About the Course, Paroles de FLE {Français Langue Etrangère} niveau B2

Unlike the other two MOOCs mentioned on this blog, this one is not directed at any French exam per se, as focus surrounds helping you to perfect your French and understand the French language better. In other words, guiding you towards true autonomy, a key element of language learning.

The third edition of this MOOC, will enable you to improve your French skills on the four competences of the CEFR and to carry out a reflective practice in a context of enriching exchanges throughout the 6 weeks of the course. The structure of the course revolves around the development of listening strategies to better perceive the subtleties of the language and grasp the implicit.

In fact, you will pursue two main objectives:

  1.  Better understanding oral French in different situations (examples: a conversation, a television report, etc.). You will be able to interact and train with other French speakers on MOOC exchange areas;
