Course description

The DELF/DALF exam preparation course for adults in Montpellier offers intensive French training to get you ready for sitting the exam. In fact, this residential French language course provides you with the solid foundations that you need to pass an exam; you acquire all the general grammar basics as well as the rules for conjugation, vocabulary, sentence structure and phonetics. You will also learn about French culture, something which is vital when aiming to master French language. All of this is made easier by the fact that you are plunged into French language immersion in Montpellier.

During the DELF and DALF exam preparation courses for adults you will practice the 4 main language skills (listening and reading comprehension together with speaking and writing). All 4 skills will be assessed the day of the exam. During the specific French exam course, a qualified teacher will be there to help you practice as much as possible whilst also giving you all the exam techniques and methodology.

Each learner will be given a special DELF and DALF training manual with corrections to exercises so that you can practice by yourself after class at home. In addition, you will sit during our French immersion programs in France two mock exams, one in the middle and one at the end of the French course so that you are placed in real exam conditions. Our French immersion school in Montpellier also offers free sessions during which a specialised Teacher answers all your questions with regards the DELF and DALF exams and what exactly is involved.
