Enintään 9 opiskelijaa per luokka: se on miellyttävän ilmapiirin ja tehokkaan oppimisen salaisuus!
Menetelmämme, joka perustuu kielen kommunikaatiomuotoon, ei edellytä oppikirjoja, vaan tarjoaa opettajien luoman räätälöityjen ltuntien järjestelmän, joka on mukautettu opiskelijoiden kielellisiin tarpeisiin. Keskitymme keskusteluun ja sen käyttämiseen päivittäin ranskaksi. Siksi opetusmateriaalimme keskittyy todellisiin ranskalaisiin tilanteisiin ja sisältää lukuisia materiaaleja, kuten laulun lyriikoita, sanomalehti- ja aikakauslehtiartikkeleita, videoita, pelejä jne.
Opiskelijat sijoitetaan eri ryhmiin riippuen tasostaan: täysin aloittelijat, edistyneet aloittelijat, alempi keskitaso, keskitaso, ylempi keskitaso ja edistyneet.
Ensimmäisenä päivänä suoritetaan suullinen arviointi, jossa määritetään kurssi / taso, joka sopii parhaiten puhutun ranskankielen tasoosi.
Opiskelijoita kannustetaan osallistumaan aktiivisesti luovien menetelmien, kuten esitysten, draaman tekniikoiden ja keskustelujen avulla.
Ääntäminen korjataan kaikkina aikoina luokassa, ja kotitehtävät annetaan opiskelijoille kunkin oppitunnin lopussa (korjaus tehdään joko yksilöllisesti luokassa tai ryhmäkokouksessa päivän alussa).

Messy way to teach a foreign language. I was expecting a kind of method to follow but couldn’t understand it at allNäytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
I was pleased with the instructors I had but overall my personal experience was lacking. There is no structure and we were supposed to have no more than 9 students. There were times we had 12 which didn’t make too much difference but I felt having the 9 would have given us more individual attention. This did not happen. At times our “assignments” would not be completed and we were told to finish the following day. This was not the case. No homework was ever assigned and neither was there testing except at the end of the 4 weeks to see what if any progression was made.
As far as the social activities go providing the breakfast was very generous and pleasant. The wine tasting, however, was a complete bore. It could have been greatly improved by having a flight, either vertical or horizontal, instead of devoting an hour and a half to a mediocre wine. How much can be said about cheap wine?
I personally need a more structured environment and this was not the case for me.
Very welcoming staff, extra lessons and activities were great and at least twice a week. Materials and lessons focused on essentials and for more specific stuff they had extra lessons in the afternoon. Loved it!Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
The classes were perfect for complete beginners as they began with a basic introduction of ones self and then built on to this each lesson. We had one teacher for the whole 12 weeks and the maximum number of students was 10 during that time. The location was very convenient for me. It would have been good to go to have a revision section every few classes, as to refresh our memories. It was a good introduction to the French Language and would continue if time allowed.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
- Evening classes (and in general the wide variety of schedules offered) were very convenient for us to choose a time of the day and the week which fit into our schedule.
- Lesson instructions were completely in French, which was good for immersion in the language and helped us to more easily understand spoken French.
- Small class sizes were very good for one-on-one instruction and group lessons. We felt that we were all learning together and we were very comfortable helping each other to learn.
- Interactive teaching style kept us engaged and motivated.
- On the first day we had difficulties accessing the school, as we did not know the door code. It would be helpful to have the necessary information sent to students ahead-of-time.
- An early lesson on how to ask basic questions in French would have more easily allowed us to get clarifications while maintaining discourse in French (for example, "How do you say X in French?" or "What is the difference between X and Y?").
- For verb conjugations, although we were taught a few regular and irregular cases, it was often insufficient to allow us to extrapolate to other cases. More comprehensive demonstrations and practice when learning new grammar would be helpful.
The classes were dynamic, fun and the teacher did a very good job in engaging everybody. I was able to read and have a basic conversation after a couple of weeks.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Loved the classes & teachers, and the location was great. It was a great way to meet new people as well, and the overall atmosphere was happy and positive.
The amount of homework was just right, and the time of the lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays was perfect for me. Good choice for week days too.
What I would suggest is the introduction of tests. This would definitely have made me work more, and feel like I had tangible goals to work towards. I feel quite muddled with the basics, and tests would have helped me understand them more.
When I joined the class I said I was a beginner, but the class I was put into was definitely not beginner level. You need a class for people starting from ground zero, who know absolutely no French. I think it’s important to get the foundations nailed before moving forwards, because if you don’t have this you can’t progress further on. For me, I still don’t feel like I know the proper basics, this is something tests would also help with, because it would force you to revise and repeat...
Hope this helps!

