French classes

The teachers
All our teachers are considered specialists in teaching French as a foreign language. For several years, they have been participating in the excellence of our courses all year round, for students of all levels.

Regarding the linguistic stays, they developed particular programs corresponding to the duration of the training courses.

The methods
The Alliance française always proposes playful and interactive courses, to keep learning French pleasurable as possible. We apply the most recent methods for teaching foreign languages.

Our professors have designed specific programs, adapted to each duration of the stays and the student needs, in direct link with the additional activities proposed during the stays.

We believe that speaking the language is extremely important when one needs to communicate. We thus chose to limit the number of students to 15 by class. In this way, each one  can express himself/herself in a serious but friendly atmosphere.

Immerse yourself in the French language and culture… there’s no better way to learn!
The stay in Pondicherry allows a strong immersion in French culture and language due to the methods created by Alliance française. The students can increase the opportunities to speak French, in restaurants and hotels or with the guides and the French-speaking professors.

At the end of his stay, and for each duration, each student will receive a certificate of participation to the linguistic stay in the Alliance française of Pondicherry. It is not an institutional diploma, but allows the student to place clearly his level of French. He can further integrate courses that correspond to his new level, and take an exam to get an internationally recognized diploma.

The more the immersion is important, the more the learning of a language becomes easy.
Therefore, all our guides are French-speaking and they will be accompanying the students as soon as they are not in class. Living in Pondicherry, the will be available seven days a week. All are holders of the BAFA – French Diploma certifying their ability to ensure the supervision and the animation of groups.
