Our general French program is divided into many levels ranking from absolute elementary level to proficient. All levels are taught in accordance with the European Common Frame for Languages, which focuses on conversational French with emphasis on active student participation.
SPOTLIGHT ON THE B2 LEVEL
Our B2 level is divided into 6 sub-levels. (B2.1 – B2.2 – B2.3 – B2.4 – B2.5 – B2.6)
This table will help you understand what you will be able to do in French once you completed all 6 sub-levels:
You have a sufficient range of language to be able to give clear descriptions, express viewpoints on most general topics, without much conspicuous searching for words, using some complex sentence forms to do so.
You show a relatively high degree of grammatical control. You Do not make errors which cause misunderstanding, and you can correct most of your mistakes.
You can produce stretches of language with a fairly even tempo; although you can be hesitant as you search for patterns and expressions, there are few noticeably long pauses.
You can initiate discourse, take your turn when appropriate and end conversation when you need to, though you may not always do this elegantly. You can help the discussion along on familiar ground confirming comprehension, inviting others in, etc.
You can use a limited number of cohesive devices to link your utterances into clear, coherent discourse, though there may be some “jumpiness” in a long contribution.
B2 level students can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in their field of specialisation. They can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. They can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
Once you have followed allB2.1 – B2.2 – B2.3 – B2.4 – B2.5 – B2.6 classes or once you have reached and succeeded in the B2.6 you can seat for the DELF exam.
The DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the French language competency of candidates from outside France.
These diplomas are recognized by many institutions and universities around the world.
If you are interested in seating for those exams you can register for the November session:
