From Beginner to Advanced Speaker

If you are a beginner, your progress will be very simple to follow. We offer all proficiency levels with a progression through the A1 - A2 - B1 system to become an "Independent User." This means you will be able to manage most language situations. For each of these steps, there are certain skills you will need to master in regards to your oral and written abilities (expression and comprehension).

Once you pass the B1 level, you will be an advanced user. At the next level, the B2 classes, the learning is a bit different. You are ready to discover the subtleties of the language and get trained to talk and write with fewer mistakes. For that purpose, it’s essential to talk a lot but also go more in depth into the rules of grammar.

If you already know some French, you can start at any level corresponding to your skills.

Along your French journey, you may want to reinforce your skills or do specialized classes or workshops. Every session we planned workshops to work on grammar, oral understanding, and technical vocabulary.

Class size and individual attention

No more than 6 people, which is especially important for beginners. Many schools have 12 or more in beginner courses, depriving especially those that need it most of the special attention they should be receiving.
The success of every student is very important to us. We prepare tailor made lessons to make sure every one progresses. We give you individual advice, homework to reinforce your skills that we take time to correct at home, and grammar sheets if necessary.

Our Teachers

"We are not only native speakers, we are also French teachers!"
- All our teachers have at least a bachelor's degree, or a master's or a PHD.
- They studied in French, which makes it our main proficient language.
- They are experienced with teaching, and especially how to teach a language.
- They are passionate about their work.

Curriculum

We will immerse you in the language to ensure rapid progress, working with authentic materials, reproducing real conversation. Our instruction follows the “actional” or "task-based" method. What is the “actional” method? It’s situation-based learning, which is how we learned our native language. It’s learning by solving problems or resolving tasks, such as: shopping, finding your way somewhere, making appointments, making small talk etc. Learning in real language situations is how kids learn a language naturally. Your memory functions better because it is linked to an experience and a task that you achieved.

Compare this to learning a language with flash cards or computer methods -- simply repeating words and sentences out of context, with no real communicative or interactive experience. This kind of knowledge is stored in the cognitive memory but is not in the “procedural” memory, which means it’s going to be forgotten.

The books we use, and our support materials (videos, articles, etc...) are chosen according to the CEFR.
The advantages for you: we provide you with clear learning objectives as described in this framework, standard levels and results, standardized evaluations. All of this means better recognition of your achievements.
