TEACHING METHODS

The written French course program may be provided by Skype. It is therefore possible to follow your classes at home or during your lunch hour at the office. Skype has a significant advantage, which is to be able to share a screen with your speaker: you can write texts and receive live corrections from your teacher.

Changes to the course schedule are possible, without penalty, with 48 hours notice.

There is a study area that contains several learning tools. This space is a real place of information sharing and provides access to the history of course notes exchanged between you and your teacher. You can also discuss with your teacher your willingness to do writing exercises outside of school hours to consolidate the concepts acquired during the course.

COURSE DURATION

Global Lingua offers flexible class schedules, so classes are given at the frequency and timing that may be best for the student. Students usually choose to do 30-minutes or one-hour classes, but they can also choose to do longer courses. Students usually choose to start the program with a 30-minutes class to get used to conversing and writing in French, and then they end up taking one-hour classes.
