Our educational approach

Je parle en français dès le premier coursI speak French from the first lesson!

From the very beginning, our teachers immerse you in the French language and focus on oral competency and prononciation. Each lesson plans are selected according to a progressive difficulty in order to allow learners to easily speak in French and integrate the language structures.





Culture françaiseI learn a foreign language – I discover a culture!

Each of our students has access to a digital library Culturethèque. More than 230 000 documents (audio, videos, BD, magazines, etc…) are available to pursue the francophone adventure beyond the classroom!




Japprends le français dans des conditions optimalesI learn French in optimum conditions!

Students are taught in small groups to ensure high quality exchanges. Modern and well equipped classrooms (computers, video projector) ensure the use of motivating audio-visual media. Children's lessons are given in a dedicated space suitable for the little ones




Une approche communicative et pragmatiqueA communicative and pragmatic approach

Both verbal and written skills are developed. Our goal is to get our learners to act in French in everyday life: to understand an announcement in an airport, to fill out a form, to navigate on a website, to make a reservation, to write an e-mail, to speak during a meeting…





La grammaireGrammar and vocabulary: a different approach 

Grammar and vocabulary are not neglected, on the contrary! Each course allows you to develop one or more language points and to apply them directly through oral and written expression activities. You work on them to use them in a concrete situation, so acquisitions are made gradually.




Une démarche actionnelle des documents authentiques 2An action-oriented approach, authentic documents

Courses are organized around recent methods which follow the principles of the action-oriented approach and additional supports: videos, songs, advertisements, extracts from radio stations or newspapers to dive into the French-speaking reality. You are thus immersed in situations that prepare you to use the language in real situations to carry out social actions.



Le Cadre Européen Commun de Référence 3The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages

The levels of our courses follow the classification and recommendations of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages : A1-A2-B1-B2-C1-C2 .  You can easily measure your progress and know which diploma to take. By validating your level with the appropriate diploma, you can officially and sustainably assert your skills.
