How will the virtual classes work?

The class will work just like in a real classroom: with a teacher, a whiteboard, exercises to do, documents to listen to or read and discussions in French.

How to choose a level?

We are offering two different ability levels:

  • A2/B1 Intermediate
  • B2/C1 Advanced

Before choosing, be aware that the teacher will work on all 4 skills: oral production, written production, oral comprehension, written comprehension; and also: grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.

Therefore, the level you choose will depend on your objectives and your strengths. If you are unsure, you can take a free ability test on our school website: https://www.alpha-b.fr/test-de-niveau-de-francais/

We recommend that you use a computer with a set of headphones (for example, ones you might use with your phone). You can also use a phone or a tablet, but it is not as convenient.

2. Then, several minutes before the start of your first lesson, you will receive an invitation to join the virtual class.
