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).

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.
