FRENCH TEACHING AT THE ALLIANCE FRANCAISE OF TAIWAN
The Alliance Francaise of Taiwan (AFTW) puts the emphasis on an action orientated approach of French language. The teaching in our French language classes (from level A1 to level C1) aims at the student’s performance. The goal we set for your learning at the AFTW is you to be able to:
… in French
In order to achieve that, our teachers will, of course, explain to you how the French language operates, make you do vocabulary, grammar exercises, and other activities, but not only, because you will understand better, learn better, by doing: you learn how to speak by speaking, you learn how to write by writing.
The teaching at the AFTW is in French : but do not worry if you are a complete beginner, our teachers know how to adapt their level of speech and make sure you understand! We encourage you to use French as much as possible during the classes, but if really needed, another language can be used to help you.
The levels of our French language courses, exactly match the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
Once you have completed an A1 level course at the AFTW, you possess, in principle, the linguistic skills and competences required to pass a DELF A1 (or an A1 level TCF), and it goes the same way for levels A2, B1, B2, C1…
