* Study French language in France, Bordeaux:
20 Lessons per week, from 2 weeks to 9 Months. It is aimed at students wishing to improve their linguistic competences in depth. Based on the 4 CECR disciplines (oral and written expression - oral and written production), our courses will allow you to acquire long-term knowledge in the use of the French language in situations of communication where grammatical and lexical aspects mix closely to speech.
The communicative approach of our teaching methods linked to inter cultural exchanges leads to firm and permanent memorization of acquired knowledge/competences through the affective aspect of inter-participation. And so, throughout the duration of the course, the speed of learning leads the students towards a consolidation of their knowledge and allows real ease in everyday use of the language. The linguistic tools acquired by the end of the course will allow the students to talk debate or argue in French in a manner sufficiently precise to convince the French person they are talking to.
