UNIVERSITY PREPARATION COURSE: At the end of this preparation course the students will pass the DELF exam. Every holder of the DELF B2 is exempt from taking additional language test when applying to French universities. We can assist students in preparing their application form for French University (on request / administration fees: 150€).

Notes

Examination fees (100 € per exam) set by the French national education are to be paid at the school and are entirely paid to the French administration. They may be subject to alteration.

Important information about the DELF courses

Since the DELF exam changed, students who do the DELF preparation are mixed with other students.

Since the beginning of 2008 all of our courses evolved in order to adapt as closely as possible to the concept developed by the CECR (Commune European Framework of Reference).
They encourage a dynamic and interactive teaching method (pédagogie active) which places students in practical situations where they have to communicate and exchange for a genuine overall progression in all skills.
The DELF course embraces that approach which prevails throughout all of our programs so that it may comply with the CECR recommendations. It only slightly stands out as it proposes more regular training to the DELF various examinations. However, students in the DELF program are regularly assessed by their teachers who tutor them individually.
They are evaluated through blank tests or extra assignments/homework in order to get intensive training for each part of the test in the DELF. Lastly, they will be offered the help they need with all the issues regarding the exams.

  • The examination takes place during the last week of the students’ stay. Depending on the exam date, the last week will be dedicated to final preparation for the exam (if the exam takes place at the end of the week) or to the correction of the exam (if the exam takes place at the beginning of the week).
  • At the time of registration, students are sent a level test. This should be returned as soon as possible.
  • Prior to departure, students are given a certificate from the school detailing the length of the course taken, the level achieved, and the teacher’s appraisal.
  • The registration fee set by the French national Education is 100€ per unit and must be paid upon arrival (fees may be subject to change).
  • The examinations may run over a period of three days.

Delf examination success rate

  • 2010 – 96%
  • 2011 – 95%
  • 2012 – 97%
  • 2013 – 97%
  • 2014 – 97%
  • 2015 – 98%
