Online French courses
Online courses are among the most popular alternatives to college and faculties for learning French. If many sites and applications offer online French language courses, quality and cost strongly vary, ranging from basic free teachings to intensive (and expensive) online courses. Online courses allow students and professionals to access these resources at any time and without constraints; those platforms also rely on various types of media intended to help mastering French, both written and oral. Audio lessons, conversation games, grammar exercises, video medias, tests and mock exams, etc. are among the many tools you can find when registering to online teachings.
Language stays and international exchanges
Language stays and international exchanges are another popular alternative for learning French. What better way to develop a language skill than to communicate with native speakers? A linguistic stay in Paris will quickly improve your level in French thanks to daily contact with French speaking people. Whether in host families or by sharing an apartment with francophone students, many options are available if you are looking for the right linguistic stay, according to your age, skills and goals. You can choose to stay in France for a few weeks or a whole year, and pick the city that suits you the most – Paris often the best choice if you want to learn French – as well as the activities that you will enjoy during your stay.
Immersion is essential if you wish to acquire a real mastery of the French language. International students should try to immerse themselves daily in an environment where French language is omnipresent : this could be achieved by staying in a country where French is the official language, whether residing alone, with other students or within a host family. Language schools like the Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne give French language students an opportunity to enroll in intensive French courses while immersing themselves in Paris daily life. This immersion is also promoted by providing support in administrative procedures, finding accommodations or organizing cultural events that will allow students to significantly improve their language skills.
