Ecole Napoléon works in partnership with the CECR, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The CECR is a guideline established by the Council of Europe to define the mastery of a foreign language, such as French, according to various criteria. Since 2001 it is a reference in the field of learning and teaching French. At the École Napoléon all of our French classes are intended to have you progress and evolve within the levels of the CECR.

The CECR, in a few words : Learn, Teach, Evaluate.
