French – Group Lessons

The school ELFE has favoured, over the last 30 years, teaching French in mini-groups, with a maximum of seven participants. Two teachers take it in turns to teach the group. These small groups facilitate effective teaching and encourage much spoken practice.

A French text book, relevant to your level, is supplied at the beginning of the course. The teachers, all university graduates and holders of a qualification for teaching French as a Foreign Language, are trained in different educational approaches and have much experience in teaching French to adults. To enable the students to progress quickly, an interactive and communicative method is used, using various materials that are continuously renewed.

A certificate with the level the student has attained is awarded to participants at the end of their stay. An evaluation questionnaire allows students to give feedback on how they feel the lessons and activities went and on the quality of the accommodation. Students are able to evaluate their level using the CEFRL framework (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
