How does it work?

This is what each day of your online French course will be like. We use this methodology to ensure you improve your French as quickly and effectively as possible.

  • During your class

    Small groups of 8-10 students from around the world collaborate via video call with their teacher on the lesson’s objectives They identify personal learning objectives and goals, discuss the questions and task(s) , review any questions and set up the assigned task to be done after class.

  • After your class: Assigned Task (30 minutes)

    Students are asked to work on a writing or speaking post-class collaborative activity, which they may be required to upload on Teams and share with the class. The assigned task gives students extra practice with the language learned in the lesson. Online This task will help identify individual strengths and areas that need to be developed Follow-up discussion and feedback with their group and teacher will help students and teacher set new learning objectives.

    Note: Reflection on learning and personal goal setting create a more personalised and intensive learning experience in an online setting.
