Dear parents and students,
I send you this email regarding our French program at UMCA.
Your child, based on his knowledge of French, participates in different levels according to the Common Frame of References for Languages (CEFRL). The group work on four skills (Writing, Reading, Listening and Speaking) with a specific method and a very precise curriculum. Our goal is to give them the ability to have a conversation in French. We evaluate them not on their marks but on their progression.
Your child can take the DELF diploma to show the skills in French. It is optional and worldwide recognized.
The DELF (Diplôme d'Études en Langue Française) is an official diploma awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the French language competency of candidates from outside France.
The DELF is composed of four individual certificates that have been harmonized with the European standards corresponding to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CECRL).
Examinations are independent, and candidates can register for the examination of their choice. Each examination evaluates the four communication skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking.
An average grade of 50 out of 100 points for each part of the exam is required to obtain the DELF A1, A2, B1 and B2 diplomas. However, the highest is the mark, more valuable is the diploma. To prepare for the exam, there is a preparation book you can purchase.
