Do you wish to apply to a French university but need to develop or brush up your French skills beforehand? Do you wish to experience French life and culture as well as learn French in the beautiful city of Marseille and the surrounding region of Provence?
Our University Prep French Classes are exactly what you need!
Come get settled at Ecole Internationale de Marseille, located at 32 la Canebière, at the heart of Marseille - the Vieux Port! Our staff and faculty will welcome you and give you the support you need to prepare for your new scholastic life at a French university. Thanks to your new ability to communicate in both written and spoken French, you will be able to further pursue your international goals!
Our University Prep French Classes are made up of 2 parts:
4 hours of morning French classes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Classes take place every day of the week; Monday through Friday.
Your schedule will consist of 3 standard French classes (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, writing, pronunciation, and reading and listening comprehension) and the 4th session will be about “French University Preparation”, which will allow you to get acquainted with the scholastic system in France (administration, specific vocabulary, taking notes, various aspects of the system, et cetera).
In the afternoon, Monday through Thursday, you’ll have Cross Culture sessions from 2:30 to 5:30
Every afternoon is devoted to “Cross Culture” (or cultural visits). In groups, with a guide, you will explore the city and discover the history, Monuments, Museums and regional, national and European heritage, all in French!
You will visit active, cultural and innovative companies to discover the French business world.
In addition to these visits, lectures on various topics are offered, all this to help you understand efficiently the French culture.
Our university prep classes consist of 15 hours of French class, 5 hours of cultural workshops and four afternoons of Cross Culture; a total of over 20 hours of French instruction and about 12 hours of Cross Culture. With 32 total hours per week, your French will improve at a very rapid pace!
You can also opt to prepare for French language exams, like TCF, DELF, and DALF. We also provide these prep classes for the English TOEIC, in case you are planning to improve both languages at once.
Our university prep French classes are accessible to everyone, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced learner. First, you’ll take a placement test that will help you determine what group is best suited for your needs. Each group is made up of 4 to 8 students to ensure real progress and guarantee you the opportunity to speak French during your lessons.
Also, you’ll be monitored via periodic assessments to ensure you’re on the right track:
Our teachers will not only help you progress in French, but also strive to create the best possible conditions, so that you can get started on your personal plans here in France right away.
You can choose how long your training lasts based on your needs and personal preferences; from one month to one year, our team will be there to advise and help you every step of the way.
After you’ve completed our training, you’ll be issued a training completion certificate indicating the level you have reached (according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages CEFR).
