Our educational approach
Alliance Française is a worldwide network renowned for the quality of its French courses and trainings.
Our programs are aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). The CEFRL sets clear standards to be attained at successive stages of learning and for evaluating outcomes in order to ensure continuous progress and the acquisition of internationally recognized learning levels.
For us, learning a foreign language is about communication. Thus our teaching is based upon an action-oriented communication based approach and draws on the latest methodological innovations. Right from the very beginning, students learn how to express themselves and are placed in an interactive atmosphere. Classes are small and oral interaction is at the heart of the learning process.
Teachers at Alliance Française d’Arabie Saoudite are all native-French speakers and certified French as a Foreign Language instructors. They also have strong interpersonal skills and a commitment to help students achieve their goal(s) in mastering the French language.
