The main goal is to ensure that the students quickly get the basis they need to communicate. The first lessons put them in practical situations of everyday life. At the same time, an intensive work on how to pronounce the language and how to understand the sounds is made.


The students reinforce their previous learnings and develop their lexical and grammatical knowledge. At this step, we give priority to oral understanding and producing.


At this level, we put the emphasis on linguistique knowledge (syntaxe, grammar, vocabulary) by studying different kinds of texts (litterature, newspapers, articles, songs...). Speaking and listening skills are practised in little debates for example.


In order to update the knowledge of the students, we do precise work on the linguistic part of the language. Speaking and listening are treated in a more complexe way, the students being encouraged to build their own argumentation.

French with specific objectives

At the same time, or independently, we teach French with specific objectives such as French for business, for tourism, juridic french... These lessons are adapted on specific requests and are mostly taught on individual or small group lessons basis.
