Practical information for all our online courses

Before the lesson

The week before the course begins, students will complete our "Digital Assessment Test", as well as a "Student Questionnaire" in order to better identify their needs and expectations.
The student must send us these documents no later than by 2:00 pm on Thursday so that they can join the course on Monday morning. In case of delay in sending these documents, the course can only start on Tuesday for this particular student.

Test & Questionnaire

Along with the Test and the Questionnaire, the student receives a "Guide for the student in e-learning" which explains how the sessions take place and how to quickly handle the ZOOM distance learning software.
It is imperative that the student becomes familiar with the handling of the software by following the explanations in the Guide and the recommended tutorial.


​Once the level of the student has been determined, the educational director places the student in the appropriate group under the guidance of a professor. This structure is the most appropriate educational approach of allocation of students into a program based on the profile of their group as well as the duration of learning.

During the first lesson

The professor will invite students to download our Grammar Guide from the digital platform of our monthly magazine « Le Français et Vous ».
