PMDLangues is a registered language school based in Dordogne, catering for individuals, independent professionals and local companies in the South West of France and beyond.

Who can benefit from our professional language training courses  ?

Any company employee or self-employed worker in France is fully entitled to benefit from hours of subsidized training courses, depending on the nature of their work. The OPCA (Organisme Paritaire Collecteur Agrée) is the organisation which, according to the company's activity, will fund professionals' training courses for professionals, as individuals or a group of employees.

As PMDLangues is state-accredited and approved by these financing organisations, we can offer any French company, employee or independent worker a tailor made language course on site or by telephone, entirely funded by their OPCA, or other professional funding organisations (FAFIEC, AGEFICE) they would be affiliated to.

Our language training programmes :

Our professional language courses can be as 1to1 (on-site or by telephone) or for small groups of up to 6 people, but we can also offer a “blended learning” option with e-learning and face to face tutorials. Together, we decide on your language learning objectives , and establish a « training convention » or contract with the company, with a precise curriculum stating the means with which to achieve it.

Our programmes are tailored to the company's needs and expectations and we offer language courses in French, English, Spanish, German and Dutch or any other second language, from beginner to advanced levels.

We do also provide express language sessions of 30 minutes for daily telephone courses .

Why choose PMDLangues ?

We have been successfully offering language courses to French individuals and foreign newcomers in Dordogne for the last 6 years and have quickly developed our services to « non-French » company employees and « auto-entrepreneurs » wanting to improve their language skills. As a small structure, we are flexible and our geographical proximity (for companies based in the South West of France) means a valuable use of time and efforts for your staff or yourself.

More than a professional requirement, learning French or another language could make a real difference in your working life, social networking and personal integration . Our main goal is to help you achieve this with our training, enhancing your professional competences whilst working on the language frustrations you may currently experience as a non French speaker working in France.

Our bilingual teachers, whose mother tongue is always the target language, are competent and highly experienced. They are particularly attentive to your professional needs and requirements and are there to help you along the way. More than teaching you the language, they will give you the cultural knowledge to help you optimise your work and your life in France in the best possible way.
