French Advanced

Course Details

There is plenty of opportunity for informal conversation in a friendly supportive atmosphere.  In addition, by reading and discussing articles from the French press and books on a range of topics from contemporary subjects to history, culture and the study of a region, you will develop your skills in speaking, reading and writing.  Regular grammar practice will help to underpin these skills.

The sessions will involve pair work, group work, whole class discussions in a relaxed and confidence building atmosphere.  Homework is given each week.

Information & Support

You will need good knowledge of the language (post A level standard) with broad vocabulary and be able to use the language at a high level.  You will be able to understand, with the help of a dictionary, articles from the French press.  Most of the basic grammar points should have been broached e.g. the subjunctive mood and conditonal tenses though they will be revised as required in class. 

What do I need to bring to the class?

Notebook and pen. You will work from photocopies.

Courses are run continually, and you will be able to join these to further develop your skills.
