We propose intensive French courses at a rate of 20 lessons per week, i.e. 4 periods of 45 minutes per day, from Monday to Friday.
The classes are composed of an average of a dozen students. We propose courses from the beginner level to advanced French. An entry test carried out at the time of the registration makes it possible to integrate a class during the year (except for beginners), according to the student’s level.
The progression of the courses is based on a textbook common to the initial and intermediate levels, which makes the student mobility between the different classes easier. Activities targeted on phonetics, vocabulary, grammar, orthography and conjugation complete the learning.
The teachers also use authentic documents, such as press articles, literary texts, films, songs or radio extracts on current events suitable for arousing debates and exchanges of personal points of view. Thus, we take advantage of the richness brought by the blend of the various cultures we meet in a French class; with the objective of encouraging the interactions between students and making the course lively and dynamic.
Mastering a language is first of all a matter of being able to communicate in this language. This is the reason why our teachers give priority to the communicative approach. We consider the teaching of French as a tool serving the students’ needs for being integrated. Therefore, we attach a special importance to all the culture-related aspects: we regularly organize outings in the city of Geneva, visits of museums or evenings out to the theater !
