Formations Français Langue Etrangère

With our French as a Foreign Language (FLE) courses, it is now possible to learn French in a fun and effective way while making rapid progress.

We often hear that learning a language is never better than when you immerse yourself in a country, in its culture. It is true that practicing the language on a daily basis, in a dynamic and sufficiently calm and studious environment, makes it possible to progress quickly.

This is why we have decided to develop, in addition to traditional French as a Foreign Language (FLE) formation, several courses allowing you to learn the French language and culture. In addition, these courses prepare you for integration into schools or universities in the best possible conditions.

Adapted course levels

Small groups to optimize learning

First of all, we organize groups of a maximum of 12 people in order to facilitate interactions and exchanges.

Likewise, it creates a friendly and caring atmosphere.

Finally, we make sure to respect everyone's learning pace with individual monitoring.

If the written word remains important, we favor oral expression and comprehension. Isn't it a pleasure to understand, follow and participate in a discussion?

Learning French at the Marco Polo Institute is therefore intended to be pragmatic and effective and aims to

  • Integrate linguistic and cultural knowledge

Varied educational activities

Our teachers rely on role plays, simulations, or even authentic written, audio or video documents. And all this to allow an optimal interaction between the participants.

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic teacher.

Because we aspire to excellence, we favor working with formation partners bearing the FLE quality label..

The success of your progress in French also depends on self-study.

We encourage participants to get involved outside of class to put the knowledge learned into practice. This is essential and makes it possible to optimize the courses.

The municipal media library is located a few hundred meters from the premises of the Marco Polo Institute. You can borrow novels, magazines, teaching manuals, films or audio books and also find a very studious workspace. The library also offers many digital resources.
