Important information

Most language classes fill up quickly. However, your class could be cancelled if not enough people enrol.

The french language program follows the Common European Framework for Languages (CEFR), which has become the international reference for learning and teaching European languages, as well as assessing language acquisition. Students may wish to sit for the exam called DELF.

The CEFR is divided in 4 levels:

  • A1 level: 8 terms of Adult Education (French 1 – French for beginners – French 7) completed within around 96 hours: Students are able to introduce themselves, talk about their hobbies, explain where they live, describe relationships etc.
  • A2 level: 10 terms of Adult Education (French Intermediate), completed within around 120 hours: Students are able to communicate and exchange on familiar and habitual subjects.
  • B1 level: 10 terms of Adult Education (French Independent) completed within around 120 hours: Students are able to interact with ease in French on familiar topics with native speakers.
  • B1 second part to B2 level: Adult Education (French Conversation): Students are able to communicate with a degree of spontaneity and ease. It is also the level of language proficiency that most French universities require from undergraduate foreign students.
  • Please note that children must not attend this class unless it is a specified parent/child activity
