This group is suitable for people who have studied French at school a long time ago or in evening classes, and who want to refresh their basic knowledge.
Primarily an activity-based course, with elements to allow the students to become more autonomous. By the end of the course, the students will be able to operate at basic level in every day tourist situations. We will also work on tenses (past, conditional) which will enable you to develop actual conversational skills.

This is the perfect sequel to a Beginner or Refresher course. Still more grammar extravaganza (ahem!) and conversation based on board games. We will perfect the art of talking about things past this term, and of things to come.
This evening class will bring you the confidence and the practice you need: it will have you talk in French in no time.
The informal way Lise teaches this class means that students quickly feel at ease and leave their inhibitions behind, enabling them to focus on learning through interactive and fun games and exercises.
In this course, the group will start by a quick revision of the basics (present, elementary vocabulary etc.), and will quickly move on to the past and the future tenses. Carefully selected exercises will mean that by the end of the course, everyone will feel able to talk about most subjects that interest them in French at a elementary level.
Classes are kept small in terms of size, as there is a maximum of 8 people per group. This ensures that everyone can participate in the course of the lesson and that no one can “hide”. It also helps create a friendly atmosphere, which is very conducive to learning.
Availability of the Elementary French conversation classes:
Evening: Tuesdays, 6-7.30pm (8 weeks)
Evening: Thursdays, 6-7.30pm (10 weeks)
Day: Mondays, 3-4.30pm (10 weeks)
Through the use of board games, the group shall improve on specific aspects of grammar that students find tricky at this level.
Past tense :
Introduction to the Conditional
Introduction to Pronouns
The use of board games and other facilitators for learning ensure that everyone is speaking in French, almost without realising it. The activities are carefully devised to ensure that new vocabulary and more complex grammar are acquired without ever getting to be too intimidating.
Vocabulary & knowledge
Every week, students receive a short list of words and structures studied in the course of the previous week. The group’s teacher starts each lesson by going over that new French vocabulary in class with the students who explain it into French: this process enables a deeper understanding allowing the students to memorise the newly acquired structures better, seemingly effortlessly.
