Mock EXAMS

The mock exam will be assessed by DELF-accredited teachers and personal feedbacks will be provided individually at the end of the day. Our mock exam is great opportunity for you to correct the little mistakes that can make a big difference on the D-day.

The feedbacks from our skilled and experienced teachers will help you put all the chances on your side.

We will only accept a limited number of candidates in order to offer quality feedbacks to the candidates. 

Our mock sessions are open to everyone, whether you plan to take the real exam or simply want to assess your progress in the language.
