French is the international language of fashion, theatre, cooking, architecture, art, and dance. Learning French offers access to great works of literature as well as films and songs. French is not a difficult language to learn. French is a good base for learning other languages such as Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Romanian as well as English since a significant percentage of English vocabulary is derived from the French language. French is both a working language and an official language of the European Union, the United Nations, UNESCO, NATO, the International Olympic Committee, the International Red Cross, and international courts. As a student, the ability to speak both English and French is an advantage in the international job market.
At Cordoba, Dubai, our tutoring service for IGCSE, GCSE, AS & A Levels, IB and AP French develop an ability to use the language effectively for purposes of practical communication. Our French tutoring is based on the linked language skills of listening, reading, speaking, and writing and these are built on as learners progress through their studies.

Although learning any new language is difficult, our French tutors in Dubai make it easy as a breeze. Our French tutoring content is framed on IGCSE pattern with inputs from IB and AP. The syllabus is organized around five broad topic areas which provide contexts for the acquisition of vocabulary and the study of grammar and structures. The topic relates to everyday activities, personal and social life, the world around us, the world of work, and the international world. Through the study of these topic areas, it is hoped, you will gain not only language skills but also insights into countries and communities where the French language is spoken.
Our tutors prepare the students by repeatedly practicing French language speaking, reading, and writing. As discussed earlier the IGCSE syllabus is divided into 5 topics. In the first topic, ‘Everyday Activities’, home, school, food, health, and fitness are discussed. Secondly, in ‘Personal and Social Life’, vocabulary is built by talking about self, family and personal relationships, holidays, and special occasions. ‘The World Around us’, explores hometown, local area, natural and made environment, people, places, and customs. ‘The World of Work’, discusses, continuing education, careers, and employment, language, and communication in the workplace. Lastly, ‘The International World’ section, talks about tourism at home and abroad, life in other countries and communities, world events, and issues. Our tutors allow teaching to be placed in a localized context, making it relevant in varying backgrounds.
