What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

This course is aimed at students who have studied the language for two years recently or have an equivalent level of the language.
It is also essential that you have some knowledge of basic grammar terminology such as: a verb, a noun and conjugation. It would be helpful if you had knowledge of more intermediate grammar terminology such as:conditional and pronouns.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

The course is based on the communicative approach:

- active students’ interaction
- emphasis on speaking and listening skills
- pair and group work
- role plays
- use of realia, pictures and authentic material
- use of audio-visual techniques when appropriate

Please note, students are expected to participate in oral classroom activities and to do some homework as and when required.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

Based on tutor's own material.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

I found this extra hour extremely useful in consolidating what I had learned in the lesson earlier each afternoon. [The tutor] is an excellent teacher who knows exactly how to communicate her knowledge of her subject and her very high standards, and my colleagues and I enjoyed her relaxed, cheerful, stimulating lessons very much.

Review by John (I don't have a nickname) / (Posted on 01/07/2015)
[The tutor] is a brilliant teacher. She always speaks in French but clearly with excellent contextual clues when necessary. She has helped me build my confidence in my ability to improve in my French language learning. She keeps a really good pace going throughout the lesson. Her preparation of resources and course material is thorough and well prepared. She helps us use moodle and every week she posts our course information on moodle with very interesting "extras" to give us flavours of French culture..... Songs/ films etc.
The course content has at times not been as relevant to us as a group of mostly retired people - eg applying for jobs - CVs, making telephone calls for application forms etc. we have raised this with [the tutor] and she says this is being reviewed.
