Which method for learning French ?
Learning French is easier than you think !
It’s all about finding the method that is suited for you.
Each person is different.
That’s why My French Course is specialized in individual courses, so that each course will be adapted to the student’s specific needs.
Individual courses are beneficial because :
- They adapt perfectly to the student’s personal needs and rythm
- They garantee maximal concentration
- They are scheduled based on the student’s availabilities
- Faster results keep the student motivated
- Face to face contact is less intimidating
My French Course garantees that :
- Our courses are based on the six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference For Languages and use their certified manuals
- Our courses are taught with the principal of total immersion
- Our courses are defined with the student’s personal objectives in mind
The result of over twenty years of research, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, teaching, assessment (CEFR) is exactly what its title says it is: a framework of reference.
It was designed to provide a transparent, coherent and comprehensive basis for the elaboration of language syllabuses and curriculum guidelines, the design of teaching and learning materials, and the assessment of foreign language proficiency.
The CEFR describes foreign language proficiency at six levels:
A1 and A2, B1 and B2, C1 and C2
|BASIC USER||A1||Can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type. Can introduce him/herself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has. Can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.|
|BASIC USER||A2||Can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). Can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. Can describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.|
|INDEPENDENT USER||B1||Can understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc. Can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken. Can produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. Can describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations or opinions and plans.|
|INDEPENDENT USER||B2||Can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation. Can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. Can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.|
|PROFICIENT USER||C1||Can understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning. Can express him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. Can use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. Can produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.|
|PROFICIENT USER||C2||Can understand with ease virtually everything heard or read. Can summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation. Can express him/herself spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations.|
Our method is structured in a way that will make it a real pleasure to learn French.
