France Langue, a rewarding and effective method

Our academic methodology is based on active learing, tailor-made programmes and individual learning support of our students.

 

We have developed a method and a pace of progression as well as tailored activities so that students can reach their individual objectives according to the CEFR( Common European Framework of Reference for Languages – around 100 hours for levels A1 & A2, 150 hours from level B1).

 

Immersion begins in our classrooms: students put the language into practice to draw on their knowledge, skills and reflexes to use in real situations. Students are constantly interacting in both written and oral French and are therefore active in their learning.

 

The working atmosphere in our school is both friendly and serious; the pace is dynamic and steady to actively develop the language skills of students. From the point of view of our students, this means, “I’m learning, I’m enjoying learning, I’m actively participating so I’m progressing”.

 

Teaching materials used in class include recent books, audio and video documents, newspaper articles, internet resources, literature and material specifi cally developed by our teachers. Activities promote communication so that students can adapt themselves to different types of situation (day-to-day, educational, social, economic or professional).

 

Classes are organised according to levels (all 6 levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages are represented in our schools) and learning objectives, making sure of a good nationality mix.
