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 walking distance to the central train station (7 minutes). A bus stop is right at the entrance of the building. A tram stop (walking distance: 2 minutes) also allows you to reach quickly and comfortably the entire city of Strasbourg.
As your training partner for French language, we improve oral and written language skills of your students with the aim of improving professional integration.
Our quality concept:
All our training courses follow the recommendations of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEF). This recognized teaching framework is used at an international level and enables all students to clarify their progress and thus helps to identify their needs.
The quality label "Qualité Fle":
Our school stands for quality teaching; the Alliance Française has obtained the top grade in all categories at the renewal of the quality label in 2013. This award is given by an inter-ministerial Commission (Ministries of Education, Cultural Affairs and Foreign Affairs).
The pedagogical approach of AFSE:
Our teaching concept is based on a communicative and action-oriented approach, according to linguistic needs of students in an everyday situation, in private life or at work. In this context, the learning process is tasks oriented (writing 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 thanks to linguistic activities. Learners are fostered to express themselves in the target language during all courses. Thereafter, written exercises consolidate the applied languages which lead to a long-lasting assimilation of student achievements.
The new skills learned in class can be immediately and directly used in professional and private life.
A free mandatory placement test will take place before the first course. The oral and written test results allow assignment of each learner in an optimal learning group where he can improve his skills according to his needs and linguistic goals. This placement test is an integral part of our communicative and active methodology. Beyond the structural linguistic skills, our test also checks the ability of the learner to express coherent oral and written messages in the target language.
Individual guidance and support
Learners who have some learning difficulties during the course may be offered the possibility of extra tutoring sessions in order to gain confidence while using the language. 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 refresher courses are focused on a particular topic or a precise task.
The professional experience of our teachers
The educational AFSE team is very experienced with professionals. Each instructor adapts to specific linguistic and socio-cultural needs of the learners who therefore progress rapidly. Most of our teachers have the qualification to give national exams and their corrections. These exams (DELF, TCF) take place at the ASFE. During the lessons our teachers can advise the learners in order to successfully pass these exams.
