General French

Available as 20, 24 or 30 lesson options, our General French courses improve all your linguistic skills, giving you a solid understanding of the French language and guiding you toward fluency.

What can you expect on this course?

Real French

Through the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing, you will learn how to use French in many real-life situations. You will develop your understanding of grammar, vocabulary and idioms, and learn the secrets of perfect pronunciation.

Through relevant and engaging lessons, you will practise the four skills of everyday French: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Learn by Doing

We believe there is nothing better for improving your linguistic skills than using them as much as you can. Our lessons are task-based, which means they promote the active production of the French language through class participation and lots of interaction between you and your fellow students.

Improve Your ‘Thinking Time’

As your skills and confidence develop, so will your ability to listen, understand and respond quickly and effectively in French. You will notice this improvement in your ‘thinking time’ most of all when you take your French outside of the classroom and into everyday conversation in beautiful Montreal!


Tailor Your Studies

If you choose to study 30 lessons per week, you will have the chance to personalise your course through a choice of electives:

  • French grammar
  • DELF or DALF preparation
  • Communicative writing
  • Everyday French conversation
  • Conjugation
  • La Francophonie
  • Listening and pronunciation
  • Listening and vocabulary
  • Writing and vocabulary
  • Speaking skills

Creative & Energetic Classes

Our teachers are qualified and experienced, and when it comes to creating lessons, they know what works. Classes are dynamic and motivating, designed to activate and build upon your strengths, whilst also giving focused attention to your weaker areas.

Your teachers create a relaxed and informal classroom environment and are trained to deliver ongoing support, feedback and care throughout your time with us. This focus on support and encouragement builds your confidence as you advance towards fluency.

Authentic Materials

There is no substitute for authentic French so in addition to textbooks, our teachers use real sources such as newspapers, the internet, TV and radio. You will learn to appreciate the richness of the language by gaining exposure to it in a variety of real-life contexts.
