The exercises, dedicated to the technique of compte-rendu d'écoute and synthèse, as well as the preparation of the Diplôme de français des affaires C1, aim to develop oral and written comprehension and expression skills in the students.
By the end of the course, students are expected to reach C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)
