Comprehensive long-term programme

Our long-term French courses at our French school in Bordeaux, France, are aimed at adults who would like to enjoy a longer stay to study French in France at a highly competitive price. The programmes are designed for all levels, from beginners to advanced learners (A1 to B2).

A long-term, immersive stay allows you to progress in an entirely French-speaking environment. Whether you are preparing to enter a French university, settle in France, or have professional or personal objectives for learning French, this course is for you. This stay has the advantage of offering you the opportunity to progress in the French language and to discover the beautiful Bordeaux region.

To satisfy each student’s interests, the topics covered are defined by our teaching team and differ every week. These various subjects encourage discussion with other students who come from all over the world to learn French in France and in Bordeaux.

Content of French courses and workshops

The long-term course offers a programme with a set class of up to 15 students maximum; this small number allows for more student speaking time and individual attention.

TheFrench lessons within the long-term programme are accompanied by regular monitoring and support from the teaching team and manager. Our goal is to ensure that our student’s objectives are met and that real progress is made.

In the morning, students attend general French lessons, in which the four language skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening) are worked on in the same sequence. In the afternoon, our workshops allow students to work on more specific areas of the language. The different workshops on offer are:

  • The voice, theatre and phonetics workshopTo practice pronunciation and elicit the sounds of the French language more efficiently
    – Distinguish two similar sounds in French (homonyms)
    – Word pronunciation exercises in French
    – Reading and drama exercises: Working on voice, pronunciation and intonation
    – Dictations, differences between spoken and written French
    – Games, tongue twisters and improv theater to learn whilst having fun
  • The civilisation/living in France workshop To discover French culture, history, traditions, gastronomy and daily life in France and Bordeaux.
  • The grammar remediation workshop Targeted exercises designed according to the grammatical difficulties encountered by each student in the French class
  • The Games workshop Laughter is guaranteed through fun and entertaining games in this French course.

Thanks to the long-term French course, students will be stimulated to speak French on a daily basis and will have the confidence to speak in all formal or informal situations.
This French as a foreign language programme allows you to learn or strengthen your knowledge of grammar and phonetics, improve your knowledge of French and enrich your vocabulary.

This course can help prepare you for university entrance or applying for a job in France.
Our long-term French programme helps you to achieve your goals with regular monitoring and support, all whilst discovering the French culture and the Bordeaux region.

  • Loved it! a nice fun and chilled environment, where you meet knew people and discuss fun topics while improving your french language skill. Even though your're learning with other individuals, you still get a tailored experience according to your personal language level in small groups, which is worth the price.

Tienen unos metodos de aprendizaje muy buenos.No tan solo te ensenan francés, sino como utilizar la lengua y como aprenderla por tu cuenta.Las clases son muy divertidas y muy practicas.

  • Very nice people, good french teachers and nice place to learn a very difficult language:) I learn a lot in 9 weeks of french courses. Thank you very much!

    Paulina England
  • I come from Germany and did an intensive course at the New Deal Institute for three months during an exchange in Bordeaux. What makes New deal different from other schools is the friendly way the teachers treat the students, the flexible learning of French and the feeling that they have finally arrived. There I not only gained a lot of new experiences, but also made new friends. My French level slipped from A1 to B1. The intensive course was fun with French brought. So it was a pleasure to go there. New Deal also offers promotions that take place alongside class. When you arrive in Bordeaux, you not only quickly learn the language, you also get to know people, the culture and Bordeaux. I hope see you soon !!! Thank you for everything!

  • Very helpful french lessons in a small classroom environment. Great place to socialise with people who speak other languages and to improve your level of French.  

    Abigail Scotland
  • Great and very affordable environment to learn in! Great students, cool field trips over France, very very very friendly and engaging staff! Nicole was an amazing teacher, very engaged, patient, and really explained the nuances of French language! Oh and I can't forget Clara for communicating and arranging everything before and during my time at the Newdeal French institute. I learned a lot during my three weeks there and so will you if you have the desire. If France I could, I'd still be at there studying and Learn french in Bordeaux! Thanks all!

  • French professors put enough attention to students, it's not a problem to explain and answer on every of our question. Good atmosphere and the school in the center of Bordeaux is nice too, as well as the price is acceptable.

    Lucija Croatie
  • I arrived in France and Bordeaux with almost no french. Just basics. I went to Newdeal . Institute of French for 2 weeks to kickstart my French and it worked wonders. I definitely recommend more than 2 weeks if you have the time/money but it was super helpful to practice speaking French and developing sentence structure/responses. I learnt adjectives, past tense and how to make crepes! It feels more like a family and a home not a school of french. And the teachers adapt the lessons to what you want to learn. Couldn’t ask for more. 5 stars for me 😉

  • Sehr empfehlenswerte Schule in gut erreichbarer Lage. Alle Mitarbeiter waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

    Karsten Germany
  • NewDeal is a wonderful school for students wanting to come to Bordeaux temporarily or for those who live here and want to learn French. My husband and I have been at the school since last summer, and are very happy that we chose NewDeal. The schedules are flexible for those with families and jobs and they are happy to help you find what works for you. We couldn't be happier and are sad that our time at the school is coming to an end. We've had most of the French professors at the school, and are never unsatisfied. They all bring their own unique personalities and skills to the classroom, and we will miss them all dearly.

    Chris USA
  • Great teachers, great environment and great price ! I learned a lot in my three months at the school. Could not have asked for a better time, and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn French in Bordeaux.

    Natalia Canada
  • I learned French for 6 months at Newdeal and made incredible progress. All of the teachers are very professional, attentive and friendly as well as the other staff. What I liked most was that the people there were very humane and supportive. If one is looking for learning French in a friendly environment, Newdeal is the way to go.  I recomend it to everyone!

    Max Allemagne
  • J'ai suivi un cours de français pendant deux semaines à Newdeal Institut de Français et je suis très contente parce que les cours dans de petits groupes étaient excellent, variés et enrichissants. On s'y sent à l'aise et on peut apprendre beaucoup dans une ambiance vraiment agréable. Ecole de Français Absolument recommendable 🙂

    Marina Allemagne
  • Il corso è stato molto utile. Vivo in Francia da gennaio e non conoscevo una sola parola in francese. Mi è bastato un mese di corso ed ora riesco a comunicare con tutti e a farmi capire. Le insegnanti Joanna e Amandine sono state strepitose! Amandine mi ha aiutata a perfezionare il mio cv in francese per cercare lavoro e mi ha dato preziosi consigli su come approcciarmi a un colloquio di lavoro. Lo consiglio à tutti, non solo per il costo più che onesto, ma soprattutto per l'attenzione dedicata allo studente (classi di 12 persone al massimo). Sicuramente ci tornerò per perfezionare ancora il francese. Grazie!  🙂
