Course description

In our French language University preparation course for adults we teach you the French language and provide you with the skills required for exams (namely, the DELF, B2); you will learn university methods and techniques that are essential for attending classes and passing exams with flying colours.

In this way, the University preparation course helps to improve the 4 skills recommended by the CEFRL: Listening and reading comprehension as well as written and spoken communication. During the Standard French course you will revise all grammatical rules so as to master them to the best of your capabilities whilst also enriching your range of vocabulary and improve phonetics for better pronunciation. All of these capacities are required if you want to pass the DELF B2 exam and they will also help you to follow a university course. You will thus be prepared for university having acquired a good language level together with knowledge about French culture.

During the preparation course for the DELF B2 exam, you will be able to increase your chances for success thanks to personal guidance and a better understanding of methods and techniques required for the exam; which are also useful throughout your university cursus, for example when taking down notes during a university lecture or trying to understand specific language in various situations. Moreover, you will be given practical exercises in preparation courses for university to help put you in exam conditions. You will also sit two mock exams to help you see what you have learnt during our university preparation program and pinpoint any difficulties that need to be put right.

Learning how to work by yourself is essential for succeeding at university. In addition we use a study manual that is specifically designed to help you practice when preparing for the DELF B2 with examples of exercises and corrections together with homework that benefits students by complementing classroom learning.

There is a fully qualified teacher of our French language school in Montpellier at hand during the DELF B2 preparation course so as to optimize French-language learning.
