Course description

Attending the special French classes for university preparation for teenagers means you will be able to develop your linguistic skills as well as prepare effectively for all parts of the exam with the aim to starting French university.

This class combines the standard course with the DELF B2 preparation course. The standard course ensures that you learn all the fundamentals of the language (grammar, lexic, phonetics and culture) by focusing on the four skills recommended by the CEFRL (Common European Framework of reference for languages: reading, listening, speaking and writing skills. You are thus given the basic languages skills needed for following a university course as well as the chance to enrich your knowledge of French culture and civilisation, which is also essential for passing the DELF B2 exam. This residential French course in France will plunge you directly into French society to better understand and use the language in context as often as possible.

The DELF B2 preparation course helps you to practice methods and techniques for sitting the exam, tips which are also useful for helping you to understand lectures, take down notes, ask questions, read specialised books…once you are at French university. A fully qualified teacher guides you every step of the way providing you with advice to help you pass your university preparation course.

You will have access to study manuals with corrections that are specially designed to help you pass the DELF B2; you will be able to use these books after classes for further improvement. You will also be given 2 mock exams so that you can pinpoint your strong and weak points before “D-Day”.

Should you have any further questions… Do not worry, there is a weekly DELF/DALF tutorial and a specialised Teacher of our French language school in Montpellier is available to answer all of your questions regarding the exam.

If you are looking for pathway programmes, we are pleased to offer our long term students administrative support to enrol in high School institutions.
