For all ages, at different levels. For all nationalities.
For groups: specialised welcoming centre, personalised welcome, special offers and specific conditions for group leaders.
Before the first lesson the level of each student is confirmed with a test which will allow him to be integrated in a homogenous group-level following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (Cadre Européen Commun de Référence pour les Langues): from the beginner level (A1) to the experienced level (B2/C1). A course of level “absolute beginner” can be established from 5 students.
The lessons take place from Monday to Friday, generally in the morning from Tuesday to Friday and in the afternoon on Monday (so that the students can benefit from visits and excursions over the weekends). Two to three teachers lead in each level group. The number of students per group varies depending on the programmes and the levels.
For general courses, the groups are established with maximum 12 students.
From 1st July to 2rd August 2019 (1 to 5 weeks). Targeted programmes or individual tuitions can also be organised outside this period.
Courses for French teachers are offered at different periods of the year.
