    Note: Following changes to the DELF exam, students preparing for the DELF will be mixed with other students. The school adapted their courses in 2008 to be in line with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). They place students in practical situations to encourage communication and discussion and improve their skills. The DELF exam preparation courses are taught using this method and meet the CEFR requirements whilst incorporating preparatory exercises for the DELF. The students are regularly assessed and teachers provide each student with individual support. Students take mock exams and have extra homework focusing on each aspect of the exam. The school staff will help the students with any on-going questions they may have about the DELF.
