FL Online School

For a few years now, the education and technical team from Les ateliers FL have been developing an online school, where students in France can participate in classes together, while also including students from all over the world who are not able to travel or who want to start their french learning before they arrive!

In March 2020, FL Online School opened their doors virtually in order to offer students customized workshops, courses, technology and education as the new “normal”.

Our virtual school, FL Online uses Microsoft 365 (Office, Teams, OneNote, Stream). Adapted to the current society and to new technology, our method of online learning consists of courses, specialised and themed workshops, virtual meetings with french people and visits to parts of big cities in France.

Learn French before your Arrival

You can start your french learning before your arrival in France. Thanks to FL online courses, you can prepare for your arrival by revising and progressing your French in order to achieve a higher level in time for your arrival. The FL online courses also allow you to meet the educational team, the teachers, as well as your future classmates. Something to reassure and give you confidence before stepping out into the french world.

Courses “à la carte” and a Personalised Follow-up

By choosing to take courses online allows you to follow at your own pace.
Don’t lose more time signing up to a school when you can take FL online courses from your home or actually, wherever you want. We offer a range of courses more or less intensive to cater to both your needs and limitations.

Help with new technology; you will be accompanied by your teacher and by the educational team to ensure that no student loses their want to learn or their motivation. The classes are limited to 12 students to allow you to regularly participate in learning projects while also giving you reasonable timeframes. Evaluations will also take place for us to follow the progress of your French level.

Advantages of Online School

The FL Online Community

Outside of your course, you will have access to our online school 24/7. You can exchange with students from all around the world in private conversations or groups conversations on  various topics such as cooking, sport, art and literature, travelling, France and its culture.

The animators will give you ideas, propositions or suggestions enabling you to discover these topics deeper, all in french (articles, virtual expositions, cooking recipes, films, music, etc…). You can then share your experiences, photos or memories in the chat.

Les ateliers FL Online Workshops

Multiple times a week, workshops are offered over a range of different times. The workshops are sold individually and have different cultural themes such as literature, cinema, cooking, science. Language workshops are also available such as grammar, conversation or professional vocabulary.

We offer the experience of meeting someone french during the workshops “Un jour, une rencontre” where you will discover the story and destiny of a french man or woman speaking of their life, story, passion or their professional pathway.

The themed workshops are essentially for enriching your vocabulary, perfecting your oral comprehension and oral expression.

OUR PARTNER Frantastique

After a test to establish your level, you will receive everyday for a duration of one month, one lesson followed by exercises to progress your French.
