Saint Joseph is a french-palestinian institution for the education of girls in Palestine. The aim of the school is to promote a well balance education both in academics and in upbringing.
In addition to the other languages, and since the founder is French, the study of the French language is an essential part of the subjects given in the school premises.
French , like any languages allows better communication, better understanding of other cultures and above all open doors for many careers like law, journalism, reporters ,communication officers …just to mention a few.
Having the goal of providing all the tools for a better life, the school collaborating closely with the Department for Cooperation and Cultural Affairs of the French Embassy, introduce the DELF system of examination
What is DELF?
DELF stands for Diploma in French Language Studies. It is a certification of the French language abilities for non-natives speakers and is administered by the International Center of French Studies and by the Ministry of education.
It is compose of four independent diplomas corresponding to the first four levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: A1, A2, B1, and B2.
We, at the school have the DELF PRIM for the primary level and the DELF SCOLAIRE for the secondary.
At each level, a series of examination evaluates the four communication skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. It is an experience different from the style of what they are used in the Palestinian system.
