The general “French as a foreign language” courses (FLE) are suitable for students of all levels (from beginners to advanced). Each course aims to achieve a goal which corresponds to the daily needs on a professional and personal level. The student will thus develop useful skills, for example, our students can learn how to order at a restaurant or learn how to write a covering letter for a job search.



In these courses, each student progresses at the same time as his peers under the guidance of a teacher, this is mostly based on a textbook and workbook. The group is an advantage for learning, what our students have learned can in fact be applied immediately in a communicative and social space.



The AFSE has developed for every level a detailed study program (with pragmatic and sociolinguistic objectives), which corresponds to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). In general, a unit lasts ten hours. Each session (a session lasts 4 weeks) provides a coherent program with particular sociolinguistic goals. After the placement test the student learns in a group that corresponds to his level and is part of the overall program A1, A2, B1 or B2 or C1.

Extensive Course : General French 2019

2019 PROGRAM


16 hours of General French
4 week session with 4hours/week
Tuesday and Thursday,
from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
 

Extensive Course : General French 2019

These night courses  (16 hours a month) correspond to two 2-hours French classes on a weekly basis on Tuesdays and Thursday nights from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

This offer gives an ideal schedule for students engaged in a daily professional activity at a rythm adapted to their availabilities.


The group-work brings the study material directly in a communicative and social space.

Night courses are oriented towards the needs of a professional public, which our teachers know very well and have great experience with: the learning orientation is very practical and the communicative and actional approach is even more priviledged than in our other classes; language activities are mainly oriented towards oral abilities (expression and comprehension) to enable our students to reuse the language directly and quickly in their daily professional and personal activities. The class follows the evolution of general courses. Projects on written skills (comprehension and expression) will generate homework, which will be corrected in class. 

These extensive night courses offer an ideal schedule for people engaged in a daily professional or personal activity.  Nevertheless, this choice involves strong personal work for the development of written skills.

Students will learn and practice together in their group the oral and written expression for everyday situations and their professional life. As part of a communicative teaching method, the teacher adapts rythm and content to the needs of the students.

All skills (oral and written comprehension and expression) are activated and thereby all linguistic activities are used.

The intensity (4h/ day) allows fast improvements. Everyday, the teacher reuses recently adquired skills and new elements, thus offering a progressive work, adapted to the group. 

The teacher makes an evaluation at the beginning of the session, and takes in account students objectives and preferences in order to build a program and a progression.

This schedule allows a work in the morning and leaves the remaining of the day free for cultural activities, for french langage practice. Intensive courses can be completed with workshops in grammar, phonetics, written or oral practice.
