Our General French courses offer you the opportunity to learn French with qualified native French teachers in small class-groups (max. 15 students) in order to focus on communication, to practise French through a diverse range of activities and projects, to sit the European DELF exams in order to officially assess your level of French using internationally recognised standards and the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
