Beginner level

In our beginners’ French for business course, we promote a practical approach to provide learners with the skills to perform professional tasks in French, from very early on in their learning. We also work with the learners to develop strategies to help them understand and use the language when they need to. In order to perform these professional tasks, learners are not only equipped with linguistic tools (grammar, sentence structure, vocabulary) but also work on sociocultural elements. This cultural awareness is essential to better communicate with French-speaking counterparts. Our training includes self-assessments and assessments to provide feedback to the learners and to the trainer. These assessments are task-oriented and fully prepare learners for the DELF A1 Professional exam, an internationally recognised French accreditation.  

Intermediate level

At this level, you learn how to present a point of view and defend your ideas. The course focuses on precise work situations such as reporting during a meeting, planning an event, dealing with problems.

Advanced level

At this level, you develop your French language proficiency according to your professional needs. The teacher works according to the professional tasks you need to be able to perform. You can choose to work either on your professional writing skills, your speaking skills, or both.
