French for Beginners: Lessons in mini-groups 3-8

French for beginners

For 25 years, our language school has specialized in teaching French to foreigners through FLE (French Foreign Language) courses at all levels. Beginner students need optimal conditions to progress quickly. To meet these objectives, Lutece Langue has set up a French for beginners learning program in small groups of 3-8 students.

The reduced staff allows the French teacher to pay special attention to each participant. Fr this reason, our French course for beginners in small groups is an ideal introduction to the French language, it is intended for all levels of beginners, namely:

  • – Students who have never studied French
  • – Students with some vocabulary but no ability to formulate sentences
  • Objectives of our beginner French course

    By taking our complete BEGINNER lessons, discover the pleasure of communicating in French! The focus of class activities is placed on conversation practice so that students can not only understand but actually “use” very basic grammar and vocabulary, and learn to speak in French as well as the French basics for beginners. Through our beginner French lessons, students will gain a base with which to engage in simple conversations in daily situations such as: Introducing oneself and others, greeting people, asking and giving simple information, numbers, time, finding their way, etc. Our French courses are for adults (+18).
