This French course is aimed at people in Edinburgh with a good grasp of the language (from intermediate or B1). It provides a good mix of activities, both in terms of speaking and listening, aimed at developing your vocabulary and your understanding of rapidly spoken French. The integration of video material (films) allows you to get to grips with slang and less formal aspects of the language. We normally spend 3 sessions over a single film.Â
The first session involves watching the film (usually with English subtitles), followed by a discussion about the general themes explored in the movie. We also explore the film’s background (directors, script-writers, actors). ATTENTION: the first session usually starts earlier (typically at 7.30pm) to allow time for discussion after watching the film!
Then two further sessions include the study of extracts, with carefully designed exercises, followed by a discussion of the issues explored in the film – and beyond!
This course 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.
