The French Spot touch is based on a strategy of teaching that stimulates all the skills necessary in the language acquisition process: listening, speaking, reading and writing. We favour a task-based approach where students collaboratively perform tasks within a socio-cultural environment. Interaction is key to learning and we believe a language revolves around its culture, that's why we aim at incorporating cultural content into our teaching activities. France is just around the corner!
The younger ones are also welcome to our language center. Game-based learning has proved to be the most effective way to learn a foreign language, so let's have fun in French!
The French Spot guarantees quality, availability and variety. Check our French courses section for more details about the classes available.
