The Estelar French department offers high-quality classes that are designed to get students speaking. Our classes are dynamic, fun, and full of effective learning activities and conversation. Our teachers are native French speakers from France or Canada. We regularly train and observe teachers in order to ensure that our classes are the best in Guanacaste. Class sizes are small and students quickly feel comfortable, making it easy for students to develop new friendships and experience rapid progress in their French skills.
We offer classes for all ages! Anyone can learn French and now is the time to start!
Students can take classes year-round, whenever the school is open! Please click here to see the few holidays when we are closed.
Our Stellar Methodology
At Estelar, we believe that conversation is the best way to practice new material and gain fluency. We employ the communicative method, which means that students are encouraged to speak constantly – up to 80% of every class. Our classes are conducted entirely in French, unless it is absolutely necessary to give a brief explanation in Spanish or English. Teachers gently but consistently correct spoken errors, including pronunciation, so that students are understandable, fluent, and able to communicate with confidence.
Our classes are student-centered, fun, interactive, and effective! We believe in the importance of small class sizes which enable personalized, memorable, and high-quality instruction. There is a maximum of 10 students per class to ensure that each person has plenty of time to speak, ask questions, and receive personal attention. Classes are dynamic, lively, entertaining, and carefully designed to guarantee that every student grasps the concepts and advances their speaking abilities in a fun and interesting way.
