our pedagogy

our objectives

The objective of the course is to improve oral and written communication, to strengthen vocabulary and fundamental grammatical points, to develop knowledge of French culture and civilization and to express oneself with ease and fluidity in different situations.

During their teaching, professors will approach the four areas of competence of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference), namely: oral expression and comprehension and written expression and comprehension.

The content developed has an action-oriented approach with many activities created in line with the audience and the level of the groups, thus promoting oral expression while laying down the foundations of the written word.

The teaching team will run attractive, pleasant and enjoyable lessons through fun didactic activities, such as group, group or pair activities within their class, and interactions with other level groups during events. pedagogical related to school life.

the host companies

“We welcomed for the third time an intern sent by Les ateliers FL . The interns have each come from different backgrounds , for various lengths of time and had individual profiles , however,
the experience shared with each of them has all been very satisfying.

The work place of an international hotel is perfectly adapted to the kind of professional experience for the students wishing to develop their language skills. Depending on the length of the internship, we were able to adapt to personalized careers with the agreement and the support of the Les ateliers FL teams. Each intern was able to integrate itself and bring their personnal touch to our team. 

We hope to keep on welcoming new interns through this programme and make our partnership grow in the coming years.”

Director of a hotel residence in Paris.

Les ateliers FL teams have been able to offer us regular candidacies of serious, motivated and pleasant people, according to our needs.

We have concretized hiring of seasonal employees. These multilingual students were able to use their language skills in contact with our international clientele.

This professional immersion within our teams allowed them in return to develop their practice of French, while benefiting from a significant professional experience in the sectors of tourism and / or restaurant sector.

Fully satisfied with this partnership with France Langue, we wish to continue and develop our relations, in the framework of future recruitments just as qualitative. “

Recruitement Manager of a touristic boat company

I have met Victoria from Les ateliers FL more than a year ago and she presented me the organization. We have talked about the mutual benefits that we could find in this partnership.

We are hiring for determined periods young people wishing to learn French. We are proposing different posts according to our needs and to the student’s level and experience, especially in catering or reception. They are integrated to our teams and improve quickly. 

The students love to get rewarding tasks in terms of customer experience and that they are able to practice French in a workplace.

This allowed us to meet great people very motivated and interested in the hotel and hospitality industry.

Every time we have temporary needs, I get in touch with France Langue to see if they have new students available.”

We have welcomed dozens of students who have all been very well selected and are very happy to work with us in both a French and cosmopolitan atmosphere.”
