Intensive French Courses

French, one of the world’s most influential languages spoken at the UNO, NATO, the International Olympic Committee, the International Red Cross and other 29 countries. We live in a global society, and employers are often in need of bilingual employees who are able to communicate with clients in other countries. Being able to speak more than one language makes you much more marketable, and increases your chance of getting that dream job. With over 128million French speaking people in the world, think how many new friends you could potentially make. With the rapid growth of the internet, our planet is virtually getting smaller and smaller; by learning French you’re able to expand your circle and find new and interesting people to talk to and share experiences with.Learning a new skill helps you to reduce stress and provides a sense of accomplishment. Learning a foreign language can also have a positive effect on your mental abilities.

Intensive French Courses

HERE AND NOW is the product of a group of francophone (French speakers) from India who come from various walks of life and have created this institution.The courses have been designed by Psychologists keeping in mind the Psychology of each and every student. The classes are designed to give each and every individual a personality make over irrespective of the age.We focus on the Art of Learning where learning is not an obligation rather learning happens naturally. Our courses are designed in a way that they challenge the traditional classroom courses. We experiment with new technologies to create fun activities and better learning techniques. We use every possible method which can trigger the learning process be it Music, Movies or Social Network. Our services provide such joyful experiences to our students and clients that they take these experiences to their workplace, school, college and home.

We train at 6 different levels in French, ranging from beginner to professionals. viz. Level 1 (A1), Level 2 (A2), Level 3 (B1), Level 4 (B2), Level 5 (C1), and Level 6 (C2).

Thinking of French??? Then think of Here and Now, The French Institute!!! I'm honored to write a review for the institute that I respect and adore. Just thinking of my days at HERE and NOW brings a kind of joy that cannot be explained but only experienced. I'm more than just glad to have found it. I've learnt French at different institutes but at H&N I've experienced French. It is a very promising institute and assures improvement. I was too excited when students here were ready to converse in French and I was totally at ease. It's not like a few of the other institutes which claim to be professional and when it comes to conversation the students discourage themselves. The professors at Here and Now recognised my fervor for the language, my capability and not only encouraged but moulded me and taught me to live they way I always dreamt of. Here and Now has a very efficient team and I'm truly grateful to everyone of them. For all that I've gained and all that I'm today I owe to Monsieur Ruthran, PDG of H&N. Merci beaucoup =)

Here and Now is like home away from home. They treat you with lot of care and they help you to improve your French. There can never be a better institute than Here and Now for learning French. To my knowledge it's the first institute to help people get placed in well recognized companies and they not only help an individual to grow individually but also motivate them to reach greater heights.
