Description
 
The instruction is based on dialogues taken from everyday life. Students learn the language as it is spoken by native speakers. They take part actively in situational role plays where they discover the nuances of the language, as well as the grammar and vocabulary necessary for both comprehension and oral production. Grammar instruction is presented indirectly in conversation activities and situational role plays.
Our small groups (3 to 7 students) allow students to participate actively and ensure personalized attention.
Also, the Caf�linguistique is included for free to allow more practice and exposure to the real language, as spoken by native speakers from here and abroad.
