Whether you are working or looking for a job, we offer tailor-made business French courses with an experienced and qualified native French teacher. The quality of our online courses offer the same excellence during our stays. We will guide your progress in French through our authentic and immersive approach. Business French courses will help you to position yourself better within a French company and enable you to evolve serenely in a French-speaking environment. Our methodology will be based on three elements: written, oral and corporate culture.
Written expression and comprehension
We will accompany you in your learning of the French language to gain grammatical and conjugational points necessary for good written production. This means that writing professional reports or minutes will no longer hold any secrets for you. In addition, you will be able to grasp economic stakes when reading articles or documents regarding the business world.
But SLImmersion’s methogology is not limited to strengthening your writing expression, it will also allow you to apprehend better the reading thanks to the acquisition of a precise and relevant vocabulary related to the business world. If you are looking for a job, we will help you elaborate your Curriculum Vitae and write your cover letter.
But learning business French is not just about learning French, it’s about knowing how to react and take initiatives and all in the French language!
Oral expression and comprehension
Indeed, in addition to preparing you to write an outline in a meeting, we will prepare you to express yourself in a natural and authentic way in the professional environment. In your job in France or in a French company, you will have to negotiate, react quickly to a crisis situation or drive a project.
The courses will give you the keys to easily express yourself in a clear and concise way to be understood by everyone. This is especially true if you have to manage a French-speaking team. The courses will focus on developing confidence in speaking so that you can communicate and discuss with your colleagues or boss in a fluent and confident manner.
Roleplays will be organised to help you with the expression without embarrassment and with the utmost confidence. A work of comprehension will also be put in place to enable you to understand as well as possible the words you will hear in the professional context. Because understanding French is just as important as speaking it.
All this will enable you to evolve well in the French business world. But for SLImmersion, writing and speaking French is not enough, you have to live the French language!
The corporate culture in France
To live the French language, one needs to master the writing, the oral but especially the culture. In the world of work in France, there are some rules that need to be respected for a complete immersion. In addition to mastering the business French, we will give you the keys to understanding the French work culture.
For example, know how to address your colleagues, but especially your superiors, in a polite manner using the “vouvoiement”. Because, even if the hierarchy will not necessarily hold it against you as a foreigner, you will score points by using “vous” instead of “tu” when addressing your colleagues.
With the Business French course, you will master this rule as well as the main cultural codes in the French working world. This will allow you to be fully integrated into your work team and to promote your knowledge and skills to your colleagues and superiors.
So, would you like to perfect your business French?
