Mundo

BECOME PART OF THE QUÉBÉCOISE COMMUNITY IN BRAZIL

Learning French at EQ is like taking a trip to Quebec a few times a week, without crossing the border.

And do you know why this is amazing? Because a language is inseparable from the culture of its people.
So here:

We will be exploring the French language through themes that play a central role in Québécoise society, such as politics, sustainability, and quality of life.

Learning will take place through debate, the expression of opinions, the construction of ideas in the collective, practices that make up the essence of Québécoise society.

You will come into contact with authentic materials that are actually circulating in the various media and communications in Quebec.

With each lesson, you will expand your French vocabulary and immerse yourself a little more into the life, culture, and values of this society.

ABOUT THE COURSE

Communicative Approach

With a focus on real, effective communication in the language, our goal is for you to develop, from the very beginning, the skills of speaking, writing, listening, and reading in French.

OWN DIDACTIC MATERIAL

A learning journey together with didactic material designed to bring our students the essence of our approach.

SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS

Exercises, tests, and other materials are available online for students throughout the course. By the way, in case you want to warm up your engines before you start the course, we have released access to a part of the student portal for you to access right now! Check it out here.

TAILOR-MADE FOR BRAZILIANS

All courses were developed from the main difficulties encountered by Brazilians when learning French.

ASSESSMENTS IN SUPPORT OF LEARNING

Opportunities for you and your teacher to track your growth throughout and at the end of each level, through periodic evaluations.

CANADA FRENCH

An approach to the culture and the French spoken in Quebec. Each class will be an immersion in the French language, Quebec style.

INVESTMENT

Choose the modality that is most appropriate for you at this moment

IN MY TIME

Classes 1 or 2 times a week
(3h weekly)

If you dream of immigrating to Quebec or learning French but have little time available at the moment, this is the ideal modality.

By taking 3-hour classes 1-2 times a week at EQ, you can complete level B2 (required for immigration to Quebec) in 28 months!

You can plan immigration with time and study without rushing until then!

"SABADOU" WITH FRENCH

Class once a week, on Saturdays (4h per week)

This modality is also great for those who have less time available for study, but want to immigrate in less time, for example.

By taking 4-hour classes with us once a week, you can complete level B2 in 18 months! Just think: with 4 hours of dedication per week, in 1 year and a half you could be packing your bags for Quebec!

FRENCH MON AMOUR

Classes 2 times a week
(5h weekly)

If you want to learn French a little faster and be ready to immigrate, study in a French-speaking country or communicate confidently in French in a little more than a year, we recommend this modality.

By taking 2.5 hour classes, twice a week, you can reach B2 level in just 15 months!

I REALLY WANT ONE INTENSIVE!

Classes 3 times a week
(7.5 hours a week)

This is the ideal modality for those who want to dive headfirst into an immigration, study, or work project in a French-speaking country, or simply learn as much French as possible in as little time as possible.

Our Intensive French course condenses all learning from beginner to intermediate (levels A1 to B2) into just 10 months of study. For those who have no time to waste to realize a dream and really want to prioritize it right now.

Questions you may be asking yourself:

We have both face-to-face and online classes, so you can choose the format that best suits your interests and routine. Currently, all classes are being held online during the Covid-19 pandemic, but we have our units in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo ready to return to face-to-face classes as soon as the situation improves.

The monthly fee of any school is proportional to the number of hours of classes held per month. At EQ you can choose to take 7:30, 5h, 4h, or 3h classes each week. Since we propose a faster study pace, you will study more hours per week and, as a consequence, learn faster than in other schools. The speed of our courses is accelerated to make the dream of immigration to Quebec as soon as possible.

When comparing the total investment to finish a level, a course at EQ is actually cheaper than the average school.

All our courses are offered on different days and times, depending on the weekly schedule (1, 2 or 3 times a week). We open classes throughout the year always at the end of each month. You can check the upcoming dates and modalities available for each level under the “classes” tab.

In the intensive course it is possible to reach the French level B2 required by the Québécois kébécois in immigration processes in 10 months. If you choose the other modalities, the time to reach level B2 ranges from 14 to 24 months.

EQ courses are open to everyone interested in learning French, whatever their motivation. As one of our major objectives is to boost immigration projects to Canada through language teaching, we teach the French spoken in the province of Quebec and we do it in a contextualized way, that is, always bringing the most relevant aspects of this society so that those who wish to immigrate can communicate fluently when arriving in the region. But beware! If you don’t want to immigrate, you can take the risk of getting infected with the Quebec energy and change your plans, as most of our students do 😉

Group classes take place in groups of up to 12 people and are taught by teachers who are native French speakers or have extensive experience abroad. In each lesson, a linguistic objective is proposed (verbs, grammar…) and a communicative objective (introducing yourself, asking someone out…).

The approach taken at Ecole Quebec is called the ‘communicative method’, and it emphasizes communication. We propose real-life situations in which you will be led to interact and use the language to communicate. The oral and written texts are authentic and come from Quebec contexts. Through them, we develop the 4 skills: speaking, writing, listening and reading in French.

We do not believe that error is synonymous with failure. On the contrary, mistakes are used in a positive way for development and learning. For the basic and intermediate levels we use our own didactic material, the Objectif Québec and for the advanced level we use the material Le français par thèmes – Niveau Avancé, in addition to a personalized curation of materials that the teacher does for each group, according to the interest and needs of the group.
