our pedagogy

our objectives

In order to form homogeneous classes, our International House schools have developed an online level test, to be carried out before your arrival.

In addition, an oral test takes place on the first day of classes in order to:

  • validate your oral level
  • check that your level has not changed since the written test
  • know your expectations and needs

Classes accommodate a maximum of 12 students in order to promote exchanges and interactions during the course.

The teacher focuses above all on you, on your language needs to define and plan his course. This methodology implies a significant commitment on your part in your learning of French.

Our methodology is intended to be practical, the main thing for us is to make you independent during your stay in France, that you are able to understand simple messages and that you can respond to them in a relevant way.

In order to best measure your progress and ensure that your learning is effective, we have implemented weekly assessments in all classes.

Your progress is thus measured regularly, and in the event of a dropout, the teacher will be able to refocus his course or offer you personalized tutoring.

At the end of your stay, we will give you a certificate of attendance and participation specifying the number of hours of lessons followed and the level you have reached in French.

our innovative methodology

Cooperative Language Learning is based on the practice of the language in real-life situations, using many different classroom environments.(In the classroom, outside of the class, on the FL Online platform, on the Mooc offered by FL).
The use of all the teaching technologies and methodologies available creates a complete experience with a full support for the learner.
