What is the course about?

This course aims to enable you to communicate in French in everyday situations. It will strengthen your knowledge and introduce new structures and vocabulary gradually. You will build up your confidence in all four skills with the emphasis on speaking and listening.

This is a live online course. You will need:
- Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
- A computer with microphone and camera is best (e.g. a PC/laptop/iMac/MacBook), or a tablet/iPad/smart phone/iPhone if you don't have a computer.
- Earphones/headphones/speakers.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.

What will we cover?

Topics: Personal identity, family, profession. Decribe your basic routine and leisure activities. Order drinks and snack. Ask for directions. Describe where you live. Likes and dislikes.

Grammar: present tense, positive, negative and interrogative forms, nouns, adjectives, demonstratives, possessives, articles.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- talk about yourself and ask others about themselves (name, nationality, job, family)
- tell the time
- describe broadly your routine and leisure activities
- ask and understand directions

Please note that the learning outcomes may vary depending on the general progress made by the students.
