TEACHING FRENCH : The ACCORD method
At Accord, we follow the Common European Framework of Reference for learning, teaching and assessing French as a foreign language, and we place our students in groups based on the levels defined by this framework. While taking into account the language needs and learning strategies of each student, we also respect the specific requirements of the different organisations we work with.
Our main aim is to recreate real-life situations where you will be able to put your French to practical use and develop your learning strategies, enabling you to use the communication skills you already have in your native language when speaking French.
Our ultimate goal is to help you reach a level of fluency where you will be able to communicate efficiently and effectively in French. To achieve this you will need both a strong command of the language and an in-depth understanding of French culture.
Oral communication is a priority: learning to listen, understand, speak and express yourself naturally and appropriately, with fluency and correct pronunciation and intonation.
At Accord Language School you will practise all four language skills in an authentic communicative environment :
