OISE Paris - learn French as a third language


About OISE Paris

OISE Paris welcomes students from all ages from 12 years old to 17 years old. The school offers two programs to allow everyone to practice the language eloquently.
The Course formats are intensive, weekly and systematically associated with personal work. Classes are held in small groups, which allows the teacher to listen to the student and provide personalized help.


French Programmes

12 - 14 year olds
Groups have a maximum of 4 students of the same level of French and similar age. The programs and contents are specially adapted to the group according to the needs of the students and their objectives. OISE language courses require some involvement and dedication from the students. Homework is given every day of the week.
On Fridays, each student delivers what they did for their project and performs in front of others. For their oral presentations, the student chooses what they want by considering the theme of the day: "what do I know about architecture, architecture in my country, in my city, the one I love, etc. They can also show photos taken during their stay and comment on them. Each of them is responsible for their presentation and must express their tastes, impressions, preferences and personal experiences

14 - 17
Groups are up to 8 students, of different nationalities, from 14 to 17 years old. This intensive course includes 22.5 hours of classes designed to help our students communicate in French effectively and eloquently
Level test: An initial assessment of each student is made before their arrival via a French test sent by email during the month of June 2018 and a Skype session. This assessment is then refined by an oral test on arrival. The groups are formed and can be modified according to the progress and difficulties of each student.
Teaching French: The courses (maximum 8 students per class) are designed according to strict pedagogical rules. Morning classes are intensive and focused on basic knowledge. Any grammar or vocabulary rule is immediately put into practice. Small groups allow teachers to give individual attention to each student. The afternoon workshops (early afternoon) systematically call upon the fundamentals of the morning.


Cultural Programme

Our social programme provides an opportunity to speak French outside the classroom. Examples of trips included are the famous Notre-Dame, Le Marais and Place de Vosages, all very intersting and popular attractions in Paris. All activities and full day excursions are part of the course, prepared by tutors in order for students to practice french vocabulary and French expressions in a variety of situations



Homestay

OISE offers a half-board homestay to students. This is the best solution for practicing the language daily by using it in conversation. All OISE host families have credentials checked according to strict guidelines.

Residential

The Junior Residence is located in the center of the Marais, in the very heart of Paris, in the 4th arrondissement. It is a typically Parisian building with classrooms, common rooms and rooms on the same site. Students are supervised 24- hours a day.
