Course description

The long-term intensive French course for adults is our best French course formula if you want to study French in France for a year or for a stay of more than 20 weeks, that is perfect for improving your language skills and integrating into French society.

The intensive French course is essential for guiding you as you learn French in France by concentrating on the four main skills recommended by the CEFRL (Common European Framework of Reference for languages): reading and listening comprehension together with spoken and written skills. The intensive French course also covers all general language needs and focuses on grammar, vocabulary and phonetics. All of this contributes to better fluency, which helps you to use the language daily and become more familiar with French culture.

At our French school in Montpellier we are careful to design French learning programs so that they suit each level and every type of class. In this way, you can learn more and improve faster thanks to developing better communication skills. For faster integration into French society, you are encouraged to be more open minded for a better understanding of French culture.

Presentations, debates, role plays are examples of the exercises used in our French classes to prepare you for everyday communication outside of our school. Teaching material is varied with mostly authentic source documents and extracts from videos, adverts, newspapers or from the internet. When you learn French in Montpellier, you get to see more than just study manuals or documents (both inside and outside of our French immersion school) because everything around you will be a means of learning the French language.

Our long-term intensive French language course for adults ensures regular and serious follow-up throughout your language stay in France. This residential French course has definite objectives to reach and the learning process is elaborated to measure progress and make sure students remain motivated.
