Improve your French language skills!

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
