- We evaluate all of our students before enrolling them on a course to ensure that everyone is placed in a group of a suitable level. We also like to discuss students’ objectives for their course to ensure that everyone is placed on a course that suits their aims in French language learning.
All of our programs are tailor-made to the needs of the individual classes and are relevant to their level and objectives. We always include plenty of conversational activities and our focus is on speaking and listening skills and making conversational activities a priority. Our teachers enjoy keeping up to date with all the latest ideas in education and are constantly developing new fun lessons to ensure that students progress as much as possible while enjoying their learning with Alpine French School.
