Individual Business French Tuition
Our Business French programmes consist of 30 hours of individually tailored, private French tuition a week, running from Monday to Friday, and aim to prepare you for working in a French speaking environment. LIP offers you a variety of different activities to help you to learn French for business purposes. Most students attend between one and three weeks of training with our highly qualified team of private professional French tutors. All of our teachers are native French speakers, with each specialising in a particular area of expertise, so you can be confident of developing your linguistic ability for working with a French business in your specific professional field.
Authentic French Learning in France
Our residential French Immersion courses in France not only provide you with the opportunity to develop your linguistic abilities in the classroom. The French homestay accommodation we provide ensures that you are able to put your newly acquired skills into practise with your native Francophone host family every evening in preparation for working with French work colleagues. Experiencing the French language in a natural environment allows you the opportunity not only to practise what you have learned in the classroom, but also to improve your ability to follow the rhytm and tone of the language, become familiar with idiomatic expressions, and to have an authentic insight into the culture and customs of a French family.
Professional French Language Qualifications
Check your progress by sitting either the DEFL or DAFL exam in French at the end of your course. You can also show the certificates from these exams to your employer as proof of your newly improved linguistic ability, or as proof that you have an appropriate level to work for a french speaking company!
