This frequency will be monitored by signing the student at the end of the tutorial.

Evaluation during the year:
Contrôles continus: Contrôles continus: two a year - in December and in the week before Easter. CCs will be required to test the skills and knowledge acquired by the student during the semester and the work done in class and individually. CCs will last about an hour and will essentially focus on grammar and lexical knowledge. The student is required to support both CCs. The good outcome of at least one of the two contrôles plus 70% of attendance entitles the student to take part in the writing for the part of the lexical and grammatical knowledge.
Examen blanc: one towards the end of the second half. This is simulation of the final exam. It serves to test the student for the partial test. EB's support does not give access to any bonus to the student. The EB will have a lifetime equal to the lifespan of a normal PPS.
