Two different teachers share the morning lectures. One before the coffee break and another afterwards. One is multi-lingual in order to speed up the understanding of French grammar. There is intensive practice in "role plays" between the student and the others in the class. The student is encouraged to speak as much as possible. Verbal skills are developed through practice!
