Course description

The French standard course focuses on the four fundamental skills recommended by the CEFRL (Common European Framework of reference): spoken and written French as well as listening and reading comprehension. Learning is based on communication and exploring the grammatical, lexical and phonetic subtleties of the language. Learning French in Montpellier as part of a French immersion program gives you the opportunity to soak up the French “art de vivre” and get familiar with cultural heritage and gastronomy.

In our French school in Montpellier, the aims of the programs are determined so that you can improve effectively according to the skills of each level. Teachers use both authentic documents and multimedia resources so as to vary their approach and encourage students to become more creative and particularly capable of communicating in French at all times.

Whereas the French standard classes improve French language skills, small group classes (max. 5 students) for Teacher training are essential for giving you the time to think about your own work as a French Teacher. The classes show you more ways of teaching in French and encourage innovative strategies both for thinking up your lesson, teaching it and managing the group. This French teaching program changes Teachers’ daily routines and gives them the chance to sink into a French way of life; something they will be able to share with their students when returning to their classroom.

This is an ideal formula for improving as a French Teacher because you will be able to pass on your enthusiasm and motivation to your students when returning to the classroom after the course.

*In high season the timetable can change

Who this course is for

The standard French course for adults together combined with our mini group classes for Teacher training is ideal for French Teachers who have a level of at least B1 and who aim to study the difficulties of the language in more detail so as to add to their teaching methods.

This residential course formula guarantees that the Teacher will brush up both linguistic and pedagogical skills as well as learn more about French civilisation and culture. To encourage constructive dialogue, there are never more than 10 students in any one group which makes speaking easier. Mini group for Teacher training is done on a one to one basis giving you the opportunity to get all the answers to your very personal and even professional questions. Moreover, our French school is located in the very heart of Montpellier which means you will constantly be plunged into a Mediterranean atmosphere so that you can soak up French culture.

The Standard French course not only helps you to acquire special skills but also gives you the chance to see things from a student’s perspective. As you watch the way we set up and use our activities during classes, you will automatically think about the way in which you yourself manage your classes. You will be able to learn in real life situations. Small group classes for Teacher training have a meta cognitive dimension which encourages you to think about your own work as a Teacher.
