In this intensive French language course, there are 8 possible levels, with 6 -10 students per group (10 is a maximum which, for optimum effectiveness, should not be exceeded):
Beginner I, II - little or no knowledge of French
Intermediate I - IV - some knowledge and some speaking capability in French
Advanced I, II - a fair to good speaking capability in French

The student's level is determined on the first day by an individual audio-visual and written test. It can be adjusted during the session if required.

The age of students varies between 21 and 75 upward and all nationalities are represented.

Under 21, students can be accepted under certain circumstances with the provision that their maturity and earnestness can be vouched for by the parents. It should be noted that, with some young people, there may be the problem of the sustained effort and concentration required during a whole day at the Institut.
