Learn French


It will always be useful to know how to speak and write French, even after you leave France. 300 million people speak French around the world, and in nearly 30 countries, French is an official language, either by law or in practice.

French is also the language of diplomacy: it is one of the works and official languages of the UN and many international organisations such as the European Union and the Red Cross.

In France, there are over 1,400 higher education programmes in English. So you don't have to learn French to complete your studies in France and obtain a degree. Nonetheless, even if you are taking courses in English, you will still be living in France. Speaking French, at least to some extent, enables you to more easily integrate your community and to enjoy your stay even more.


Study Connect Nepal offers French courses adapted for all levels. These courses allow one to use French in everyday situations while studying, travelling or living in France or French-speaking countries.

* Please note that the timing depends on the level and on the availability. For more information, please contact the reception.

Graduate Record Examinations

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is designed to evaluate your cognitive skills deemed necessary for higher education in USA and many other countries.

The GRE test consists of 3 parts:
  • General Test
  • Subjective Test
  • Writing Assessment
  • Qualifying Tests
The analytical Writing Assessment

The analytical Writing section tests your ability in critical thinking and analytical writing skills. It assesses your ability to articulate and support complex ideas, analyze and argument, and sustain a focused and coherent discussions.

A. You will be given a essay topic selected by the computer from the pool of topics. You are asked to respond to a particular issue, clearly presenting our view points on the issue and supporting your position with reasons and examples

B. It does not offer a choice of topics; the computer will present you with a single topic selected from the pool of topics. You are asked to critique the line of reasoning of an argument given in a brief passage, clearly pointing out the arguments strengths and weakness and supporting your position with reasons and examples.

The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement for many graduate schools in the United States,[1] in other English-speaking countries and for English-taught graduate and business programs world-wide. Created and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS) in 1949,[2] the exam aims to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing and critical thinking skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. The GRE General Test is offered as a computer-based, computer adaptive exam administered by selected qualified testing centers; however, paper-based exams are offered in areas of the world where computer-based testing is not available.
In Nepal, the computer-based GRE® revised General Test is offered and the cost is $190.

The overall testing time for the computer-based GRE® revised General Test is about three hours and 45 minutes. There are six sections with a 10-minute break following the third section.

1. An unidentified unscored section may be included and may appear in any order after the Analytical Writing section. It is not counted as part of your score.

2. An identified research section that is not scored may be included, and it is always at the end of the test.

The Analytical Writing section will always be first, while the other five sections may appear in any order.
Official scores will be sent to you and the score recipients you designate approximately 10 – 15 days after your test date. You can also view your scores online at My GRE approximately 10 – 15 days after your test date.

The Graduate Management Admission Test

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a computer-adaptive standardized test in mathematics and the English language for measuring aptitude to succeed academically in graduate business studies. Business schools use the test as a criterion for admission into graduate business administration programs (e.g. MBA, Master of Accountancy, etc.) throughout the world.

The GMAT consists of three main parts—the Analytical Writing Assessment, the Quantitative section, and the Verbal section. You have three and a half hours in which to take the exam, but plan for a total time of approximately four hours. The fee to take the Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) is US$250 worldwide.

After clicking the link you must enter the authorization number from the Unofficial Score Report to view the Official Score Report. You may view, download, or print your Official Score Report, which includes the AWA score. If you opted to receive your Official Score Report by mail, it will be sent to you approximately 20 calendar days after testing. Your scores are good for five years, so you have the ability to start your graduate studies now or down the road.

How does it work?

For each multiple-choice section of the GMAT exam, there is a large pool of potential questions ranging from a low to high level of difficulty. Each section of the test starts with a question of moderate difficulty. If you answer the first question correctly, the computer will usually give you a harder question. If you answer the first question incorrectly, your next question will be easier. This process will continue until you complete the section, at which point the computer will have an accurate assessment of your ability level in that subject area.

In a computer-adaptive test, only one question at a time is presented. Because the computer scores each question before selecting the next one, you may not skip, return to, or change your responses to previous questions.
