French for Teens
Our french for teens courses are separated into students who already learned french in earlier years and students who are total beginners.
The objective of these lessons is to foster fluency in the french language, train students to use french in every day life scenarios and ultimately prepare them to score a high mark in their french exams.
We run specific courses to prepare students for the most common french exams, you can see more information below in the French for exams section.
French 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 2-5 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.
You may check the course content for the adult beginners level here.
