Overview

The course is designed for those who have already done some French and wish to consolidate their knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. It is not an advanced course and the level of the work is pre-GCSE. The main language skills practised are listening, speaking and reading. The course adopts a topic based approach and is designed to encourage the learners to go beyond the simple transactional conversations and to express opinions. The course does not lead to a qualification and the intention of the lessons is to study a language in friendly, relaxed atmosphere. This course is designed for learners who already have some knowledge of French.

The French language covered would allow learners to extend their previous knowledge of vocabulary and grammar and allow them to hold a conversation in French on certain topics. The main language skills practised are listening, speaking and reading. A textbook is used as well as video clips available on language learning websites.
