French Classes

At the Language Center we use effective, fast and state-of-the-art methods relying on multimedia, to learn pronunciation, grammar, syntax, and other important elements which lead to language mastery.

In your French classes, you will be asked to speak French only. We will ask you to do a lot of conversational work, based on contemporary French media such as newspapers, internet sites, television and radio, on a wide range of topics. You will cover important cultural aspects such as the “tutoyer vs. vouvoyer” question. Grammar and vocabulary will be taught extensively, so that you can progress quickly.

Finally, we will teach you the subtle differences between “Swiss-French” and “French”.

In order to speak better French, students need to speak MORE French. This is why The Language Center offers all of its enrolled students 2 hours of  Complimentary Conversation Practice (social French) a week.      Learn more

Individual Class Schedule

We offer individual courses at your convenience with a maximum of 6 hours per day and a minimum of 1 hour per week from 7 am to 9 pm by appointment. As the school operates on the principle of continuous registration, all schedules are modifiable and can be adjusted to your availabilities.

Group Class Schedule

We propose custom schedules and open group classes starting with a minimum of 2 students, so that we can serve you better. Let us know when you are available for classes and we will do our best to organise group classes accordingly.

You can also join existing group classes. To do this, please click on the link below to see the list of classes that are open for enrolment (last update: August 2020).
