The French Blended Learning course is specially designed to give you greater flexibility in when, where, and how you learn French. It is ideal for students who want to make progress on their French quickly but have limited amount of time to commit to attending class.

The blended learning method combines the advantages of face-to-face instruction with the convenience of online activities, providing students the best of both worlds. Once a week, for 90 minutes, you’ll participate in an immersive class led by one of our expert native-speaking French teachers. After class, you’ll enhance your studies by completing 90 mintues of exercises on your own on an interactive online platform. Using the latest learning methods and engaging multimedia content, you’ll improve your reading, writing, and listening comprehension skills.

Benefits of the blended learning method:

  • Expert face-to-face instruction combined with world-class online activities.
  • An experienced French instructor will support you for the entire duration of the course and provide regular feedback on your progress.
  • An interactive online learning platform rich in multimedia content.
  • A curriculum that matches our regular General French courses but offers greater flexibility.
  • Individual and group assignments that encourage independent thinking as well as conversation and camaraderie with fellow students.
  • An online chat feature to interact with fellow students and your teacher.

To succeed in this class, you should be:

  • Comfortable using a computer or tablet, able to navigate the internet with ease, and familiar with Google applications
  • Willing to study independently using interactive learning platforms
  • Able to attend class once a week for 90 minutes on a designated day, at a specific time
