French Courses for Business in Newcastle

Designed and customised for the individual student’s needs, SIMON & SIMON’s business French courses are taught by a team of highly qualified native French speakers, who on average hold 15 years of experience.

A fun and rewarding experience

Many professionals and non-professionals alike have already benefited from a French language course with SIMON & SIMON, and we consistently receive positive feedback from our clients regarding the performance of our language teachers. Prior to starting a French Language course with SIMON & SIMON you will be sent a profile on your specific teacher’s previous experience and background.

Modern language teaching is now approached much differently to how you might remember learning languages in school; the experience is considered more fun and rewarding. We adopt a modern teaching approach known as The Communicative Approach at SIMON & SIMON, where the majority of your lesson will be conducted in French, making progress right from the start of your course. Soon you will have the confidence to use your French language skills in a range of social and business situations.

In depth: Our French Courses for Business in Newcastle

1:1 and Group French Courses in Newcastle

We can offer to run French Courses in Newcastle on either a 1:1 basis or as group sessions. Although group sessions can be good value, most of our clients choose 1:1 French language training. Group sessions would require the commitment of each individual student, and participant numbers should be kept at 6 or less. If you require faster progress, 1:1 French courses in Newcastle are more suitable as the lessons and course can be fully tailored to the individual’s specific strengths and weaknesses.

French Course Management

At SIMON & SIMON, each of our French language courses is overseen by one of our highly experienced multilingual Account Managers. On starting your French language course you will be equipped with various materials including a profile on your trainer, a Course Plan and course materials. You will also receive a Progress Report after every 40 hours of completed training.

French Course Locations & Schedules

Here at SIMON & SIMON we have arranged French Language Courses in a range of locations for our clients. We have a global network of language trainers, which means that we can organise a French Language Course in just about any major city in the UK, Europe, and beyond also. We can arrange your French language training within your own home, although most of our clients choose to run their Course at their offices, so as to minimise travel. Full time French Courses can also be arranged within your own offices or at a residential setting. Contact our offices regarding the locations we can offer.

Newcastle French Course Schedules

We can arrange French Courses in Newcastle all year round. Most of our students participate in no less than one 90-minute lesson per week, but many students will participate in more if work commitments allow. We run French Courses in Newcastle, Monday – Friday from 8am-6pm, although weekend courses can also be facilitated. Intensive French Language Courses are also available and can be run at the client’s premises or a residential centre in the UK or overseas. Intensive Courses consist of 6 hours of language learning a day, Monday to Friday.

French Course Content

Your French Language Course will be tailored around your previous experience and future goals; we will comprehensively asses your language level prior to the start of your course. Students may be complete novices who wish to develop a basic level of French, or they may be slightly more proficient in French and wish to be able to discuss various business topics such as banking or finance more fluently. No matter what your needs, you can be confident that our highly experienced French Language Trainers will work with you on a French Course that is tailored to your requirements, so that goals can be quickly met.

French Language Examination Courses

At SIMON & SIMON we can assist with the preparation for French language examinations, business or otherwise. Our students boast a passing rate of 95% for such examinations, proving the value of working with teachers whose experience is above average. SIMON & SIMON can help with the registration and administration of such exams, as well as issuing results certificates as a part of our service.

About French

French is a Romance language spoken as a first language by around 136 million people worldwide. A total of 500 million speak it as either a first, second, and foreign language. Moreover, some 200 million people learn French as a foreign language. French speaking communities are present in 56 countries and territories. Most native speakers of the language live in France, the rest live essentially in Canada, particularly Quebec, a minority in New Brunswick and Maine, as well as Belgium, Switzerland, Monaco, Luxembourg and Louisiana. Most second-language speakers of French live in Francophone Africa, arguably exceeding the number of native speakers.

About Newcastle

Newcastle upon Tyne is a city and metropolitan borough of Tyne and Wear, in North East England. Situated on the north bank of the River Tyne, the city developed in the area that was the location of the Roman settlement called Pons Aelius, though it owes its name to the castle built in 1080, by Robert II, Duke of Normandy, the eldest son of William the Conqueror.

The city grew as an important centre for the wool trade and it later became a major coal mining area. The port developed in the 16th century and, along with the shipyards lower down the river, was amongst the world’s largest shipbuilding and ship-repairing centres. These industries have since experienced severe decline and closure, and the city today is largely a business and cultural centre, with a particular reputation for nightlife.

Like most cities, Newcastle has a diverse cross section, from areas of poverty to areas of affluence. Among its main icons are Newcastle Brown Ale, a leading brand of beer, Newcastle United F.C., a Premier League team, and the Tyne Bridge. It has hosted the world’s most popular half marathon, the Great North Run, since it began in 1981.

The city is the twentieth most populous urban area in England; the larger Tyneside conurbation, of which Newcastle forms part, is the sixth most populous conurbation in the United Kingdom. Newcastle is a member of the English Core Cities Group and with Gateshead the Eurocities network of European cities.
