Our quality policy

Accessibility of our school: an optimal geographic location

The Alliance Française Strasbourg Europe is located in the immediate vicinity of the picturesque Petite France district and within 7 minutes walking distance from the central train station.
A bus stop is right in front of the building, and a tram stop within 4 minutes walking distance also provides quick access to the entire city of Strasbourg.

Our Goal

As your training partner for French language, we can help improve the oral and written French skills of your students with the aim of improving and facilitating professional integration.

Our Quality Approach

All our training courses follow the recommendations of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the Council of Europe (CEFR).
This reference to language teaching is used at an international level and enables all students to clarify their progress and thus helps to better target their needs.

The “Label Quality FLE”

Our school stands for quality teaching; the Alliance Française has obtained the full marks in all categories at the renewal of the quality label in 2013.
This award is given by an inter-ministerial Commission (Ministry of Education, Cultural Affairs and Foreign Affairs).

The AFSE’s Learning Approach

Our learning approach is based on a communicative and action-oriented concept, according to linguistic needs of students in an everyday situation, in daily life or at work. In this context, the learning process is task-oriented (writing of an argumentative short report or presenting an oral summary on a particular topic, managing a meeting or leading a team).
This approach encourages oral interaction using linguistic activities. Learners are encouraged to express themselves in the target language during all courses.
Thereafter, written exercises consolidate the applied languages leading to the sustainability of students’ achievements.
So what is learned in the classroom can be directly and immediately reinvested in professional and private life.

Personalized Positioning

A free mandatory placement test will take place before the first lesson.
The oral and written test results allow the assignment of each learner to an optimal learning group where he can improve his skills according to his needs and linguistic objectives.
This placement test is an integral part of our communicative and action-oriented approach.
Beyond the structural linguistic skills, our test also verifies the ability of the learner to transmit coherent oral and written messages in the target language.

Personalized Monitoring and Support

Learners experiencing learning difficulties in the acquisition of certain knowledge or know-how during the course may benefit from educational tutoring in order to gain confidence in language practice. These tutoring sessions are provided by trainee teachers and are mostly short sessions of 45 minutes, mainly within the framework of classroom-based learning, and if necessary also in the form of distance learning (Skype or email for example).
These tutorials are focused on a particular theme or problem.

The Professional Experience of our Teachers

The AFSE has a very experienced team of professionals.
Each instructor adapts to the specific linguistic and socio-cultural needs of the learners who therefore progress rapidly.
Most of our teachers are trained and certified to conduct and correct DELF and TCF exams.
These exams (DELF, TCF) take place at the ASFE.
During course preparation for these exams our teachers can advise the learners on how to successfully pass these exams.
