General French

100% 1 Review

This course is for students aged: 16-70

Location Type: Seaside, Town/City

Levels: Advanced, Basic, Intermediate

Class Sizes: Medium, 6-10 students

Weekly Hours: General 15-25 hrs/wk

The Standard French course is the best option for those who want to learn French and still have plenty of time to discover the beautiful South of France! This course is available all year long, for all levels of French.

20 Standard group lessons of 45 minutes each in the morning = 15h of French classes per week from Monday to Friday.
NB: LSF reserves the right to modify the schedule of lessons in summer and at other peak times (Standard course mornings and afternoons).

The class sizes at LSF French language school are small, often 8 students, with a maximum of 10 students per class. This French course focuses on providing the main grammatical and lexical tools used to communicate in French, thus concentrating on the five skills essential to the learning of a language: listening, speaking, oral interaction, writing, reading comprehension.
Throughout this course, the students learn how to introduce themselves, talk about their day-to-day life and their background, and they are also able to relate their past experiences, their projects and desires, to express their feelings and doubts, as well as their opinion about various subjects. They can understand others and use their grammatical and lexical knowledge in practical situations.

In order to reach these goals, the teachers use a great variety of teaching aids which allow the students to discover French cultural and social specificities as well as major topical issues. Every week the students’ progress is assessed through a formal test, which allows them to check their improvement and to review the main topics studied during the week.

French Teacher Training

0% 0 Reviews

This course is for students aged: 16-70

Location Type: Town/City

Levels: Advanced

Weekly Hours: General 15-25 hrs/wk

LSF offers a specific training programme for French teachers living and working out of France (primary school, high school, college). It is available all year long and the minimum level required for teachers is B1 according to the CECR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). Before arrival at LSF, teachers will take a level test and will then be placed in a class adapted to their needs.

The objective of this course is to give teachers the keys to help them develop the writing and oral skills of their students whilst learning new methods for the preparation of their courses. All the activities in class allow the teachers to familiarise themselves with the French language and culture and to facilitate the teaching methods used for a specific grammar point.

In addition to the 20 Standard group lessons in the morning, students take specific group lessons some afternoons which are specially designed for French teachers.
20 Standard group lessons of 45 minutes each in the morning (15 hours)
+ 10 specific group lessons of 45 minutes each 3 afternoons per week (3x2h30)
= 22h30 of French classes per week.

In the mornings teachers follow the Standard course at their appropriate level. They develop their grammatical and communication skills, enrich their vocabulary and get new ideas and learn new teaching techniques by observing the LSF teachers.
In the afternoons, teachers follow specific classes which are organised as lively workshops where each participant is encouraged to participate actively, exchanging experiences and teaching methods.
On top of that, teachers students are invited to the one-hour exchange of practice organised each week by the LSF teachers, so that they can talk with each other, exchange and find new ideas.

LSF uses the task-based approach. Thanks to this method, students develop the five skills of the CECR (Speaking, Writing, Listening, Reading comprehension, Oral interaction). For every important grammar point, this course offers activities specially designed to study this lesson. A wide range of activities are proposed, only based on authentic documents (media, press, photos, films, internet, songs, games…) for non-French speakers from beginner level (A1) to the C1 level (according to the CECR). At the end of the course, teachers will get a full range of turnkey activities adapted to the levels they are teaching.

Lots to Like

The city of Montpellier is fantastic, full of restaurants and cafes and totally charming. The facilities of the school are excellent. Typically, students are there from 2-4 weeks but some stay many weeks longer. About 90 percent of the students are between 18-22 years old but there are a handful of older ones like me. Classes run about 4 hours a day and are ok, not great. There’s a lot of repetition of the same activities day to day and much time going around the table listening to each student try to speak French with bad accents. But that’s probably inevitable in a short course like this where students come in and out each week. The teachers are generally good though I think it’s really up to each student to find ways to speak French if you really want to do that. The school will do a little to bolster your knowledge of grammar and it’s good just listening to the teachers in class to hear French being spoken, but you won’t learn a great deal in school to help you actually speak French. You have to do that on your own

LSF is a wonderful way to improve your French

I attended three different French language schools in the summer of 2015 and I highly recommend LSF in Montpellier without reservations. The teachers are excellent and creative. I never felt bored in class because my teachers had so many different innovative ways to teach the grammar and other concepts. They made learning fun. Additionally, they have a lot of high level technology, such as interactive smart boards. They used very few worksheets, but rather did creative fun activities to help students speak and write better. They had high goals with specific objectives each day and week. We wrote every day on interesting topics and the teacher corrected our written work individually. The teachers were kind and encouraging about correcting our spoken language. The entire staff at LSF is kind and welcoming and helpful. You get the impression they are glad the students are there and want to help them not just with school issues, but in helping them enjoy the whole experience in France. The host families are chosen with care and all of my friends who stayed with families had very positive experiences. Montpellier is a darling town with beautiful squares, a large pedestrian zone, and lots to do. The school is in the center of the historic downtown, so right outside the building there were places to eat, lunch or get a coffee with a friend. I loved being with students from all over the world. I felt like my French skills improved tremendously in this excellent program in a beautiful setting.

La mia fantastica esperienza con LSF!!!

Come descrivere i giorni passati in una Nazione bellissima, parlando una lingua altrettanto bella in un posto ricco di persone squisite?

Trascorrere il tempo con gli amici di Lsf è stato un'importante occasione per migliorare la mia conoscenza del francese, non solo scritto ma soprattutto orale, un aspetto della lingua che solitamente non è facile imparare a scuola in Italia.
Ogni mattina ero sempre più entusiasta nel sapere che sarei stata di nuovo accolta da persone competenti e amichevoli; in più ogni giorno era diverso dall'altro perchè il destino riservava potenziali nuove amicizie, che potevano essere francesi, inglesi, americane, svizzere, tedesche..., ma perchè non cinesi o spagnole? Era bello arrivare la mttina e vedere quante persone erano alla scuola quella settimana, e di che nazionalità! Varcavi la soglia e ti trovavi di fronte a loro. L'unico legame? Il francese! Nei casi di difficoltà perchè non rispolverare anche un po' d'inglese?

Lsf non è solo una scuola dove s'impara in aula, ma offre anche molte occasioni di apprendimentoattraverso attività quali escursioni, degustazioni, giochi, uscite in spiaggia che uniscono lo studio del francese l divertimento. Il risultato? Imparare è molto più facile e andarsene alla fine del soggiorno è un po' triste..., ma...perchè non tornare?

Ringrazio e saluto tutti gli insegnanti e chi lavora alla scuola. Ognuno mi ha lasciato un ricordo bellissimo impresso nel cuore.

Spero a presto
