This class will serve to prepare students to take the
exams up through B2. It will also serve as strong groundwork for students to enroll in a C1 (French DALF) preparation class, which is required to adequately prepare students to the specificities of this particular exam. The after school DELF/DALF programs will continue to be offered once a week on the FAIS campus for the students who are not able to enroll in the high school course.
