Teaching Approach

Methodology.

Our profession:

We teach you how to learn or improve French language skills, from a linguistic, cultural and/or professional point of view.

Our pedagogical approach:

Our educational method, recommended by the Common European Framework of Reference (CECR), combines both the communicative and “actional” approach, that is actions monitored both by teachers and participants.

Our aim is to:

Give you the means to be autonomous in French, that is use the six communication competences (oral and written comprehension, oral and written production and interaction). But you can focus on one competence in particular.

Help you become interactive with French people: that is speak with them on meetings, parties or daily situations (when you buy bread or a train ticket or order in a restaurant, buy goods, contact the Office of Tourism about a trip, open a phone line, etc…).

Coach you in true to life situations (restaurant, bakery, supermarket, etc..).

In addition, we can prepare the DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française), TEF (Test d’évaluation de français) and TCF (Test de connaissance du français) exams, within the General French Course.

Within Specific French courses, we work on the six communication competences specific to your job and in accordance with your position. We aim at preparing you to work with French Natives or Francophones, that is to be able to introduce your company and products, to negotiate contracts, to inform and advise a client, make reservations, maintain diplomatic relations, examine patients, etc..

Your methodology:

You must consider yourself not only as a learner within the strict educational framework of our course but also as a social actor in true to life activities organized out of class.

Your/Our improvement

Our teaching strategies depend on your progress.

Jérôme, is an excellent teacher. I have already had 3 lessons with him and booked the fourth one. He is full of patience and motivates you to do your best. He never tells me a word in English which makes me try harder and in the end I have feeling that I am good even though I might not. But,it makes me happy and makes me trying even harder. I believe that Jérôme is the great discovery and I am happy I've come across him on this website.

I had a wonderful first lesson today. we focused on basic conversational skills such as Talking about yourself and family. Jerome has a friendly approach and help to correct as we speak which is really helpful.

A fabulous lesson discussing the geology of the Pyrenees at a level suitable for my French language ability. I really enjoyed it, and I'm already looking forward to the next lesson. Thank you and well done Jérôme.
