Students are in a mixed class with other students, but this course differs from others insofar as it incorporates DELF preparation.
Mornings are spent in general French classes, which include writing and speaking activities. Work is focussed on learning grammar skills for the chosen level, but also on improving written and spoken production. Activities also include text and audio document comprehension. Learning is both varied and fun and is based on materials that prompt communication.
Tuesday to Friday from 2 to 4 p.m.
The afternoon timetable is for the 30-class course and applies also to other students registered in the school.
Afternoon classes place a particular focus on spoken production and listening comprehension skills. Moreover, students will be familiarized with culture and life in France.
Course content also includes role-play, interactive classroom activities, as well as exchanging points of view on the basis of authentic documents.

When this school reaches maximum capacity, students can take their French courses at our other school, Le Port – a small building with eight classrooms in an old fisherman’s house at the far end of the marina.
Students can stay in our Aragon residence, which is close to the town center, or with host families selected by the school.
The Aragon residence is located a 15-minute walk from the school and offers fully renovated, comfortable studios in a quiet area close to the town centre and the beaches.
It is also home to the school’s student community, so it is a great place to meet people and speak French.
