Taking the DELF/DALF Exam in Paris: On arrival at the school, students just need to speak to our Head of Studies or his deputy (their office is just near the welcome area  when you enter the school) and ask for their help to register to take the DELF or the DALF exam in Paris.

It is important students ask for our help as soon as they arrive at the school as exam centres in Paris strongly recommend checking availability for the exam date selected a minimum of 8 weeks ahead.

DELF and DALF exam dates in Paris

Once the students have given our staff their chosen exam date, our colleagues will check with the exam centre if there are places available on the date requested and if not what other options there may be.

Once the exam centre has confirmed availability for the chosen exam date, our staff will support the students throughout the exam registration procedure, completing the registration form, etc.

Important – Taking the DELF/DALF Exam in Paris: Our colleagues will help as much as possible but it is the student’s responsibility to pay the exam fees as soon as the application form is completed to guarantee a place for the exam session date chosen as the exam centre will not save a place until they receive the payment from the student.

Once the registration form has been completed and exam fees paid, the exam centre will send the students the ‘convocation’ (notification to attend the exam).

The students need to make sure they attend the exam at the date and times specified in the ‘convocation’.
ACCORD School cannot be in any way held responsible for the students not attending the exam session booked.

We recommend students to ask the exam centre to send the final diploma to ACCORD as often students have returned to their home country and cannot return to the exam centre to collect it personally. ACCORD School will send the diploma by standard post to the address confirmed by the students once the diploma has been received at the school usually within 9 to 10 weeks of the exam taking place.
It is also possible to send the diploma via a courier service such as DHL for a fee of 170€.

How to choose a good French Language School

How to choose a good French Language School

We know that choosing a high quality French language school requires careful research as there are many important factors to consider before selecting a French language school in France and enrol in a French language course.

In this new information blog we recommend/ list some of the most important points you need to look at before you choose a French language school.

The number of years as a French Language school and its experience:
As you have probably seen or read in magazines dedicated to the language industry, language schools come and go. First of all, choosing a language school that has been operating for a number of years demonstrates that the language school has developed an experience and built a reputation as a professional organisation. Such a school knows how to provide the best possible experience in French language learning for its students.

ACCORD Paris has been running an all year round school for 35 years and has welcome over 130.000 students during that time. We pride ourselves on our long-standing reputation as one of the best French language schools in France.

How to select a very good French Language School

There are many language schools operating in France, but not all these schools adhere to stringent standards of quality.

“Qualité FLE” accreditation: the “label Qualité FLE” is the official Quality Accreditation for French as a Foreign Language. The Qualité FLE accreditation is awarded once the school has been inspected. The accreditation is based on a frame of work focusing on the five following areas:
– Training, teaching
– Teachers
– Welcome, support and guidance
– Premises, security, facilities
– Management

On the 28th of March 2007, after going through the inspection reports, the interministerial accreditation committee awarded fifteen schools the first official Quality Accreditation for French as a Foreign Language, and ACCORD was one of those very first schools to be accredited in France. The decree stating the creation of the Qualité FLE Accreditation was published on the 28th of December 2007 in the Official Journal of the French Republic.

In France, there are between 300 and 400 French langue learning centres and schools. With so many centres and schools to choose from, students and language service providers (education agents, travel agencies specialising in language stays, etc.) now have a major tool which helps them choose or recommend a language stay among a selection of the best centres: the “label Qualité FLE”.

ACCORD is also a member of Campus France, which is an advantage to any student requesting a visa.

Class size:
Some French Language schools are focused on opening classes with a high number of students and by doing so, they sacrifice the quality of teaching and learning. Squeezing too many students in a class means that the students do not get an adequate level of attention from the class teacher and can’t participate actively in class.

At ACCORD, we limit class size to a maximum of 14, and our average is 10. In classes dedicated to the preparation of the DELF exam, for example, the maximum per class is 6 students (average 4) and in our Business French lessons in mini-groups, the maximum is 3 students per class (average 2). For each course, we welcome the number of students to ensure that every learner receives the best level of attention whilst being in a dynamic learning environment.

How to choose a good French Language School

Teachers of French and Teaching method:
When looking for a French Language School, you must of course make sure about the quality of the teaching, whether the French teachers are fully qualified and also experienced in teaching adults if you are looking for an adult course, or juniors if you are looking for a summer course for young learners.

At ACCORD, our teachers are fully qualified in teaching French as a foreign language and are all university graduates. They also are very experienced teachers who create their own teaching material and constantly update the material to ensure their lessons are fresh, modern and dynamic.

At ACCORD, our teaching method is based on oral communication as we believe that by recreating real-life situations, students are able to develop their communication skills, and feel confident when speaking French outside the classroom environment.

Nationality mix:
One of the real key points of any quality French language school is the ability to provide a real culturally diverse mix of students.

At ACCORD we guarantee that we have no nationality over 12% at the school.
This figure is verified by the Label Qualité FLE accreditation body.

How to choose a good French Language School

Location and premises:
We recommend you choose a language school that is located in a city that is well connected by public transport and which offers students the maximum cultural opportunities such as visiting museums, historical monuments, going out to cafés and restaurants, all these important aspects enabling you to learn more about French Culture, History and Civilisation.

Coming to Paris, the world’s most visited city in the world allows you to enjoy a full educational, cultural and social experience. Booking a French language course in ACCORD Paris is the best way to improve your French language skills in the most beautiful city in the world!

After class, you can easily walk down to the Seine river with your classmates and enjoy an impromptu picnic in true Parisian style, or hop on one of the Bateaux Parisiens, opposite the Eiffel Tower, for a cruise down the river Seine and pass under all its famous bridges.
