An internationally recognised level progression

What is the CEFRL?

Created by the Council of Europe, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages has become the international reference for learning and teaching European languages, as well as for assessment in language acquisition.
The CEFRL sets clear standards to be attained at successive stages of learning and for evaluating outcomes in an internationally comparable manner.

Each level in the CEFRL describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing. The CEFRL privileges can do descriptors of language acquisition.

Our level progression and teaching philosophy are in line with the recommendations and guidelines of the CEFRL.

The level progression and language acquisition of each student is validated by a certificate, issued by the Alliance Française de Brisbane, at completion of each broad level of the CEFRL.

Students are also encouraged to take the DELF (A1.1 to B2 levels)   and DALF tests (C1 and C2 levels). These diplomas can be taken twice a year at Alliance which is an official examination centre. These diploma are internationally recognised. They are designed and accredited by the French Department of Education.

    I love everything about AF!  It's been so much fun I really look forward to my lesson each week. The teachers are fabulous, and it's a real community feel. The annual French Festival is très fabuleux too.

    Learning at AF?
    It’s culturally immersing yourself in all things French – it’s like stepping inside a mini France when we’re there!

    After 5 months at Alliance, I  know more than I did after 4 years of French at school. It's interesting and challenging. The teachers are very helpful and understanding. I really look forward to my weekly classes!
