Classroom course

This is a traditional classroom course. The teacher and students are present in the physical classroom at the Leiden location.

Course description

Participants learn the specific language use which they need in the most frequently occurring everyday situations. Various aspects of French life and French customs are covered. Participants study grammar and vocabulary and practice these skills in a communicative context. French is in principle the language of instruction. Participants are expected to prepare for the lessons at home (approximately two hours per lesson).

The course is concluded with a oral/written test. A certificate is awarded if the test is completed successfully and the participant has attended 80% of the lessons.
