The Swiss French School method
The methodology put in place by the Swiss French School consists of reproducing the learning techniques used for a mother tongue learner. It is a matter of listening carefully before rehearsing and practicing. The knowledge of sounds is done first, followed by the study of grammar. A method that has proved its worth, with 97% positive results observed.
There are four different ways of teaching.
Before your course with a teacher, you have to follow interactive online lessons and exercises. These teaching aids allow you to prepare each lesson, improve your pronunciation, enrich your vocabulary, and familiarize yourself with words, expressions, accents and grammar rules. Each online lesson ends with a series of exercises that will be corrected by your teacher before your "encounter", i.e. your French course. The general lessons are done in small groups of 2 to 5 students maximum. The teacher favours the speaking time of each student and corrects your accent. Finally, the Workshops are complementary courses on thematic subjects or proposing an approach to a particular area (grammar, professional French, etc.).
