A short term French language course aimed at A’ level students (and European students studying for A’ level exam equivalents) who need to build on current skills during an immersion course in France over the holidays.  The main objective of the programme is to improve linguistic abilities, whilst also concentrating on aspects of the language essential to the A’ level (or European equivalent) exam in order to make the best use of students’ knowledge. A great deal of emphasis is placed on oral participation through personal presentations.

These courses are academically demanding, and aimed at older teenagers.  The French language college staff are aware that the students want to make the most of their time in Paris and will do all they can to assist students to ensure they enjoy their French experience, both in and outside the classroom.
