Institut De Francais, Villefranche:
The INSTITUT DE FRANÇAIS in Villefranche is a reknowned French language school offering the best quality language learning environment in the region.
- Nothing can equal or compare with this intensive "Total Approach" to French, especially when applied in an all-day immersion and under the incentive of small group interaction.
- Our goal is to make learning French in France a rich and memorable experience. That is why at this world famous setting we provide the necessary ingredients for a perfect language lesson!
The method used by this French language school can be aptly called Diversified French Immersion. French immersion per se means that from the outset the student is plunged into the French language without recourse to his or her mother tongue.
In Diversified French Immersion, the student goes through a variety of linguistic activities throughout the day so as to approach spoken French from all angles and in all types of situation ranging from audio-visual class, language lab, games, films, songs, to making up a TV commercial, role playing in everyday or professional situations, the discussion-lunch with a teacher, evening outings with teachers, etc. So that at the end of this intensive, all-encompassing French language course, the student will be able to speak correct French and be readily understood in everyday conversation. Total beginners will be able to say much of what they want to say, simply and correctly.
The key to this fluency is talk and more talk - ONLY IN FRENCH - in varied situations, using and re-using the fundamental vocabulary one needs for everyday conversation. Although the written language is also developed, oral expression is stressed at all times during the day in constant and spontaneous exchanges with the teachers, eliminating translation into the mother tongue. Thus, little by little, the student is able to acquire an instinctive fluency and familiarity with the French language, which is often impossible with the formal and impersonal character of traditional or "just classroom" teaching.
All INSTITUT DE FRANÇAIS teachers are rigorously selected to ensure the highest possible teaching standard, which is the Institut's hallmark. They all hold various university degrees in foreign languages and linguistics. They are all native, accentless French speakers and speak fluent English; some also speak German, Japanese, Spanish or Portugese. They have been specially trained in the teaching of French to adults by audio-visual methods, have many years of experience in this field and are continually monitored by the Institut's teaching supervisor.
Intensive French Courses for Adults.
Accommodation is prepared before your arrival. Either homestay or hotel residence.
Outside the classroom, the student reinforces his French during more informal and varied practice sessions such as: the discussion-lunch with the teachers and the French staff, linguistic games, role playing (students improvise a sketch on an everyday situation), radio news analysis, making television commercials, debates with a teacher on current issues, film showings with discussion, attending outside lectures, evening group outings with a teacher to the theatre, a restaurant, etc.
All these activities take place in a congenial atmosphere, created by all concerned, and which contributes so much to the students' progress and enjoyment.
