Adults courses – summer 2019

Following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, we offer all levels (from A1 to C2) of French group courses and conversation classes.

We work in small groups (4 to 8 people max). It is not a traditional class setting, you will work in duos or trios to practice real-life situations and get the most out of your time. Our courses are being given by native French speakers, where possible in French, from the beginners’ courses onward. This approach enables students to learn the language as quickly and efficiently as possible.
