French Language Training

Salut! Je m'appelle Anila. Je parle français et tu? I've done my Masters in French from the MSU and have an experience of 4 years in teaching French to different age groups ranging from school children to adolescents/adults. Modulating the rhythm of the class as well as the material to meet the requirements of individuals in a group is one of my fortes.

Alors... pourquoi français? French is the 2nd most learned language after English. It is one of the most spoken languages with existence on all 5 continents. This opens up a whole new world, be it higher education or job prospects - Canada, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Africa, and the list goes on. For ages, French philosophers, writers, artists, musicians, film makers, fashion designers, and chefs have continued to influence the world. Be it engineering, law, or arts, a DELF/DALF certificate can be your USP, for students and professionals alike. As you might already know, French is the language of Diplomacy and International Relations, be it United Nations, the European Union, UNESCO, NATO, and International Courts.

1. Here at Ashwini Pradhan Language Classes for French language, we help students not only to learn language but also give inputs on culture. Whether you aspire to go to France or a francophone country like Canada, culture is an integral part of language learning experience. With the help of audios, French songs, movies, etc., we help students to get comfortable with the new culture that they will be experiencing. It's a relief to know that French has the same 26 alphabets as English and that many French words are commonly used in English. Given that, we help students to build vocabulary and at the same time keep them informed about cognates or "faux amis" as they are referred to in French.

Our unique point is that we don't rush through students according to batches but allow them sufficient time to learn at their own pace. Moreover, although English/French is the medium of instruction, we encourage students to find similarities with vernacular languages and thus discourage rote learning. Rather than just teaching grammar, we help students to speak their minds and express themselves in this newly acquired medium. We use study material in sync with the CEFRL/CECRL to help students qualify DELF/DALF exams.

Voilà… do visit us for a demo lesson and join us to learn this "Romance" language... the language of amour, vin, baguette...
