Why learn French ?
More than 300 million people speak French on five continents. The OIF, an international organization of French-speaking countries, gathers 88 members of States and governments. French is the 2nd most widely learned language after English and the 5th most spoken in the World.
Knowing and speaking French is a real asset on the international Job Market and a real career changer as it is the language of Tourism, Cuisine, Fashion, Theater, Dance, Visual arts, and Architecture… Alongside fabulous writers and philosophers.
But learning and speaking French is a pleasure in itself with a rich background and access to multiple cultures. And we’re looking forward to speak it with you !
How does it work ?
In Alliance française de Lucknow we use the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) which is a guideline to describe the achievements of learners of foreign languages.
Levels A1 & A2 are beginners, B1 & B2 are advanced and C1 & C2 are experts. A native speaker in French will have a level C2, while B1 is oftentimes the level demanded to go study or work in a French-speaking country.
How long does it take ?
Learning a language is about competencies, not content. It means that what is important to be able to act and communicate in French is to exercise your skills, create neural connexions, and progressively get used to how the language works.
All levels do not demand the same time investment, since the difficulty progressively increases.
- A1 : 120 hours
- A2 : 120 hours
- B1 : 180 hours
- B2 : 240 hours
- C1 : 300 hours
For more convenience, we choose to divide our different courses into different sublevels of 60 hours each.
And we have created different formulas to fit the needs you may have, like weekend classes, intensive classes, crash and super-crash courses… Please contact us for more information about it.
