The intensive French summer course for adults helps learners to communicate effectively on a daily basis whilst practising the 4 skills recommended by the CECRL (European Framework of reference for languages). Varying activities means that the teaching approach alternates between focusing on speaking or writing and reading or listening comprehension. The Standard French summer course ensures that the grammar basics are consolidated and that vocabulary and phonetics are improved during our French immersion programs.
The French intensive course for adults puts emphasis on speaking practice and the importance of learning about French civilisation so as to better understand the French people, their way of life as well as their way of thinking. Debates, role plays and presentations are used extensively so that students can adapt to different everyday situations where formal French may be needed.
Teachers organise their residential summer French courses according to language programs that are carefully prepared by our French school in France. The courses are tailored not only to suit each French level but also each type of French summer course so as to better meet students’ needs, which very often differ from one student to another in each French language course. The teaching material used is varied to suit mixed needs and the use of authentic documents is encouraged so as to help students integrate themselves into French daily life.
The French immersion summer programs for adults in Montpellier have quite a considerable advantage: the sun! You get the chance to learn French in France to improve your French language skills but also take time to enjoy a complete change of scenery on the Mediterranean coast. Our summer language stays are not just about learning French, but they give you the chance to soak up the French “art de vivre”!
