Every course starts on Monday from April 2nd to August 20th, 2023 16-18 years old
Registrations for the LC preparation course are based on the level of the student. Students must reach a B1 or higher to be able to participate in this program. Once you have made your booking, you will receive the link for a test. Please focus on this test as it is important for us to place you in the correct class. Students who are not at this level can study our general course. This can be found on our website under 'General Course'. BMA will contact you to give you the results. There will be 25 lessons per week that will focus on the four core skills for the test: listening, reading, speaking, and writing. This develops students’ confidence to apply the methods and techniques necessary under exam conditions. During these sessions, the teacher will focus on oral communication, grammar, vocabulary as well as cultural topics depending on students’ needs and requirements. Students will study past exam papers, and practice in exam conditions under the guidance of a teacher. Teachers will provide constructive advice about exam preparation techniques including stress management. There will be some general course time as well to review the foundations of the French language, so students are more comfortable with speaking in day-to-day life whilst staying in Biarritz. There will also be a more relaxed day on Wednesdays, watching movies and doing group role-play activities. Below is an example of what a day will look like, 5 classes a day. The afternoons are off to focus on outdoor/cultural/social activities. Students can stay for more than a week, as each week there will be different LC tests being reviewed. All school materials are provided, so bring whatever other essentials you may need.
