Les ateliers FL has come up with a specific Super Intensive program, mixing 26 lessons per week of language course + 4 lessons of “Real Practice of the language”.
We will teach you the language and provide you with a full schedule for you to meet French people and to discover France and all aspects of its culture.

Our program is open from level A2. It starts every Monday for the duration of 1 or 2 weeks.

General French lessons
20 lessons per week

Les ateliers FL weekly courses consist of 20 lessons of 45 minutes spread over the whole week, in the morning or in the afternoon from Monday to Friday …

When you register, you complete a written test online to evaluate your level in French. Upon arrival on your first day at Les ateliers FL, your level will be further assessed with an oral test taken by a teacher or an educational advisor. You will then be placed in a class with students of the same level.

There is a small number of 12 international students per class. It allows longer speaking time for everyone and enables exchanges and conversations in class. This is the perfect opportunity to create strong links with students from all around the world.

In class, the only language used is French for immediate and total immersion.

General French workshops :
6 lessons per week

In addition to the 20 lessons of general French, you take part in 3 workshops of 1h30 (= 6 lessons) on different themes (oral, written, vocabulary, civilisation, etc.).

These workshops allow you to have an in-depth approach to a specific point of French, the French people or France. Even if the emphasis is on a particular linguistic skill (oral comprehension, written production, etc.), grammar is never far away and will be seen and reviewed more or less explicitly.

These workshops also allow you to enrich your knowledge of French culture.

4 lessons per week

Every day, the student will need to put into practice their language skills based on their French level. These scenarios will force the student to use the French
language in real life. A variety of situations is created :

  • The Bistrot: Asking a coffee at the Bistrot, and learn more about how to do it, the variety of services/products on site, etc.
  • At the market: Do the shopping at one or different grocery stores and follow an easy recipe to prepare diner.
  • Museum: How to access, the colour and art vocabulary, the guide speech.
  • Move around in the city: Follow some guidelines and use the public transportation to arrive to the defined destination.
  • And much more…

All those real-life-situation student’s reports will be shared during the class and the student will receive the corrections on a separate sheet.

During the stay, the students can participate on extra cultural activities that are not included on the program pricelist or calendar (Ex: Wine tasting, Cooking
classes, exchange language events and much more!).

On top of those 30 lessons, the students can participate to the extra Online Workshops for free : 2 lessons of virtual guided tour + 2 lessons of thematic meeting.

our pedagogy

nos objectifs

At Les ateliers FL , our main concern is helping you progress in French so that you are independent on a daily basis. Our goal is to teach you to speak, read, understand and write in French. Our pedagogy style teaching, based on a communicative and action-oriented approach, guides you to carry out “tasks” in the classroom that you can immediately re-use once you walk out the door: order a dish in a restaurant, buy a French baguette, read a metro plan, or ask for information are some examples.

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.
