Our teaching method – Summer courses in France
First day : On the first Monday of your French language program, new students sit for a language test – except complete beginners and children. The results of the French test allow 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), attesting your participation in the French summer courses, the number of hours and your level. Each Friday, parents are invited to a performance (songs, drama, poetry, dialogue, etc.) presented by children and teenagers.
Teachers provide you with copies and verb book during the course. The student must provide writing materials. For teenager and adult courses, a pocket or electronic dictionary would be useful.
Our French language courses can help you get prepared for your next academic year, language exams in the framework of GCSE, A-Level, IB diploma, Abitur, Matura, Maturita, leaving certificate levels preparation and DELF/DALF French certifications. All programmes and courses are professionally designed according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CECR) of the Council of Europe.
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 without neglecting grammar, writting 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).
We have small size class, in average 6 students and with maximum 10 students, which allow student-oriented teaching and the active participation of all the students during each lesson.
