Monitoring and feedback

 We regularly carry out tests to assess your progress in grammar, vocabulary, writing, oral and written comprehension skills and make sure that you are achieving excellent linguistic integration. The Au-Pair student is also required to study on their own for one to two hours a week, in order for them to efficiently assimilate the French language.

Objectives

Develop your knowledge of French through improving your language skills
Express yourself and comprehend in everyday situations
Give participants access to suitable and easy-to-use language references
Give participants the opportunity to self-assess their progress and pass the appropriate eaxams

Methodology

We offer a structured and dynamic teaching approach with motivating and practical objectives. It is expected the Au-Pair student should provide additional self-study to reach their goals and objectives.

DELF or DALFexam preparation is also included in the program.

The DELF and DALF are diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to prove the French language skills of non-French candidates. The DELF and DALF are official diplomas that are widely recognized in the world and which allow to study, work and immigrate into French-speaking countries.
