Our Approach

Learning: A communicative and task-oriented approach.

The Alliance Française, under the aegis of the Institut Français and the Embassy of France in India, is part of a network of 23 Alliance Française centers in India. Our approach is learner-centric. Participants are encouraged to acquire oral and written communication skills, comprehension and expression skills, through communicative tasks. A variety of active learning strategies help develop skills which lead them progressively to become independent users of the language. The teaching processes include top-end technological aids such as Smart Boards and other audio-visual learning tools.
