  6. Practice Speaking: Engage in conversations with native speakers or language partners to improve your speaking skills. Practice discussing various topics, expressing opinions, and defending arguments in French.
  7. Learn Vocabulary and Grammar: Expand your vocabulary and review grammar rules regularly. Use flashcards, language apps, or textbooks to learn new words and practice grammar exercises.
  8. Take Practice Tests: Take practice tests specifically designed for the DELF B2 exam to familiarize yourself with the format, timing, and types of questions. Analyze your performance and identify areas that need improvement.
  9. Work on Time Management: Practice completing tasks within the allotted time for each section of the exam. Time management is crucial for success in the DELF B2 exam.
  10. Seek Feedback: Ask a teacher, tutor, or language partner to provide feedback on your language skills and areas for improvement. Constructive feedback can help you refine your language abilities.

Some testimonials from students who have prepared for the DELF B2 exam with us are below.

“ Achieving a pass grade on the DELF B2 examination was a prerequisite for my doctoral program. Having spent half a decade studying French in a North American high school, I was confident that self-study would suffice. However, the reality was more challenging than anticipated, and I found myself floundering on my first attempt with a disappointing score in the 40s. That's when I enlisted the help of Laure. With her in-depth expertise and professional demeanor, she swiftly discerned my weak points and devised an astute, targeted plan to help me overcome them. Her assignments were also well curated to improve my skills and rigorous enough to have me studying 7 hours a week to keep up. Although I hesitated initially at the cost, her lessons showed me that it was well worth it. In just eleven sessions, Laure remarkably helped me boost my score by approximately 30 points, culminating in a pass mark of 71.5 at my second attempt. My primary obstacle was my speaking ability, a skill I hadn't had the chance to hone in years. I also struggled with key grammatical structures vital for the exam. Laure didn't merely teach me how to succeed in the DELF exam, but she also substantially elevated my overall French language proficiency. Should I dare to take on the DELF C1 exam, I would unquestionably reach out to Laure without a second thought. For anyone endeavoring to excel in a French language examination or aspiring to enhance their French speaking abilities, Laure can definitely help."

" Laure has been an absolutely incredible teacher, and I’ve passed my B2 with 92%! That is a fantastic improvement on my mark in the B1, done prior to our lessons. I get a huge amount of practice in all areas in the lesson, and we did plenty of mock exams of all types. After the session I promptly receive a list of vocab I couldn’t remember or didn’t know, words I mispronounced and really good homework focused on issues that came up in the lesson or things I have asked to work on. I’m continuing with lessons even after the exam, which really speaks volumes about how much I enjoy them, and I’m so delighted to now be able to tackle novels I previously had to give up on. I’ve really seen a huge improvement in my French, and crucially also in my confidence with the language. With plenty of encouragement and a huge amount of skill, Laure has helped me exceed my expectations! "

“ I took lessons with Laure for 3 months in order to perfect my French and prepare for B2 which I had already tried to take that same year but which I had not succeed.
When I contacted Laure to start again, I no longer had any confidence in my skills and I lacked motivation.
Laure's lessons were a real boost for my French, Laure took the time to personalize her sessions according to my needs and to cover all the grammar that I did not used during my first attempt at the exam.
She gave me sound advice on how to structure my thoughts, we had extensive oral practice for it and she reviewed all my practice on written and comprehension as well as my various written tasks.
Laure was completely dedicated to my progress, without her enormous support, I would not have been able to pass the exam.
On the day of the exam, I was calm and confident, particularly for the oral, I significantly improved my mark and I was able to obtain an overall mark of 85%!
Which in all honesty is a miracle compared to what I had obtained before.
Thank you Laure!
I highly recommend Laure and her DELF preparation courses. “
