The morning classes are based on concrete exercises of oral comprehension and expression in order to prepare you, among other things, for the afternoon meetings. This way, grammar and vocabulary are learned in context.
The afternoon classes enable you to practice French with all sorts of French people: an artist who will show you his studio, a social worker who will talk to you about the underprivileged neighborhoods, an architect who will help you discover the new neighborhoods of Montpellier, a chef with whom you will cook, a Nigerien student who will talk to you about the relationships between France and Africa ... These times of "real-life" exchanges will then be re-worked the next day in class, from the point of view of vocabulary and grammar.
In this class, not only will you speak French in real-life situations, but in addition you will have the unique occasion to discover French society from the inside.
In 2017, 2 immersion courses will focus on the French presidential and parliamentary elections : the March 20-24 advanced course and the April 10-14 Intermediaite course. The aim of these courses is to help you to understand what is at stake in the French political debate; this will be achieved through listening to videos and reading articles and by meeting with activists from the different political parties.
