Advanced 2 : Conversation, Grammar & Films

Tuesdays 8-9.30pm – £100 for 10 weeks (15 hours)

This group is suitable for people who have already a substantial knowledge of French, but wish to improve on their fluency.

This course will focus mainly on conversational skills, and you can expect the lessons to be conducted in French (though, on occasion, I might use English to quickly explain a finer grammar point!).

Various themes will be explored, thanks to different means: articles from the internet or from the French press will help gather vocabulary that will prove extremely useful for discussion, and, although grammar will not be formally explored, we will look at those aspects that you feel less confident about.

The course will help you feel more confident whilst discussing a number of topics that come up in conversation with friends, or with colleagues.

I will integrate short film extracts, as well as other cultural elements, in order to improve your fluency and develop more understanding of more colloquial French.

We will also explore trickier grammar points, such as the subjunctive, personal pronouns and relative pronouns.
