You are a A-Level student getting ready for your final exam this year ?
And you might be a little bit worried about your written or oral test.
Every year, alpha.b French school in Nice offers the possibility to our students to prepare for this exam twice a year.
It is an intensive course for 1 or 2 weeks, with afternoon lessons focused on the exam preparation.
In 2020 you can choose between :

The Spring session would be the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in a French environnement just before your final weeks of school and your exam.

Who is teaching this course ?
Alpha.b has been teaching the A-Level preparation course for many years now and our teachers are specialized in this course.
All our teachers of French are university graduates. They speak several languages and many of them have achieved a university diploma in a second field, giving them a wide range of skills.
Rebecca, a former intern, was part of a course during the afternoon and here is her testimonials :
I spent an afternoon lesson with a group of students preparing for their A-Level exams. This particular lesson was led by Sandrine, who was engaging, encouraging and energetic, and focused on the use of opinion phrases. Expressing your opinion is an essential skill for French A-Level in order to prove to the examiner that you are able to eloquently express your personal views. As you may already know, depending on the opinion phrase used, it is sometimes necessary to use the subjunctive mood instead of the indicative and so, there was also a discussion around this fundamental area of grammar.
One of the students in the class had already mastered this topic and was alternatively set a challenging reading comprehension exercise to do. The differentiation within the class ensured that each individual was properly stimulated, and it was great to see a variety of skills, necessary to master the language, (i.e. reading/listening/writing/speaking) within the same classroom.
Enjoy the immersion with a French family.
If you come to Nice to prepare for your final exam, you have to possibility to live with a host family.
Our host families are carefully selected and according to the Charte de Qualité by Label Qualité FLE, Eaquals and IALC.
