Developed in 1975 and continually updated and improved, the CERAN methodology focuses on communication
and enables young learners to express themselves in the target language with greater confidence.
From morning to evening, students practice the target language with their classmates, teachers and supervisors, even outside the classroom during meals, activities and excursions. Non-stop practice!
A technique of reinforcement and assimilation of the language based on mutual listening between the trainer and the learner and repetition. Did you know that neuroscientific studies have shown that you have to repeat something at least5 times in order to remember it?
Every language has its own music, rhythm and intonation. This verbo-tonal method corrects students’ phonetic errors, improves pronunciation and reduces the influence of their mother tongue to enable better communication.
They summarize each lesson and are recorded for students to practice and use in different contexts.
CERAN Academy’s goal is to provide a global and personalized solution to all your child’s language training needs.
Our teams are present at every stage of your child’s project: whether it is to prepare your child’s arrival by discussing their needs and expectations, or to personally accompany your child during their stay at our campus.
28 lessons of 45 minutes / week (equivalent to 21 hours of classes), including speaking, reading, and comprehension lessons in the morning, while the afternoon is dedicated to writing lessons and projects in which the language is put into practice.
Vocabulary and grammar are taught through the practice of everyday situations such as introducing oneself, giving one’s opinion on current affairs, or the study of different topics which lead to multimedia presentations, exhibitions of paintings, photographs or drama performance.
It is possible to add extra individual lessons each day. 2, 4, 6 or 8 lessons more during the week in order to work on a specific difficulty, a gap, to prepare for a school exam or international tests such as Cambridge, TOEFL, DALF, etc.
