our pedagogy

our objectives

Our pedagogical project is based on the personalization of the courses and the individual support of the students. France Langue has developed a pedagogy with adapted rhythms, progressions and activities so that each student can achieve the level of French according to the CEFR.

In class, the approach is always communicative and action-oriented. The goal of the teacher is to help you progress in French so that you are comfortable everyday in the professional world or at university. The action perspective translates into the development of language skills through the accomplishment of “tasks” such as writing an e-mail (written production), answering a simple question (oral expression), taking notes in class (listening comprehension), read a press article (written comprehension), talk about one’s tastes (vocabulary), …

The teacher gives everyone a longer speaking time thanks to limited groups of 12 students. Classes are international and exclusively in French to encourage conversation and exchange.

To ensure a constant progress and successful completion of your exam, you will be evaluated regularly in class and personalized support will be offered in the form of a free 30-minute tutoring with a teacher. It is necessary to remember that the success of a DELF or DALF exam implies a great involvement in your studies, a constant classroom presence and personal work outside of class.

The teachers of France Langue are graduated of the university and of French mother tongue. They are also qualified and trained in the DELF and DALF events and can bring you all their experience and expertise to help you pass your exam.

During your preparation program, you will be trained to take the exam in real conditions. You will receive a personalized correction of the test and we will give you keys and tips to pass your exam.
