Courses are based on the communicative approach and action-oriented approach recommended in the CEFR. Students will carry out projects, tasks activities and exercises linked to the objectives of their language level. The intercultural approach is an integral part of courses. In addition learners are accompanied in developing learner autonomy.
Classes use ICT, authentic documents and multimedia. Besides class, significant engagement and personal work are required to make efficient progress.
French courses aim to develop language skills, intercultural skills and learner autonomy. They are organized by level. Each course aims to reach one of the CEFR levels:
Level A0 = complete beginner
Level A1 = introductory or discovery level
Level A2 = intermediate or survival level
Level B1 = basic operational level
Level B2 = advanced level or independent user
Level C1 = advanced or experienced, autonomous user

Assessment aims to determine what has been acquired, what is in the process of being acquired and what has not been acquired. It also takes into account class participation and personal work (continuous assessment). The final grade out of 20 is based on continuous assessment (60%) and the final exam (40%).
