lesson with teacher

DELF preparation course 

20 or 30 lessons of 45 minutes a week

This course is aimed at all students, from basic to advanced, who are preparing for the DELF exam. The Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française is an official diploma made up of standalone exams which exists for the four following levels of the Framework of Reference for Languages: (CEFRL): A1, A1, B1 and B2.

This course will enable you to learn the grammar, communicative competences and methodology for the relevant level of the diploma.

Morning timetable

Monday to Friday, 9 am to 12.20 pm (including a 20-minute break)
The DELF is made up of general exam papers that assess CEFRL competencies which have been the basis for all our syllabuses since 2001.
As such, students enrolled for the DELF are placed in classes that are open to students who are not studying for the exam. However, they regularly practise the written and oral papers of the DELF. The teaching department issues them with a written competency workbook. Their teacher corrects these regularly in order to track and check student progress.
This course includes intensive work in the form of regular mock exams used to assess progress in the four competences of the CEFRL (listening and reading comprehension, spoken and written production).


Afternoon timetable

Tuesday to Friday from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm.
For those who choose the 30-class course, in the afternoon, classes focus primarily on spoken production (guided discussion, role play, interactive activities, expressing a point of view based on starter text etc.) and listening comprehension (messages, reports, radio clips etc.).
Students are also familiarized with French culture and civilization in a relaxed atmosphere that is conducive to discussion and optimizes speaking.
