French B1 is an intermediate French, consisting of practical language for work, school, and travel. It makes students more confident, fluent, and independent when speaking the French language.
Level B1, which is sometimes referred to as ‘Threshold’ or ‘Breakthrough’ stage, is the point at which a French speaker moves away from the most simplistic language usage and is able to cope with most of the situations they are likely to encounter when traveling around a French-speaking country.
In particular, a student at B1 level should be able to understand the key points from authentic speech, connect written phrases into simple text and start to communicate more complicated ideas. For example, it should be possible to describe events, experiences, expectations, ambitions, and hopes, while also giving their own opinion.
