Background to Institut Fazel

I truly feel that anyone is the best at what they do when they do it with passion and above all, vision.  When work is done in this frame of mind it becomes a privilege to share this with others in your professional life – especially your colleagues and students.

Because of this atmosphere students and staff are able to reach their full potential.  Students and teachers exchange mutual experiences and competencies in the special, rare setting of Institut Fazel.  Indeed, Institut Fazel was created and built exactly with this as the main objective in mind.

Institut Fazel is unique in its core value of commitment to excellence in teaching. We offer tailor made courses adapted to each student for each hour of the course given.  This is underpinned by a unique pedagogy, a particular teaching method based on understanding human behaviour and applying this to the individual needs of the student.  Even administration and billing is adapted to individual requirements. Everyone at Institut Fazel is dedicated to this philosophy, and this is what makes us special.

I had the vision for this method of working and teaching when I was twelve years old.  I began to watch and listen to those around me, with the goal of understanding how language was really used, both oral and written, within a diverse cultural and linguistic context.  As a result of this, I noticed that most people, young or old, had great difficulty learning languages and took a great deal of time to learn to say hardly anything.

How can we help someone, wherever they are from, whatever their background, to be able to learn a language quickly, without stress, without pain, but with pleasure?

Because of this, I trained as a linguist and teacher. 

Later, I specialized in the field of ‘pedagogy’. 

For me, teaching a language represented more that simply placing letters side by side, and more than a simple grammatical structure.

It was a diverse exchange and sharing of ideas.  It was a feeling of giving life to the words and a real meaning. With an understanding of your own language and additional  languages, anyone is able to achieve excellence in the professional world.

This vision became a reality 23 years ago.

Currently Institut Fazel has 25 teachers and 2 assistants.  It has a renowned international reputation thanks to the recommendations of the students who have studied here. They have benefitted learning a language by this unique method, created and perfected over more than 23 years.  The Institut Fazel immersion method allows you to learn a language rapidly.  It helps you to understand the language in a rational and sensitive way.  This method connects the mind (logic) and the heart (understanding).  This is why we are so successful achieving a 100% success rate.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Institut Fazel.
