French courses for beginners presentation

The French course for beginners is designed for people willing to learn the basics of French language. Wether you are a complete beginner in French or you have limited knowledge in it, this interactive course, on site with other students, gives you the essential tools to communicate with confidence in French.


Throughout your progress, your teacher will set up activities of exchange, reflection or comprehension to allow you to improve your oral and written skills. Our approach is based on learning French through tasks, recommended by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Here is our pedagogical progression as an indication. 

At any time, you can ask for an appointment with the Pedagogical Manager for a skills assessment. In case of difficulties, learning assistance is offered.

At the end of the course, an evaluation will allow us to measure the progress and evaluate the students’ skills according to the scale of levels defined by the European Framework of Reference for Languages. A level certificate will be issued at the end of the course. 

Registration fees: 80€

The course material and access to our digital platform Apolearn are included in the registration fee.
