Online Preparation for SLE-Test of Oral Proficiency – Level B or C

In order to keep safe all our students and teachers, all AF Ottawa’s courses for Public service take place ONLINE until November 12 with high-quality e-learning applications.


This online group course prepares you to achieve the B or C levels of the test of oral proficiency for the government of Canada and focuses on five key components of the oral test: oral comprehension, conversation, oral production, communication strategies, and language accuracy.

This online preparation course is based on activities that are consistent with those found on the official tests.

If you have attempted this exam before without success, we can provide you with tips and methods that will help you overcome any obstacles you may have encountered in the past.

These online group courses are offered to advanced students or students who have completed level B1.2 for oral B and completed B1.6 level for oral C.

We are aware that leaving your position and finding yourself in a learning pattern, or preparing for an exam, can be particularly stressful. As a result, we attach a great importance to the psychological factors influencing the final results.
