Courses

Although we are specialists in French language teaching, it is important for me that HVF offers courses in other domains.

FREE FRENCH CLASSES:

If you are interested in taking French classes with us for free, contact us by e-mail or by phone! We’ll try to find out how to fund your courses.

Funding : Where possible, if you are interested in one of our courses, regardless of whether you are artisan, farmer, tradesperson or employee, we will work together to find a way of getting your course funded either by the OCPA (Organisme Paritaire Collecteur Agréé) or by means of the CPF (Compte Personnel de Formation). This way, if you are eligible, you will have nothing to pay.

Setting up courses for your employees:

If your company has employees who wish to follow a course, we can set these courses up together and find a way of getting them funded.

We are looking for colleagues/ co-workers with particular abilities, who wish to participate constructively in our projects.

Concerning language lessons, if the course is not funded by the OCPA, we charge these rates.

Don’t hesitate to contact us for a quote.

French as a Foreign Language

1) Artisans

An efficient cooperation with the Chambre des Métiers et de l’Artisanat and the local councils has allowed us to create groups in the North -West (Bussière -Poitevine) and the South- East (Cussac et Saint-Mathieu) of the Haute Vienne.

We envisage spreading this experiment to other towns (Confolens, or why not Chateauponsac?) Doc 1 – Lettre invitation artisants du territoire – traduction en anglais

These lessons are entirely free for artisans!

Bussière-Poitevine : French as a Foreign Language 3 levels on Wednesdays.

Cussac : A group of beginners and advanced learners on Monday afternoons.

Saint – Mathieu : A group of beginners and intermediate learners On Friday afternoon.

Confolens:Lessons at the CCAS (Centre Communal d’action Sociale)
on Thursday afternoons. The dates are uncertain as we are still waiting for people to sign up.

2) For other professional groups (Tradespeople, freelancers, farmers, employees)

We also have the possibility to set up individual lessons at your home or by Skype for all types of professionals. These lessons can be funded in the scope of the Continued Professional Training scheme. (Formation Professionnelle Continue)

If you are a professional, an employee or even retired and you are interested in learning French to maximize your chances of a successful professional and social integration in our territory, contact us!

We will undertake the all formalities with your help.

3) The organization of lessons for your workers

As reflects our cooperation with the professional Handball club LH87 we can set up French as a Foreign Language lessons for your international staff.

We highlight once again our friendly and professional approach.

These lessons could be paid for by the OPCA. We will guide you in the setting up of these courses.

Speaking of other languages

What’s more, we work with a network of professionals who give us the possibility to offer other language courses (English, Spanish) and even homework help.

We hope to set up English lessons with a certified TEFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher from Britain, in or at a radius of 25km of Saint-Junien, from September 2017.

Any interested companies and employees can contact us and open groups which should logically be funded in the scope of the professional training scheme.

Future projects

We have a vision of the future. For us, this vision can be reached via original initiatives and by the acquisition of the know-how needed to stand up to a constantly changing world. We will also privilege human exchanges and good humour around projects adapted to our region.

Therefore, we would like to offer you a course from April to June 2017 over 4 afternoons “I can use my garden to produce biological vegetables”.

A new course programmed for the 6th May 2017 will be of interest to those who already have a solid knowledge of vegetable gardening but who wish to go further or to become more autonomous: “I can produce the plants for my vegetable patch“.
