Standard French Course

Standard French Course

The Standard French Course offers 22 lessons per week (20 General lessons + 2 open workshops).

You will work on your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in small groups.

In the class, the learning is task-based, following the criteria established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The teachers use communicative methods.

Various skills will be trained during the lessons: there will be a focus on your oral and written understanding of the French language as well as on your oral and written expression. Moreover, you will use everyday French (work, studies, leisure...) through diverse sources, from newspapers to songs.
