French class

Beginner level

I propose an intercultural approach, a clear and progressive pedagogy, a spiral progression.

For the beginner course, I am interested in creating a real interest for French society and the French-speaking world to allow the learner to develop a know-how and social skills essential to any successful communication. My work supports are varied and close to everyday life and allow him to interact. The proposed tasks are meant to be "authentic" (personal, public, professional, educational) The strategies employed will gradually bring you to autonomy.

Intermediate level

As at the beginner level, the tasks apply to different areas (personal, public, professional, educational, etc.) in order to encourage learners' motivation and involvement. The activities proposed aim to concretely verify the understanding of the supports thanks to tasks close to those of the life: to read to orient oneself, to inform and discuss, to locate indices and to make deductions, to listen to note a message, complete a document, respond to concrete needs or react. In the same way, the activities of expression (oral, written) are the reflection of an authentic communication. The parameters of the communication are thus clearly defined: interlocutors, context, channel, finality . The following examples, taken from the lessons, illustrate this action.

Advanced level

Here the learner understands a large range of long and demanding texts, he grasps implicit meanings. He can express himself spontaneously and fluently without too much searching for his words. We propose to address topics related to daily life, work and business:

  1. Topical topics to develop your opinion in a structured way.
  2. Explain policies, procedures, regulations.
  3. Descriptions featuring complex and abstract elements.
  4. Situations that require persuading, negotiating and arguing.
  5. Revise grammatical notions such as times, modes, time matches.
  6. Pronunciation, rhythm and intonation.
  7. etc.
