Evaluation and certificates

Continuous assessment

Each teacher gives regular tests, in different skills and several times a month, to focus with the students on their learning and to go back over what hasn't been understood and retained.

 

Internal certificate

Three times a year (December, April and June), students take an internal exam, for the purpose of assessing their level in structures of the language and in written and oral comprehension/expression. They then receive a certificate from the school, certifying their level in each of these areas according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. 

 

External certificate

The school is a registered examination centre for the Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF) through the CIEP (Ministry of National Education). This test is recognised on an international scale. It assesses your skills in comprehension and expression, and awards you a certificate valid for 2 years. We organise six sessions per year (February, April, June, July, October and December).

Students wishing to take the TCF are invited to register in our centre for the date that suits them. Two to three times in the year, we organise a session to prepare you for the TCF (included in the course price).