Teachers were excellent, very hard working and put a lot of effort into the lessons (especially Sylvie). Class sizes were small as promised. Location was good, pretty central. I was living in the 5th and walked every day for about 40 mins to get there which I really enjoyed. The extra activities were ok but repetitive for me as I was at the school for such a long time. The guided tours each month with Antoine were excellent, definitely not to be missed.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

I had very good one week at L'Atelier9. The teachers and staff members are friendly.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
All in all I think I had an interesting stay in Paris because my teacher was exerted in helping all the students. There was a mixture of oral, writing and reading skills but in the center were grammar, talking and vocabulary training.
I also liked the school because of its amazing location in the 9th district of Paris.
What I didn´t like so much was the ambiance in school ... all classroomes and the "recreation room" seemed to me in a bad state and a bit improvisational. The other thing which I didn´t like very much was that many students came from anglophone countries like Great Britain, the Unites States or Australia ... so all of them were always talking in English which isn´t very helpful when you are interested in learning French.
My experience at L'Atelier 9 was wonderful. I had a fantastic teacher (Vanessa) that enabled me to understand French after 4 weeks. I appreciate a lot the other students coming from all over the world.
The school was in a very nice location, very easy to get to with the metro. I also enjoyed the activities especially the one about Paris and the experience at the cinema. The tour of the modern part of Paris was very interesting.
There were two things I disliked. One was that all of us knew English so we spoke in English and not in French. That was our fault. The second was that everybody had the cell phone on the table looking for
translation or may be for e-mails. I know that Vanessa tried to change this, but it was almost impossible!!!!
I like the way they teach, lot of speak-exercises, listening to songs, playing games, etc.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

I enjoyed talking with the teachers and my classmates so much, it pushed me to speak more even though I'm shy and scared to show my poor French.
The location and the school is very nice, not very big but it has a warm feeling. Students were very international, a small class with more than 6 different nationalities. It's also good for us to learn some culture diversity.
However, the only problem was that every student has different level of the language, it was difficult to follow at the very beginning. And after a period, I had to learn again many subjects because the other students didn't know about it.
Generally, it was good experience to stay in L'atelier. Every time I finished m class, I feel so happy to speak French and it inspires me to keep learning the language and fall in love with the language.
Everything was great. I enjoyed my classes a lot. The location, facilities & housing were great.
The teacher was really good, very interactive and I loved the fact that she didn't speak any English or even she didn't allow anyone to speak anything else aside from French. She would explain at least two or three times if still not understood. Interactive approach, including everyone in class.
Overall, my experiences at L'Atelier 9 was good. Although it was very difficult for me, especially the first week. Despite starting in a new school were everything takes place/happens in French, what made it more difficult was that I came in the last week of July and therefore most of the assignments in class was hard for me, because the things/concepts hasn't been introduced to the compared to the other students. When the month changed I was placed at the next (and higher) level due to procedure, I guess. Consequently I was placed in the same level as people who had four weeks more experiences at L'Atelier 9 than me, which was a bit weird and perhaps not optimally. Still, I ended up being very happy that I followed my class from A2 to B1.
Even though I am very happy with my time there and I think my French, as well as my confidence and willingness, have improved. It was more challenging than expected. I think generally I was placed wrongly, but being the worst in class also motivated me and made me focus and work even harder, which I think has been good for my development.
There were more grammar lessons than I had expected, since I thought the main focus would lay on the oral part. But in the end I'm glad I learned more grammar. So overall I was very pleased with the activities in class.
The location of the school was very nice, and I very much liked the size of the school and that it was in an old apartment. This made everything more relaxed and homey. The teachers and administrators were very nice, and I loved that one of my teachers (I had two different teachers in two weeks) joked as much as she did. It took a lot of the pressure off the students in the classroom and made the classes more entertaining, as well as more challenging. Also did the aperitif/get together in the beginning of August helped us to meet more people which was nice.
I know that next time I go to L'Atelier 9 l I will stay for more than two weeks, because it was around the middle/end of the second week I really started to settle down.
At first I though it was very difficult because the teacher was talking in French all the time but when I got used to that, I found the classes were very good. I think I learned a lot of French words and phrases and I'm looking forward to two more weeks in the same school at the end of summer!Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
The classes were small which was great. Teacher Erika was very good – she was patient and introduced extra material during the class. The location was fine. Facilities were a little poor. The kitchen could be jazzed up. The activities were fun and worthwhile. The class was very mixed in terms of ability which I found a little frustrating, but it was overall a good week.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

