Learning unit contents
The classes are organised in half-levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
In each level, several skills are worked directly with the specific competency frameworks.
Those are grammar skills, written comprehension, oral comprehension and communication skills (written and oral expression).
Learning outcomes of the learning unit
At the end of each course module, the student will be able to perform language tasks specific to the level he has followed and to access the next half-level.
Prerequisite knowledge and skills
No prerequisite is needed.
The students who are full beginners in French will enter an A1-level group.
The other students will take a placement test before the beginning of the course which will enable a diagnosis of their knowledge of the French language. On this basis, they will enter a group which level fits them best.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The courses use stimulating and efficient methods: communication and interactive pedagogy, conversations and work in small groups, language laboratory and multimedia...
Mode of delivery (face-to-face ; distance-learning)
The course consists of 60 hours: 45 hours of in-class time and 15 hours of online work through the @lter platform.
Recommended or required readings
The notes will be provided by each teacher at the beginning of the module and/or at the beginning of each class.
Assessment methods and criteria
An assessment test will be organised after the 60-hours course.
The test is passed with a result of min. 10/20. The marks are distributed as follows: in-class time = 75% of the final mark + @lter online work = 25% of the final mark.
No work placement is planned.
All students have to take the placement test before the beginning of the course.
Only students who have received an international diploma in French as a foreign language (DELF-DALF, TCF, TEF), which cannot be prior to 2015, are exempted from the test.
