If you are looking for a French course in France, you must be wondering : how can I find the perfect French course for me ?
Let us help you !
We are a French school in Nice, founded in 1993 and we have taught more than 25 000 students over the past 25 years.
To help you choose your French course we will need you to answer a few questions :
What are your learning goals ?
We all have different agendas regarding our motivation to study French.
Let’s take some examples.
- If you are a student, in your high school’s years, most likely you will want to study for your exams.
In that case, we would strongly advise you to choose a « Exam Preparation » Course. We offer them in April and during the summer. You can choose the duration of your course : 1, 2 weeks and even longer.
- If you are in college and plan on doing a year abroad, in a French University for example you might need to take the DELF Exam level B2 before being accepted. In that case, we encourage you to choose our Delf Preparation Course. It lasts 4 weeks and at the end, you will take the exam near Nice and have the result pretty quickly. At alpha.b French school we have a very high success rate of 95%.
- You have children under 15 and you would like to come in Nice and study French with them. In July and August, you can join our Family Course.
- If you are an adult, you might not want to be in a classroom with young students. You would prefer to share commun interests with your classmates. From the end of May until the beginning of September, we offer a 30+ course for adults students. You can choose an intensive or only-mornings course.
- If you are a senior and you are deeply interested in French culture and French language, we offer a 50+ course 3 times a year where you will be able to mix both goals.
What kind of teaching method do you want ?
At alpha.b we have a communicative approach which allows an immediate and solid application of your knowledge of the French language:
- Teamwork to write speeches, role play, debates in French, simulations, going around the table, recordings, real-life situations, videos, games…
- A engaging approach to French grammar developed in le Livre de l’Etudiant (given on arrival) and regularly updated original documents (newspapers, stories, song lyrics, TV programmes, French radio, exercises…)
