About the course “Préparer et Réussir le DELF B2 et le DALF C1”
If you are interested in studying in France or currently applying to French universities, you will realise that a B2 or C1 level in french is indispensable for your application.
And that is not all. If you are interested in applying for a job or an internship in a french speaking country or company this is a good certificate to have.
More and more recruiters like to see a French-language certification on a CV, because fluency in French is required in the professional environment of many French-speaking countries and is an added value in others.
Level B2, intermediate level, guarantees a good command of the language, both written and oral, understanding and production. That’s why it’s the minimum level required to join a French-language university.
Level C1 proves that you have an advanced level and that the use of the language is no longer difficult.
All the subjects that are proposed to you during this preparation course for the exams (DELF) level B2(DALF) level C1, are very close to those of the CIEP, the organisation that is responsible for these exams.
