We offer General French Courses at all levels of the CECR (Cadre Européen Commun de Référence)

Le CECRL (Cadre Européen Commun de Référence pour les Langues) est un référentiel de niveaux de compétence en langue mis en place par le Conseil de l'Europe. Il se présente sous la forme d'une grille qui répertorie et décrit les capacités langagières à chaque niveau des six que compte le cadre : A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 et C2
