Take your French language skills to the next level!

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
