On the certificate there will also be an indication of the number of classes you attended, the duration of your stay, the type of course and the names of your teachers.
On your request, it is possible to receive a certificate of your individual level. This certificate is awarded following a test constructed according the DELF model, measuring each of the 4 skills (listening comprehension, speaking, reading comprehension and writing). The oral skills are assessed in class by the teacher during the final week of the course, whereas the reading and writing skills are assessed by an individual test taken under exam conditions. The written test is marked by one of our teachers authorised by the CIEP to be a member of the jury of the DELF and according to the grading system used during the examination of the DELF.
Note: this individual certificate is not a degree.

I loved the intensive course so much because I felt like I could use all the vocabulary and grammar that I already knew, and use it to talk about everyday things and very important topics.
We learned new vocabulary which helps also with things we would normally talk about everday.
The teacher was very patient with us, the students, which made a comfortable environnement to talk.
An enormous percentage of my gratitude goes to my teacher, Sandrine, who is just awesome and amazing. A super experienced and fun teacher.
I studied French for 10 months at alpha-b. My stay was great thanks to alpha-b. To begin with, all the teachers were friendly. There were many opportunities to speak in class and as I am weakest at speaking the classes were really effective for me. The teachers always paid attention to my pronunciation. In addition, I learned not only about grammar, but also about culture, customs, slang and Nice. All this has been so beneficial for me. Thank you so much !
I stayed at alpha.b for 2 weeks and my experience was really positive. When I first wanted to register, there was a lot of courses to choose from, depending on the duration and my needs. The teaching methods are very dynamic. In my opinion, it was important that there was a maximum of 10 students per class. The activities that the school offers are varied and for all ages. I would definitely go back.
