Our method provides some much needed common sense to teaching French, because we know our students need to truly understand the language they are trying to learn. We believe it is easier to speak when you understand how it works!
Thanks to our good understanding of how French education is provided in Canada, in Ontario, and specially in Ottawa, we are able to debunk lots of myths about the french language and learning process, delivering an efficient and refreshing outlook on the language.
Some of our mantras are:
"It's not that French doesn't make sense, it's simply thats it's not well explained"
"If French was really too difficult to learn, it would be a dead language by now"
"If there are too many exceptions to one rule, it must be the rule that is wrong"
What to expect?
Because French is a very grammatical language, most students need a brush up on grammar. Don't worry: it's been created with novices in mind. We made it efficient, not scary and full of metaphors to help your brain visualize the grammar.
It's really just a puzzle.
You can also expect a step-by-step progression, fixing what needs to be fixed first. Once the base is solid, we can build up your French: your learning plan is made for you by your dedicated teacher, or by the lead teacher if you have 5 hours of class or more per week. This individual learning plan, based on our general curriculum, is very adaptable to each student's case and is key to them develop some long-lasting French communication skills.
In each class, you will have a lesson giving you access to a new language tool. You will be explained how it works, how to use it, how to situate it in the language. You will then manipulate it in written exercices, before practising orally based on real-life communication needs and situations.
Between classes, you will have homework to help your brain retain what have been covered in class.
