French courses for adults
The French for adults course program is intended for working adults who want to learn french for every day use. Most of our students learn either as a hobby or for business and travel proposes. The courses are all in a small group set up of 2-4 students maximum. Having reduced groups is the key to efficiently learn how to use a language, since students will get plenty of chances to interact in class and be in an interactive environment where they can effectively use and practise. There are 2 to 3 new class openings every month typically on weekdays evening or Saturdays.
The courses will follow the official syllabus to learn French as a foreign language through books that are interactive yet well structured. The progression path will advance from A1.1 (the most beginner level) all the way till C1.
What makes us different is that all our French courses are limited to only 3-4 students per class. This setting is essential to learn the language effectively, because a lot of interaction with the teacher and the students is needed to be able to practise and learn to master French.

In the introductory French adults course you will learn the basics of the French language. This includes all the main topics at a basic level including but not limited to greetings, self introduction, description of people, your home, your city and neighborhood, descriptions of places, your daily routine, free time etc. All the skills will be practiced, that is reading, writing, listening and speaking. The lessons are interactive and the main goal is that you learn to effectively communicate the ideas on the topics that you have learned. As lessons are in a small group class setting the teacher can slightly adapt the lessons to the needs of each group and adapt the pace so that everyone can follow the class. If classmates wish to put more emphasis on a certain topic like “shopping” the teacher can give the students extra resources and materials to expand their vocabulary and use of the language for the topic of interest. The first level is A.1.1 After completing 3 levels (A1.1, A1.2 and A1.3) students will reach the full A1 level and could attend the public examination DELF (Diploma of French as a foreign Language). Extra exam preparation lessons can be provided on a group or individual basis if students feel particularly weak at a certain area like the speaking part of the exam.
