Course description:
LSF offers a special training programme for French teachers not from France (primary school, secondary school, university). The minimum CEFR level required for course participants is B1.
The goal of this course is to give you the tools you need to develop the written and oral proficiency of your students while providing you with new lesson planning techniques. We use the task-based learning approach, through which students develop the five skills of the CEFR (oral production, written production, oral comprehension, written comprehension, oral interaction).
The activities offered not only let students discover the French language and culture, but also facilitate the teaching of specific grammar points. For each grammar point judged to be essential, we set up activities that allow students to put the concept to use.
We offer a range of activities all based on authentic documents (media, press, photographs, films, Internet, songs, games…) and intended for non French-speaking students from the beginner (A1) to the C1 level of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). You will leave with an arsenal of ready-to-use activities corresponding to the level you teach.
Examples of modules that may be covered during the course:
● Summary of the CEFR ● Phonetics ● Literature for children and young adults ● Resources (games, methods, media, social networks, digital tools) ● Interactive activities (Interactive flat panels) ● Collaborative grammar ● Turning written and oral documents into learning tools ● Developing students’ written and oral proficiency ● Getting students involved and motivated ● Student assessment and self-assessment.
These modules are dynamic and cooperative: participation and the sharing of experiences and teaching practices are emphasised. Our French courses for teachers take place in a classroom equipped with an interactive flat panels, unique in Montpellier.

Standard Course
You will take the standard course corresponding to your level in order to develop your grammar and communication skills and enrich your vocabulary; at the same time, observing our teachers in action will give you ideas for lessons and teaching techniques.
To reach these goals (interaction based on daily life and the news, sharing experiences and opinions), our teachers use a wide variety of teaching aids and the latest digital technology and computer equipment, while introducing you to the cultural and social specificities of France and the French-speaking world and major themes in current events.
Every week, LSF provides you with an assessment test so that you can measure your progress and memorise the main points of the week’s lessons.
For each level, LSF has put together a programme based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages*, allowing you to acquire the speech acts essential to understanding and being understood in French. The detailed programmes are available for reference at the school.
*The CEFR defines methods for learning, teaching and assessing a language and proposes a standardised scale of skills divided into 6 levels.
Individual Classes
In addition to the standard classes, the 6 individual classes per week take place Monday to Friday in the afternoon.
The individual classes let you work on specific areas and are designed around your specific needs and expectations. Your teacher adapts to your needs, helping, advising and correcting in a totally customised manner. Before your arrival, you fill out a form to tell us about your expectations and your specific needs. The individual classes for teachers may repeat topics dealt with during our summer sessions for teachers (see “Option A: Classes for individual teachers” above).
