au pair

We offer general French classes specially designed for au pair students. They divided in three trimesters per year (from September to June). The hours are planned specifically to fit the schedule of the au pairs, no classes on Wednesday or during public school breaks. These classes consist of 6 or 8 lessons of 45 minutes per week, depending on the school of your choosing. These flexible hours are specifically adapted to the au pair lifestyle and will allow you to fulfil your professional duties while keeping some free time for yourself and to fully experience your life in France. Personal implication and autonomy are required for these programs since a lot of the learning has to be done through homework. The goal of the au pair courses is your long-term progress, they offer a real personalized monitoring throughout the trimester(s). It is a program of three months minimum in which you will study gradually in a closed group composed of maximum 18 students. To note In order to succeed in your studies, personal work is expected (approximately 4 hours per week). In addition if you wish to receive a certificate of end of session delivered by Les ateliers FL mentioning the number of hours of lessons followed and the level reached, we will ask you for a regular presence and a strong participation in class.

Our specific pedagogy
for au pair

Our objectives


How are French classes composed?

The students wishing to register for an au pair course in our school will start with two tests, a written test online followed by a speaking test upon your arrival at the school with our teaching staff. This will allow the school to place you in the class best corresponding to your level. The classes are generally closed groups allowing you to develop a feeling of camaraderie and mutual support with your classmates throughout the trimester. It is not rare to see beautiful friendships begin within the walls of our schools! The au pair classes are usually composed exclusively of au pair students working with French families, providing you with the opportunity to get to know people who share the same adventure, the same goals and needs as you.

Our innovative methodology

Cooperative Language Learning is based on the practice of the language in real-life situations, using many different classroom environments. (In the classroom, outside of the class, on the FL Online platform, on the Mooc offered by FL).
The use of all the teaching technologies and methodologies available creates a complete experience with a full support for the learner.
