The program follows the Common European Framework for Languages (CEFR), which has become the international reference for learning and teaching European languages, as well as assessing language acquisition. Students may wish to seat for the exam called DELF.

The CEFR is divided in 4 levels:

A2 level (A2.1 to A2.4) (Adult Education French Intermediate – Encore du français ! Levels A2.1, A2.2 & A2.3), completed within around 130 hours: students are able to communicate and exchange on familiar and habitual subjects

B1 level (B1.1 to B1.7) (Adult Education French advanced – Toujours plus de français ! - Levels A2.4 & B1), completed within around 200 hours: students are able to interact with ease in French on familiar topics with native speakers

B2 level (Adult Education French conversation): students are able to communicate with a degree of spontaneity and ease. It is also the level of language proficiency that most French universities require from undergraduate foreign students
