Our regular adult courses are held Monday to Friday (daytime sessions take place between 10am-1pm & evening sessions between 6-9pm) and on Saturday mornings (10am-1pm). We run 4 terms between September and June and each term runs for 8 weeks.
Students will attend one session per week over the course of 8 weeks.
At the start of the academic year around mid-September, students will have the opportunity to enrol for 8 weeks (one term), 16 weeks (two terms) or 32 weeks (four terms).
If you have missed the opportunity to enrol at the start of the academic year, we can enrol new students at the start of each term.
Our teachers are all native speakers and are fully qualified to teach French as a foreign language.
Classes follow the standards of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages:
- Courses for complete beginners right up to near-native standard, 3hrs/week
- Emphasis on communication, both oral and written.
- Opportunities to speak, along-with some guidance on grammar.
Other courses available:
- Conversation Classes B1 > C2 (2hrs/week): These classes offer students the opportunity to revise and improve their listening and communication skills through discussion on various themes, as well as practice pronunciation and learn more effective communication techniques. The courses are tailor-made ; our teachers will choose topics, activities and resources which they feel will motivate students to converse. There is no textbook required as teachers will provide the necessary materials (articles, radio, video, etc.)
- Current Affairs B2 / C2 (2hrs/week): Develop your language skills with a focus on the latest news from the French press, radio and TV ! This class offers an original and motivating approach to current affairs for advanced learners of French. Take part in vibrant discussions and debates on the latest news from the French-speaking world, with the help of press articles and TV reports.
- Academic Class C1 / C2 (3hrs/week): Chaque cours a pour but d’observer la société française à travers ses évolutions, des débats, des faits marquants, etc. Les thèmes analysés en classe peuvent avoir un caractère social, économique, culturel ou encore historique. A partir de documents exclusivement authentiques (presse, radio, TV), chaque classe offrira les conditions d’une réflexion (discussions, échange d’idées) à laquelle les étudiants prendront une part active tout en enrichissant leur vocabulaire et en perfectionnant leurs connaissances grammaticales. A ceci s’ajoute la lecture de deux romans contemporains dans l’année autour desquels les étudiants confronteront leurs impressions de lecteur et à travers lesquels ils aborderont éventuellement certains aspects de la société française ou de son histoire.
- Phonetics Class (1hr/week): improve your fluidity when speaking French and focus on the following skills : pronunciation, accentuation, transcription.
- Grammar Class from level A2 (1hr/week): This course was designed specifically to explain specific grammar points and to help you overcome any difficulties you may encounter when studying French.
If you are currently attending a general French class (3hrs/week) and missed a session, you can now arrange a catch-up one-to-one lesson with a tutor.
Fees apply. Please contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
