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

You should have done two years of French recently or have an equivalent knowledge of the language (A2 level).

It is also essential that you have some knowledge of basic grammar terminology (e.g. verb, noun, 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?

Our courses are characterised by spoken interaction and communication. Typical activities include pair work, group work, role plays and games. A range of resources will be used to support your learning including presentations, hand-outs, and audio-visual material.

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

based on the tutor's own material.

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

French 2 upper: module 2. Please enrol on the next module as soon as possible as spaces cannot be guaranteed.

A love of language, of words, of the intricacies of grammar was instilled at an early age into Pascale as a young child, sitting at the back of ther mother's classroom, taking it all in. Her professional destiny was sealed... After setting up and delivering language courses in the private sector as well as government agencies and TV channels she was eager to enter the great community and the ethos of Adult Education. Pascale believes that it is both an enormous privilege and responsability to instill, foster and sustain a thirst for learning in a fun, safe and welcoming environment. Her secret ingredients are humour and energy.
