REGISTRATION

If you wish to attend this staff week please follow these instructions:

We will open several level groups (A1/A2 to C1). In order to know exactly what your level is and to evaluate you all according to the same criteria, we ask you BEFORE COMPLETING THE QUESTIONNAIRE to take a test of French as a Foreign Language (FLE) online.

1) make this online test (about 45 minutes).

2) At the end of the test, your level will be communicated to you (A1-A2-B1-B2-C1-C2). Note it, and close the web page without registering on the site.

3) Complete this registration questionnaire: a question about your level will be asked, thank you to tick the appropriate box.

NOTE that you will not receive an automatic confirmation email. We will contact you to inform you of the outcome of your application.
