Testimonials

I have been a part of Alliance Française Baroda for both, offline as well as online sessions. I have to say, both have been equally well-detailed and super fun. There have been no glitches when it came to online classes. The best part about the curriculum is that it is organized in the most comprehensive way which helps students not only learn but also revise the concepts. The faculties are extremely passionate, friendly and up-to-date making it easy for the students to constantly stay motivated and enthusiastic. The best part about my lectures were the discussions and debates which helped all the learners to come across various ideas and expressions. Alliance Française Baroda also gives equal importance to co-curricular activities as it does to academics. This enables students to meet and interact with natives and experts of the language. Overall, I am so glad and proud that I am a part of Alliance Française Baroda. I would surely recommend it as the best place to learn French.

An online training programme for French language teachers: This Autumn University offers seven interesting modules suitable to teachers at different levels – junior school, higher secondary school and universities. These modules are conducted by experts with big professional and teaching experience. The current global circumstances encourage us to prepare for hybrid classes dealing with different thematics. The seven thematics offered this year are: Evaluation in a FLE classroom, Online teaching methodologies in FLE, Playful activities in FLE, FLE for kids, Using authentic documents in classroom teaching, Teaching FLE to big groups and

Today’s French culture and civilisation in FLE. These thematics, selected after consultation with teachers and teachers’ associations are very relevant and pertinent for French teachers, be it for teaching in schools or in universities. Every year, since 2015, an international training programme for French language teachers is organised in India by Institut Français. This university takes place with an outlook towards bringing the best expertise in the field of FLE (French as a foreign language) to the teachers dealing with different themes relevant in today’s teaching. The multiple-choice of topics offered during this Autumn University 2021 allows the teachers from different educational institutions, with different needs, to select the most suitable for their immediate requirements.
