The educational approach of this programme is based on communication in French between the students.
The programme covers all language skills: written and oral comprehension, written and oral expression as well as phonetics, lexicon and grammar.
Educational activities are organised into individual tasks and work in groups or in pairs. The exercises could be in the form of debates, discussions, role plays or listening and written work.
Participants are encouraged to share their experiences in a friendly and caring atmosphere.
During the morning French lessons, a subject is introduced at the start of the week.
Afternoon classes allow students to acquire key skills by sharing their knowledge and experiences related to cultural topics.
Participants are accompanied by their teachers who encourage them to maximise their progress. Remediation activities can also be offered individually.
