Outline and Purpose of the Course This course is for students who have already studied French for one year or more. It will provide them with the opportunity to systematize and reinforce their knowledge of French vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and culture, and allow them to work further on their command of written and spoken French.

At the end of the year, students should be able to pass the intermediate French proficiency test designed by the French Ministry of Education (DELF A2 or B1), which adresses four language skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

The class will be conducted in French by a native speaker.
