French & Wine and Terroir
Program

Bordeaux

If the words Medoc, Saint-Émilion, Merlot or Sauvignon make you shiver with pleasure, this program is made for you!

Bordeaux is quite simply the leading wine region in the world with 118,000 ha of vines, bordering the Atlantic. It produces half of all the great French wines. Indeed the French vineyard produces 3240 different wines for 1313 different denominations (46 only in the Bordeaux Region) in 80 departments and 16 major vineyards.

Lyon

As Léon Daudet says, “Lyon is a city watered by three great rivers: the Rhône, the Saône and the Beaujolais”.

Lyon is surrounded by three great vineyards: Beaujolais, Coteaux du Lyonnais and Coteaux du Rhône, which is nothing but the second largest vineyard in France. Red wine, white or rosé wine, the region will not leave your palate indifferent.

our pedagogy

our objectives

In order to form homogeneous classes, International House Bordeaux / Lyon 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.
