OUR FRENCH SCHOOL'S PEDAGOGY
The objective of our French school is the quick progression of our students. For this, we use recognised and adapted methods in our French courses.
FRENCH CLASSES BY LEVEL
There are 5 groups classes available based on CEFR levels. From beginner to advanced levels, our French classes are homogeneous for optimal progression.
Before arriving in Bordeaux the student undergoes a written evaluation; an oral interview on the day of arrival confirms their level and allows group assignment.
We organise group changes in agreement with the teaching team if the level does not correspond to the expectations of the student.
OUR FRENCH COURSES
Our French language courses are organised in restricted classes – between 8 and 10 students with a maximum of 12 participants for the à la carte courses. This is an important condition which allows students to participate actively. The atmosphere within the French classes is friendly, encouraging active exchange. Small groups provide individual, attentive monitring to each student.
THE CONTENT OF OUR FRENCH COURSES
Our French-language teachers use a variety of activities to motivate and encourage the class. The 4 skills (writing, reading, listening and speaking) are worked on in each French foreign language course. We use role-playing and situational games, as well as authentic written, audio or video materials. Alternating the work of different skills as well as the use of various media makes for a dynamic and stimulating learning environment. OurFrench teachers also favour the enojoyable pedagogical approach that drives learning.
Our method of teaching French has been recognised by the Teaching French as a Foreign Laguage Quality Certification. Our teachers use a pragmatic and effective action-based approach that aims to develop students’scommunication skills. We put theFrench language in its context of use to meet the concrete needs of students. Writing, grammar and phonetics are also an integral part of our training.
OUR FRENCH SCHOOL’S MATERIALS
Our school is equipped with the necessary materials and facilities to set up various activities: video, audio files, computer work.
Our programmes are organised by levels in accordance with the recommendations of the CECRL. Respect for the CEFR frame-work and syllabus allows for consistency that ensures constant progression. Our teachers use school-specific materials and textbooks selected by theteaching team.
Teachers are given the opportunity to adapt their course materials according to their class (creation of dedicated materials, taking into account specific requests) which allows to provide teaching solutions in line with the interests, profiles and needs of the students.
Our French school allows you to enjoy specific support and tutoring. The head-teacher is available to students who require advice or extra support for their learning. Teachers can offer an appropriate independent programme for students with specific needs or difficulties.
We set up weekly assessments (on Fridays) to ensure that the week’s classes are well understood and assimilated. It is an opportunity to see the progress made or, on the contrary, to identify difficulties and work on them independently.
At the end of the stay, a certificate indicating the level and the number of hours of lessons is given to the student.
Here's what they think...
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.
Súper buena experiencia y profesores bien calificados! Hacemos talleres y actividades diferentes que hacen el curso mucho más ameno. Para aprender francés, genial. Y buen precio.

- 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!
Was a wonderful experience for me. ı would advise to everyone who wants to learn French while feeling at home.
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.
Reception, pedagogy, quality of the courses and teachers, students from the 4 corners of the world, modern and pleasant premises, ease of access ... only positive points: I highly recommend. .... I really enjoyed my time here. The teachers were excellent and very welcoming. The whole atmosphere and culture were very positive. I'd be happy to come back in the future.United Kingdom
Excellente équipe, atmosphère chaleureuse et souriante, beau décor du centre de formation, bien située, de petits groupes, activités variées qui convenaient très bien à nos niveaux de français... Fortement recommandé !
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!
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 🙂
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.
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.
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!
When I arrived in France, I could not speak French, now, after 6 month , I have a good level of French, and the reason is nothing but great professors, professional management, friendly atmosphere, and their full support. Thanks to the Newdeal team !Iran
Sehr empfehlenswerte Schule in gut erreichbarer Lage. Alle Mitarbeiter waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
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.
The best place to come and learn french in France ! Teachers are great! The environment of the school of french is perfect! Totally recommended. The flexibility of when to start is great!
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 😉
Wonderful French school in Bordeaux! It is pedagogical, has great french teachers, and it is also very social - one feels welcome. I stayed for 4 weeks (12 hours of French) in small groups, and I would highly recommend it! Thank you for having me, and I would love to come back at some point! 🙂
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!Allemagne
Best language school ever !
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! 🙂
