The Joy of French

French / Mathematics / German / Latin / English

Learn languages the right way – from the start

Our hugely successful French Envol courses are based on a simple principle – success is learnable. Therefore, we prepare our students in the best manner possible for the coming school period. We strengthen grammar skills and practice common usage of foreign language skills (compréhension orale et écrite), thereby building a good foundation for high scholastic performance.

This has proven to be an outstanding concept for putting together our courses, which can be booked as holiday courses.

New: courses using "Dis donc" 5/6

Many students continue to learn from the old French teaching material. In the transition phase, we will adjust our lessons accordingly.

We look forward to your registration.
