The Alliance Française de Cambridge offers classes aimed especially at children (11 years and over) who speak and understand French. Classes are open to all children bilingual in French, of UK school year 7 and above; there is no need to sit an exam.
The academic programme of these specialist classes aims to improve proficiency in spoken and written French. The resources used for study are authentic documents relating to French and Francophone culture, daily life and current affairs, similar to those used in French schools.
Grammar skills are also a priority. We aim to enhance students’ written and oral mastery of the language by studying and practising the various components of French grammar.
Classes are designed to develop the skills required for the DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française)*, in addition to meeting the requirements for British public exams (GCSE, A-level, IB). As an official exam centre for the DELF, the L’Alliance Française de Cambridge offers students the significant benefit of teachers who are also experienced and qualified examiners licensed by the examining body, the CIEP (Centre international d’études pédagogiques).
* The DELF is the official diploma certifying competence in French language, awarded by the French Ministère de l’éducation nationale, de l’enseignement supérieur et de la recherche (Ministry for Schools, Higher Education and Research). It permits holders whose schooling has been in other countries to study at French universities, among other benefits.
