Our Language Classes: Unlocking the World of French
Discover our comprehensive range of language classes designed to suit various proficiency levels, from complete beginners (A1) to advanced speakers (C2). What sets us apart is our immersive approach: all our traditional classes are conducted entirely in French, providing an authentic linguistic experience that fosters rapid language acquisition.
Understanding course levels
The Alliance Française de La Nouvelle-Orléans follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) for language acquisition progression. Our curriculum is carefully designed to follow the CEFR's guidelines, ensuring that you acquire language skills in a logical and progressive manner. As you advance through our courses, you'll notice your language abilities developing from basic communication to advanced fluency.
By adhering to the CEFR, we can employ proven teaching methods and strategies that have been fine-tuned to enhance your learning experience. You can expect a well-rounded curriculum that covers all language aspects, including speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
One of the key advantages of learning through the CEFR is its global recognition. Your proficiency level, as determined by the CEFR, is a valuable asset that can be understood and acknowledged by educational institutions, employers, and language learners worldwide. It provides you with a universally accepted reference point for your French language skills.
In each of our leveled courses, we use the Cosmopolite books by Hachette. We sell them individually or as a bundle with both the textbook and workbook. Both are comprehensive, focusing on French reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The textbook is used in class, while the workbook is used for homework. Each come with transcriptions and answer keys.
This innovative French learning tool immerses you in real-life situations shared by French speakers worldwide. It adapts to your pace with six double-page spreads per chapter, taking an inductive approach to language learning. Explore authentic resources, tackle captivating class projects, and gain global insights. "Cosmopolite" enriches each chapter with "Cultures" lessons, multimedia resources, and workbooks with transcripts and answer booklets. The student's books give access to the "parcours digital" which offers self-correction exercises to accompany the course material. The interactive student's book includes the coursebook, workbook and all the audio and video material.
Apolearn is a cutting-edge digital learning platform specially designed for educational institutions, training centers, and higher education providers. With a strong focus on fostering collaboration and enhancing the learning experience, Apolearn offers a dynamic and interactive environment for both educators and learners alike.
At AFNO (Alliance Française de La Nouvelle-Orléans), we've embraced Apolearn as a powerful tool to support our French language programs.
