During the French Transition Year course in February to May we would like to offer the opportunity for your son to undertake the challenge of being awarded a qualification by the French government.
The course is known as the Diplôme d'Études en Langue Française, or D.E.L.F. This diploma is an internationally recognized certificate offered by the French Education Ministry. It incorporates the four areas of language learning: Oral, Listening, Reading and Writing. After having completed the course material with their class teacher, the students who successfully pass the exams will be awarded the international qualification (Level A2) by the Alliance Française Foundation.
The exam is optional but we would recommend that your son sit the exam as it builds on previous skills learned from the Junior Certificate in addition to bridging motivation towards the Leaving Certificate course.
This is the first year that this opportunity is being offered in CBC. We hope that you and your son will support this unique initiative.
Please fill out the permission slip below and return to us by Friday 8th February. We will be in touch regarding payment at a later date.
M. Neil Ferguson, Mlle. Kate Lorigan
