Learn more about our summer French immersion programs’ teaching methods! We have courses for all levels and ages.

First & Last day of school with French Summer Classes

First day: On the first Monday of your French language program, new students sit for a language test – except complete beginners and children. The result of the French test allows us to place you in a group of our level. During this welcoming morning, students meet each other, enjoy welcome drinks and croissants.

Last day: On the last day of your courses, you will receive a certificate (certificat de participation). Each Friday, parents are invited to a performance (songs, drama, poetry, dialogue, etc.) presented by children and teenagers. 

Study material

Teachers provide you with copies during the course. The student must provide writing materials. For teenager and adult courses, a pocket or electronic dictionary is useful.

Course content​

Lessons are well-planned and adapted to your language level and interest, for maximum interaction between class members.

We teach you to communicate in French through role playing, oral presentations and practical conversation. Courses are designed to develop language proficiency through the use of the listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. We put emphasize on verbal skills, grammar, writing and reading. The student is encouraged to speak as much as possible. Outside classes, we encourage you to test your new language skills in various situations (with your host family, at provençal markets and shops).

Small class sizes

We have small size class, made of maximum 10 students, which allow student-oriented teaching and the active participation of all the students during each lesson.

One academic lesson lasts 45 minutes. This is a guide to numbers of lessons and their equivalent duration in hours.

Lessons & Duration
10 lessons = 7,5 hours
20 lessons = 15 hours
30 lessons = 22,5 hours

The more you study, the more you learn and progress!
