French courses for Teachers

Our FLE experts

Our FLE teachers’ trainers intervene during missions abroad and regularly participate in international events organized around the pedagogy of FLE.

They have also been qualified as examiners by the CIEP and the CCIP and train students to take exams and certifications such as the DELF/DALF (Diplôme d’études en langue française and Diplôme approfondi de langue française), the TEF (Test d’évaluation de français) and the DFP (Diplôme de français professionnel).

Always on the lookout for new ideas for the classroom, our experts have created numerous tools to promote educational innovation in FLE teaching. They accompany teachers in order to equip them and awaken their creativity.

The objective of our FLE training courses is to provide teachers with a multitude of tools and turnkey resources and to make them completely autonomous in the creation of content and in their classroom management.

High-performance tools

E-LEARNING PLATFORM

Throughout the duration of your training, you will have access to our e-learning platform, interactive and social, which contains a training catalog of More than 500 modules ranging from level A1 to level C1/C2.

Our platform allows students to deepen their knowledge of French (grammar exercises and lessons, vocabulary, conjugation, written production, written and oral comprehension, phonetics) and to immerse themselves in current events and French and Francophone culture.

Our educational team answers all the questions asked on the platform:

E-COLLABORATIVE PLATFORM