I liked the conditions and the warm atmosphere during the clases. Everybody was nice to each other and very supportive, even when you made a mistake.
We practiced writing, reading, pronunciation and conversing with each other a lot. There were lots of practical usage of speaking.
I really liked classes witch Stephanie. She was patient and very kind. She explained everything very well and corrected our mistakes.
The classes during which I felt very bad, were extra classes ''Jouons'' with Vanessa during our first week. The game with numbers was too fast. We could not manage it and it was very stressful for us. The game ''French idioms'' discouraged me, because there was no way we could understand it with our knowledge of French language. In this stage of study (third class) it is impossible to understand it for a foreigner.
I missed didactic materials (e.g. board games, word puzzles, didactic games) during the classes.
The location of L'Atelier 9 is good in my opinion.
I like the fact there was tea, coffe for us and a microwave for our userage. In my opinion access to dvd films (connected to our studies) should be free. I pleasantly recall team building meeting (''Pique-nique'').
The house I stayed in was too far. It took me more than an hour to get to school.
The woman I stayed with was very nice. I felt free in the house. Her daughter were very kind as well. I had great contact with them. The only thing which was difficult to me was conversation with Mrs. Gladiz. She was talking to me like I knew French really well (I told her I just started studying French). I was really stressed trying to understand her and answering her questions. i felt awkward when I did not know what to say.
This was my fourth time that I went to Paris to learn French and my first time at L'Atelier 9.
The first thing I noticed on my first day there was that all of the staff are kind. Not only kind, but in an honest and exhilarated way. This spirit seemed to be spread out over all students and it would have been very hard to not become influenced. One of the biggest advantages at this school is that students need to be over 18 years old and so they know why they inscribe. The method of teaching was very varied, intensive, exciting and also amusing - a perfect mixture.
This was very important to me because being employed full-time I needed to take vacation and I didn't want to be exposed to competition in class or pressure to perform. Exactly this helped me to make my biggest progress with French during my stay of 3 weeks.
I am really looking forward to going back to this school in a few months.
All the items are OK with me. The school has a very good location, the teacher was perfect and very good lessons. I think it is not necessary to explain all the positives, because I would like to continue my class.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Our teachers were great and so was the size of the class. The level of the course was appropriate, and the setting was social and relaxed. Our cooking course and tour of Paris was also really good, and the teachers were available for questions and follow up.

