You have no problem speaking French everyday at work or at school. However, writing in French is a different story. You wouldn’t mind receiving constructive criticism about your emails, letters, and reports. Writing skills tutoring offers you the opportunity to get feedback from a teacher by submitting texts by email. On the basis of the feedback you re-write the text until it is satisfactory. The emphasis of this approach lies in the individual needs of the participant, which of course can be quite varied.
If French is not your first language, you must have at least level B2 (according to the CEFR).
The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) provides a set of descriptors that can help you gauge your level of proficiency in any given language. To determine your current or target level, please download the PDF Levels of the Common European Framework of Reference.
