Content information

Starting level:

  • You studied French in secondary school, as a second or third language.
    • You can speak fluently, but you would like to extend your vocabulary and you would also like to revise a number of difficult, but important grammatical items (l'emploi des modes et des temps, les pronoms personnels ...).
    • When native speakers talk to you, you understand them, although you sometimes have problems when they speak (too) fast.
  • You do not often have the opportunity to get in touch with the French language, but you do need a good command of the language (work, studies, …).
  • Before registering, you take the online orientation test. This test refers you to the course that matches your level best. To have a full and accurate idea of your level, the first class defines this definitely by means of an oral orientation test which may still refer you to another level.


  • Speaking skills: the major objective of this course is communication. You overcome your fear of speaking in French and you learn to talk more correctly and more fluently.
  • Specific grammatical items: le subjonctif et le conditionnel, les pronoms personnels, les phrases introduites par si ...
