The DELF DALF classes are demanding classes which culminate in a series of 6 exams. The 6 exams (A1 to C2) span mastery levels of the language going from complete beginner to native. Passing the C1 level shows that a student can understand and function in a college class in France. Each exam is twice as hard as the preceding one. Passing exams with a high average above the A2 level requires regular and serious presence and participation to class as well as completion of a minimum of homework. At the C2 level, five spelling mistakes are heavily sanctioned.
Even though we know that French class will not and should not take precedence over regular high school homework and that students enjoy visiting with their old friends, we would like to make sure that our students register in the DELF DALF classes for reasons other than social. Teachers will take attendance, be prepared for class, collect and return work in a timely manner. We expect the following from the students registering for the classes;
- When a student attends class sporadically or does not come prepared on a regular basis or disrupts classes, we will notify the parents and request that this student not enroll in the class.
- Students will be on time, present with their material: a binder, loose leaf paper, homework and a pen or pencil to take notes.
- When students or their parents know that a student will be absent from class, the teacher should be notified via email or voice mail. Too many absences affect results on the exams!
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing your motivated French speaking student in one of our classes. Please note that there is a 3 percent credit card processing fee added to the cost of online payments. If you wish to avoid this fee, please choose the pay by cash or check option. You may then remit payment in the amount of $780. Your registration is not complete without payment, and students may not attend a class unless registration is complete.
