Spoken in five continents and 53 countries, French is one of the most wide-spread languages in the world and, according to a study by Natixis, it is also the language of the future. If a major in French will help make your other major “go global,” and open the door to increased career prospects beyond the United States, the Diplômes de français professionnel will give you the accreditation necessary to make these prospects a reality.
Recognized by companies and organizations worldwide and adapted to the modern business and cultural world, the Diplômes de français professionnel will enable you to demonstrate the level of competency required by your future employers. They will also allow you to connect with international and French-speaking professionals and will help you, therefore, on your path to becoming a successful global citizen.
The Diplômes de français professionnel are certifications designed and offered by the Paris Ile-de-France Chamber of Commerce and Industry, aimed at certifying your French oral and written communication skills in the following professional fields:
These diplomas are calibrated to coincide with the different levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) developed by the Council of Europe, with diplomas ranging from level elementary (A2) to proficient (C2).
Candidates obtain a diploma upon completion of an exam. This exam is conceived based on real-life professional situations and is adapted to today’s economy.
To prepare for the exam, students will be offered, depending on interest expressed, study skill workshops or individual sessions. They will also be given practice exams to take.
