Understanding current affairs in French.

Objectives and skills
This workshop is designed to improve comprehension of an authentic document or programme (radio, TV, etc.).
The following skills are worked on: debating, giving a reasoned opinion, clarifying one's thoughts.
The grammatical points that support these skills will also be covered.

Consistent with the recommendations of the CEFR, these courses are based on an eclectic range of methods inspired by action-oriented and communicative approaches.
The activities are built around the expectations and objectives of the learners, as well as the objectives set by the teacher.

A student visa is essential for non-European students coming to study in France. It authorises you to enter France.

If you wish to study for more than three months in France, you will need to apply for a long-stay visa for studies from the French consular services before your departure. We recommend that you register for our courses at least 8 weeks before your arrival in France. As soon as we receive your enrolment form, we will issue you with a certificate of enrolment, which you will need to apply for your visa.

A minimum number of hours per week (15 hours) is required to obtain a visa, you must therefore be enrolled on the intensive course for at least four months as well as additional workshops (if you need more than 20 hours per week).

CAUTION: A tourist visa is valid for 3 months only and you will be obliged to leave France on its expiry date. This visa does not entitle you to a "student" residence permit.
