Étoile Institut Standard and Intensive Programs


Standard and Intensive Programs

At Etoile Institut, we believe that education goes beyond the classroom.

Our new 2020-2021 schedule, our online offering and our personalized tutorials aim to accompany students’ ever-evolving needs and aspirations.

Our Standard and Intensive classes, which can include prep for and awarding of official certifications or diplomas, help students of all levels to rapidly acquire French skills, whatever their objectives.

6 lessons (5 hrs) per week of Culture Online – a cultural-immersion program created by our professors with personalized tutoring

Culture Online

A new online format for our cultural-immersion program:

∗ Each week, a new theme is presented allowing students to gain an in-depth and immediately useful understanding of French culture and current events.

∗ More time-management autonomy: courses are published twice a week, so students are free to decide when to follow them.

∗ A graduated program with resources calibrated to students’ levels, with the possibility to review materials several times to better understand them.

∗ Weekly validation of students’ participation with the option of providing feedback and suggestions to enrich upcoming materials.

∗ #FrenchLife: relevant and entertaining information made available to students to help them make the most of their stay (practical administrative information, activities with our partners, cultural resources, etc.).

∗ On a monthly basis and by appointment, each student enrolled in the intensive program (*) receives a 45-minute tutoring session with a teacher. The purpose of these personalized sessions is to measure the student’s progress, to clarify language acquisition and to discuss the student’s academic/professional goals.

(* tutoring sessions are for students enrolled for a minimum of 12 weeks)
