The unifying thread of the method used in Alliance française de Trivandrum corresponds to the “savoir-faire” described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The aim is to enable students with strong skills in communication through the learning of four specific skills: oral and written comprehension / oral and written production.
Using a communicative approach of the French language, the teachers of Alliance française de Trivandrum help students to improve their French skills (grammar, vocabulary, conjugation, phonetics) in very specific situations by offering insights of French culture, mentality and way of life.
The teaching method is updated with the recent university research made on didactics and pedagogy in the field of “French as a Foreign Language”. Learning French by having fun is one of our priorities. This does not put a barrier to a rigorous teaching though. The teaching method is set in such a way that the teacher get to know better the needs of their students and to prepare them more accurately for the DELF and DALF examinations.
