextualise the use of French
  • Media Library available for reference or to borrow complementary material to take home
  • Free access to the Virtual Campus, where you can complement your on-school work, extend and share your knowledge, have access to multimedia materials and continue with your progress from wherever you are
