Looking to pass government language tests or expand and improve your French conversational skills? Consider taking French Intermediate Level B.

While the class 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 B Oral Proficiency Test. French Intermediate Level B reinforces and builds upon the content and skills developed in our French Intermediate Level A 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:

  • Form simple sentences and understand the gist of a conversation at a normal speed - if it is about a familiar topic
  • Talk in the present, past and future tenses, and be able to discuss your daily routine, as well as the weather
  • Introduce yourself, and your family and friends

According to the Federal government’s website, “Level B is the minimum level of second language oral proficiency for positions that require departure from routine use of the second language. A person speaking at this level can:

  • Sustain a conversation on concrete topics
  • Report on actions taken
  • Give straightforward instructions to employees
  • Provide factual descriptions and explanations