I had the best summer this year. I loved my time at L'Atelier 9 and would definitely return and recommend it to others. I think that what made it for me was our teacher Celine. As a beginner, I expected to be overwhelmed, but her lessons were fun and I felt like I advanced tremendously! The other students were great, and I know I made some friends for life. The general atmosphere was very welcoming and inclusive. I really enjoyed meeting so many new people. The location was walking distance from where I was staying, which was nice! I thought the workshops were great, and felt like an unexpected bonus to compliment the lessons, as were the Paris tours.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
I had an absolutely amazing time. My class was filled with enthusiastic people from various cultural backgrounds who mingled quite easily. Agnes is the funniest and the best teacher I have seen when it comes to teaching language skills!
Location and facilities of the school were just perfect, and I wish I stayed there longer!
My seven and a half year old daughter and I have attended l'Atelier9 on two occasions and only have good things to say about this school. The first time we attended for five weeks last summer (2013) and the second time was a week this October (2013).
We started as complete beginners and have had a very positive experience.
The school offers summer group classes for children and my daughter reported that the classes were not only interesting, but also very practical. Thanks to Olivier, who was very engaging and personable, she learned a lot and started practicing her newly acquired skills right away.
I was in an intensive class for adults taught by Céline. Céline is an excellent teacher – extremely patient, knowledgeable, and dynamic. French is a hard language to learn for a native Russian speaker, but despite the fact that I was struggling with pronunciation and grammar, I enjoyed our every class. The didactic materials we were provided helped a lot with understanding the concepts.
This October, I was in a class taught by Vanessa, who is also a very good teacher. It was only one week, but I feel I learned quite a bit. Vanessa gave us very useful techniques to practice pronunciation, which I continue to use at home.
That week, my daughter had private lessons with Stéphanie, which went very well. I feel she’s more confident and is not embarrassed to practice French with native speakers (e.g. in a restaurant). She has French at school, but I feel that that week she learned more French with Stéphanie than she had since the school year began.
I am very motivated to become fluent in French and will be returning to L’Atelier9 as soon as I can.
Yes, one week in this school gave me more then a few months of learning here in USA. So yes, it was great experience although I stayed for only one week which obviously was not enough. Thank you, Mike.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

No, unfortunately we don't have a slovak speaking teacher. Our teachers have a fair level of english which they may sometimes use in class when things get difficult. But for the most part, the method has been created in such a way that students learn in a natural way in French.
We already had students with the CADIVI in the past, so we know that the procedure can be quite complicated. Actually we are already in contact with this student. He received a quote from us. We informed Oscar that we ask CADIVI students to pay us at least the two first week of study in oder to have a cover in case they are not able to attend our courses and inform us at the last minute, which can generate fees from our side (pay the accommodation provider, one space blocked for the student that we cannot sell anymore, etc….) We proceeded in the same way with other CADIVI students and was fine for them…after they have started their courses we received the money, and refunded the two extra weeks paid.
Unfortunately we don't have evening courses.
Absence and course interruption: Registering for a course means that the student is committing herself to attend regularly. She cannot make any refund claims if she misses classes or if she decides to discontinue her course: *this excludes absence for proven medical reasons upon presentation of medical certificate.* She cannot claim any refund if she decides to stop her course: missed lessons cannot be made up for or refunded. No refund or make up lessons for courses that fall on a mandatory national holiday.
Student may be able to apply for a Visa "long séjour" with this package. French authorities will request an intensive course through the whole year but the student doesn't really need to do a 12 mponth intensive program, it's too much, but to comply with the requirements, we can issue an enrollment certificate for 12 months of intensive French and we will only bill you the package requested by the student of Intensive and Extensive French combination.
We will be glad to accept your Venezuelan student. The minimum required fee to issue his enrollment certificate and necessary documents is 30% of the total amount.
We can issue an enrollment confirmation letter to the student as requested for her scholarship program.
The office is open from 10am and the best time to visit the school is around 11am since it's the break and that the classrooms are open. Your student's friend would better feel the atmosphere of the school at this time! I hope this time will be convenient.
