A more dynamic approach to learn French

Regardless your level (beginner, intermediate or advanced), you will use a new textbook in your French class from January 2020. After having analyzed several textbooks and their teaching approaches, our teaching team tried them in pilot classes in order to check which ones were more adapted to our students. « Défi » and « Tendances » have been selected because they encourage learners to speak and interact with others during the course.

As Sylvain, French teacher at Alliance Française de Lyon explains: “These new textbooks enhance the student learning experience and give opportunities to speak out.”
