French courses

French lessons proposed by ELFI are intensive and aimed at non French speaking people of all levels (beginner, elementary, intermediate and advanced). Using well known and efficient learning methods like Alter Ego+ and Edito as well as the whole set of specialized books in the French language for non French speaking people, our lessons hold full and various contents.

All didactical material adopted for the class like newspaper articles, literary texts, movies and audio media bring excellent dynamics. Therefore, it offers a more practical approach of the language and allows the student to understand all the aspects of French and Swiss culture.

Every daily (three-hour) lesson features grammar, spelling, conjugation and vocabulary.
Comprehension of the spoken language is essential; our classes include extensive oral and conversational practice.

These courses prepare for different official examinations and degrees, especially for every level of the DELF and DALF as well as for entrance examinations for University: the French admission examination and the French part of the ECUS examination (“Examen Complémentaire des Universités Suisses”).

The DELF is also recognized by Swiss authorities for the application of a residence permit in order to certify the level of French.

Our lessons are held in small and medium size groups, which allows us to focus on our students and consequently offer a higher quality of education.

We also organize for our students, real-life situation training as well as cultural activities (museums, libraries, discovery of the city, etc).
