A tailor-made pedagogical program

Les ateliers FL private courses are structured around 6 key steps:

When you register, we will ask you to complete two elements that are very important to your teacher :

  • a level test to determine your French level
  • a survey where you tell us your French background and your needs and goals for the course.

These two elements will be the core of the first lesson prepared by your teacher. However, the rest of the pedagogical program will be set after the first class during which the teacher will evaluate your oral skills.

When you are done with your first private lesson and taking into account your level and the numbers of lessons booked, your teacher will be able to tell you whether your objectives to reach are realistic or not.

Whatever your needs, we will help you being orally at ease in your daily French-speaking life, succeeding in your French-speaking work career, or successfuly take French exams.

Our goal is your success and satisfaction and that is why we will give you the advice to define reachable goals in a given time.

The teacher will use many different work materials during the class. They are always playful and linked to daily life, according to your tastes, your hobbies or current news (press articles, videos, emails, ads, songs…). You can bring your own personal documents so that the lesson will match even more with your expectations (work emails, resume, work related documents, minutes, …)

A private course is the perfect moment to practice your professional French!

During a private class, it is essential to stay motivated to improve constantly. The private lessons need to be entertaining so that you are learning without even noticing it which leads to a better acquisition of the language.

The teacher’s work is to make you aware of your weaknesses that may be unknown or underestimated.

If you have a  lot of weaknesses, they will be worked on from the most to the least important. Our priority is to always make sure you are able to give a clear, precise message.

In order to not affect your motivation and your oral production, you won’t be interrupted every time you make a mistake, your teachers will correct only the essential elements of your speech. As the classes go by, a deeper correction will be proposed, the goal of it being always to improve the fluency of your oral exchanges and interactions with French or French-speaking people.

The teacher might ask you to work in your own outside of the classroom : reading, studying grammar points, doing excercices, researching vocabulary… It is important to make the most of your time spent with your teacher to interact orally with them, to ask them questions and to practice your French.

As the weeks go by, your self-confidence will grow, you will start using new vocabulary, you will have a more precise pronounciation and syntax, and you will be more at ease and more fluent when speaking with others in French. Your teacher will stop you less and less for corrections and you will be able to exchange and interact more spontaneously.

You will also have the opportunity to test your written comprehension and expression during written exams that we can propose to you during your lessons.

When you are finished with your course, you will be able to recognize your achievements, and often exceed your goals. Beyond your linguistic expectations, you will acquire a know-how-to-be à la française and you will be at ease in a wide range of communicative situations.

Writing, reading, understanding and interacting in French will no more be difficult. You will love to learn French and you will keep on improving thanks to your teacher’s tips!

You have a doubt about your French level ?

This quick recreational test is to determine your level of French in one look. Please note this is not the official French test. When registering, you will need to do an other more complete test and an oral interview with a teacher to define more precisely your level and your linguistic goals.
