Want to pass government language tests or take your language skills to the next level? Then this series of French Intermediate classes is for you.

While French Intermediate Level A is a great way to improve your conversational skills, the main focus of the class is on achieving conversational skills that closely match the Federal government’s requirements for their Level A Oral Proficiency Test. French Intermediate Level A reinforces and builds upon the content and skills developed in our French Beginners Level 3 class. While reading and writing skills will be touched upon, you will focus on oral language skills.

For this course, you should be able to:

  • Give and ask directions
  • Use proper verbs to describe chores at work/home, etc.
  • Recount past/present/future events
  • Use work lingo in day-to-day applications
  • Describe people/objects/places

Learned grammatical concepts are put to use in a variety of conversation-based exercises that strengthen your comprehension and self-expression.

According to the Federal government’s website, “Level A is the minimum level of second language ability in oral proficiency for positions that require simple and repetitive use of the second language in routine work situations. A person speaking at this level can:

  • Ask and answer simple questions
  • Give simple instructions
  • Give uncomplicated directions relating to routine work situations
