Our teaching approach

 

At Speak Français our teachers have a very lively and dynamic approach to the language. The emphasis is above all on oral communication, all in a relaxed atmosphere necessary for good learning.

1. Confidence: It’s essential when learning a new language to actually speak it out !
We make a point to provide a friendly and supportive atmosphere, where students can express themselves with confidence and improve, without being judged or scared to make mistakes.

2. Learning should be a pleasure: research shows  that we remember best when we are active, having fun and engaged ! Every class is designed to be qualitative, engaging and on point, in a friendly and supportive environment.

3. Tailor made and customized courses:

Are you planning to move abroad for your career or family ?

4. Flexibility: you can choose to take individual or group lessons, adapt the pace and content to what suits you best.
We serve our customers as best as possible by adapting to their needs and possibilities in terms of schedules for the French classes.

5. Top notch Teachers

We believe that teachers should be relatable : they understand the corporate world and needs of professionals. That is why we select certified teachers with a strong teaching experience and academic record, but also outstanding people skills and international corporate experience.
