Under an agreement concluded with the Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF), l’École de langues offers preparatory workshops for French exams that are administered by the OQLF to determine eligibility for professional orders.
To practise your profession in Québec, you must demonstrate appropriate knowledge of French. If your professional order requires you to take a French examination and you are an advanced learner of French (for example, at level B2 of the CEFR or level QUM 6 of the École de langues of the Université de Montréal), these workshops are for you. They are designed for candidates for membership in all the professional orders and in the Organisme d’autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (OACIQ).
For further information about the OQLF examination procedure, consult the OQLF examination section: Infoguides on French language requirements in business, in commerce, and in the workplace.
Since the OQLF examinations for the professional orders have recently undergone significant changes, we offer workshops reflecting that: interactive workshops geared to the duties related to your professional field. Our objective is to help you improve your oral and written knowledge of the French language according to your needs, master the vocabulary related to your field and prepare you for the format of the examination you will take at the OQLF.
It should be noted that participation in these workshops does not guarantee passing the official exams given by the OQLF.
