DELF TRAINING

 

What is the main benefit?

The DELF training program provides students with a focused path to improving their French quickly. The reason is this: the DELF exam test students on all four competencies (reading, writing, listening and speaking). Since most students are better at reading and writing and less confident with their listening and speaking, the focus is on bring ing up the level of the latter two competencies. 

At the end of the program, students report feeling much more confident in their French across the board.

Our track record

Our brave students have achieved have an average score of 87.4% between them.

While delighted with their results of course, all agree that the major benefit in preparing for and sitting the exam was the extreme improvement they saw in their French.

What would my level be?

The guide below is very general. We know everyone’s French learning history is different, so please contact us to discuss your exact level.

DELF A1

elementary level (approx. 2 years of French)

DELF A2

elementary level (approx. 3 years of French)

DELF B1

independent level (approx. 4 years of French)

DELF B2

independent level (approx. 5 years of French)
 

When are the classes?

Since the classes for the DELF are so small, we find it works best to set the time and day of the lesson in consultation with the group. If you are interested, please contact us and let us know if you have a preference for :

  • early morning (7am),
  • daytime, or
  • evening classes

We structure the program so that no classes are held during school holidays, nor in any week that contains a public holiday regardless of whether your class falls on the public holiday itself or not.

What sort of commitment is required?

Classes are an hour long and have a maximum of four students. In order to feel comfortable siting the exam, we recommend you do between one and two hours of homework per week. This homework will be comprised of exercises set from the textbook as well as independently working through a list of language points provided to you by Lingua Franca.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO PROGRAMS?

The 15-week program is suitable for students who already have a good level of French for the DELF level they have chosen. The 15-weeks is therefore ample time to learn about both the exam format and the content and to hone your skills in time for the exam. 

The 30-week exam is a better choice for people who are newer to French and/or undertaking the test for the first time. It is also the best way to move from one DELF level to another (for example from A1 to A2).

WHAT IS THE COST?

30-week program

$2050 (upfront payment)

15-WEEK PROGRAM

$1150 (upfront payment)
