The time you need to learn French language may also be influenced by your personal ability to learn a foreign language, such as you already learned another foreign language, your motivation is great or your native language is close to French.
What level do I need to take a French language test ?
Even if you are a beginner, you can prepare for the DELF A1, which show a first step of proficiency in French language. DELF exam is also available for A2, B1 and B2.
The DELF B1 is required to get the French nationality.
The DELF B2 is required to enter University in a francophone country.
If you are at level C1 or C2, then you have to prepare for the DALF exam.
Any non-native French speaker older than 16 years old can take the TCF (Test de connaissance du Français). This exam is the same for everyone, which means you don’t register for a level in advance. Your results in the 4 parts of the exam will determine your level.
Can I really improve my language skills with online tutoring ?
Yes of course, speaking a foreign language is the best way to learn it ! Beside, you will get feedback from a native speaker. As it is one-on-one courses, grammar and conjugation points will be based on your conversational mistakes. This personalization is much more effective than taking a group class. And you will get the chance to spend much more time speaking French during the course. The attention of your native teacher will be focused on your progress.
