This course is aimed primarily at students (beginners to advanced) who want to reach the standard of French required to study in France.

Morning timetable

Monday to Friday, 9 am to 12.20 pm (including a 20-minute break)
Students are in a mixed class with other students but this course differs from others insofar as it incorporates DELF preparation.
Mornings are spent in general French classes which include writing and speaking activities. Work is focussed on learning grammar skills for the chosen level but also on improving written and spoken production. Activities also include text and audio document comprehension.
Learning is both varied and fun and is based on materials that prompt communication.

Afternoon timetable

Tuesday to Friday from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm. 
The afternoon timetable is for the 30-class course and applies also to other students registered in the school.

Course content also includes role play, interactive classroom activities as well as exchanging points of view on the basis of authentic documents.
