French for Improvers - Part-time


Course outline

This course is specifically designed for people who want to improve their basic knowledge of the French language. It is perfect for people that have followed a beginners course or if you are returning to the study of French.

Whatever your reason for learning French, this short course is great to enhance the basic language skills you have and to boost your confidence.   By the end of the course you will be able to communicate confidently on a basic level and not feel out of place in the country you are visiting.

You will develop essential speaking, listening, reading and writing skills as well as a solid understanding of the structure of the language.

The practical language skills you have already gained will be revised and refreshed as part of this course, so you will go over general greetings and how to communicate when out and about, ordering food and drinks, asking for directions and speaking confidently about your personal information such as your job, age and family.

As you progress you will cover grammar, punctuation and pronunciation, and will strengthen your speaking skills.

By the end of the course you will be able to maintain a conversation in French and will feel confident in doing so.
