The French language courses are conducted solely in French by experienced instructors. All teachers are University graduates and have post-graduate qualifications and experience in teaching French as a foreign language. Most also have other areas of expertise (literature, art, history, etc.). In addition to their academic credentials, teachers are selected for their ability to stimulate students in their studies of French.
The latest direct teaching methods are applied in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere guaranteeing optimum intensity and maximum individuality. It will help the students to develop every aspect of the language skills that they will use both inside and outside the classroom. All students use materials developed by the French school, including textbooks FRANÇAIS LANGUE ETRANGERE 1, 2 and 3. Materials are periodically reviewed to ensure that students have the most suitable and up-to-date books.
A special feature of the school program is the emphasis on conversational French. Students in the intensive courses have either one or two lessons in small conversation groups. Students are grouped by age and mutual interests in addition to their knowledge of French. Being grouped by age and mutual interest means that conversations focus on topics of interest to all.
Students develop their oral fluency, converting passive knowledge into active and confident command through a variety of exercises. Advanced students practice their French in discussions and debates.
