Language tests

Every year foreign language tests are offered to all students from Grades 6 to 12.

German

Students who wish to do so can take the German language tests offered at the Goethe Institute in Paris. A session is organised at our school so that as many students as possible can participate (this avoids having to travel to Paris individually). As the cost of these tests is high, the Institution Saint Joseph and the Parents’ Association pay 2/3 of the cost (1/3 is at your expense, billed directly to the 2nd or 3rd trimester). The rules of the Goethe Institute are strict, the dates and times of these tests are imposed so that everyone takes the written test at the same time, it is therefore impossible for us to change them. Moreover, registrations are final one month before the actual date of the test, no cancellations can be made after this deadline. Your child’s German teacher will help them to choose the test that suits them best.

The results are usually sent within 6 to 8 weeks.

English

We offer St Jo students the opportunity to take the various levels of English language tests offered by Cambridge via the British Council. Sessions are organised within our school so that a maximum number of students can participate (this avoids having to travel to Paris individually). As the cost of these tests is high, the Institution Saint Joseph and the Parents’ Association pay 2/3 of the cost (1/3 is at your expense, billed directly to the 2nd or 3rd term, do not send a cheque at the time of enrolment). The Cambridge rules are strict, the dates and times of these tests are imposed so that everyone takes the written test at the same time in different countries (mainly on Saturday mornings and afternoons), it is therefore impossible for us to change them. Furthermore, registrations are final 2 months before the actual test date, no cancellations can be made after this period. Your child’s English teacher will guide them in choosing the test(s) that best suit them.

 

The results are usually sent within 4 to 6 weeks.

Spanish

In partnership with the Cervantes Institute, we offer our students the opportunity to take the DELE and SIELE tests. Sessions are organised at our school so that a maximum number of students can participate (this avoids having to travel to Paris individually). As the cost of these tests is high, the Institution Saint Joseph and the Parents’ Association pay 2/3 of the cost (1/3 is at your expense, billed directly to you in the 2nd or 3rd term). The rules of the Cervantes Institute are strict, the dates and times of these tests are imposed so that everyone takes the written test at the same time in different countries, so it is impossible for us to change them. Furthermore, registrations are final one month before the actual date of the test, and no cancellations can be made after this period has elapsed. Your child’s Spanish teacher will guide them in choosing the test that best suits them.

The DELE results are usually sent within 3 months.

SIELE results are given within 3 weeks on average.
