Wednesdays 6-7.30pm – Â£135 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 may integrate short film extracts in order to improve your fluency and develop more understanding of more colloquial French – but will discuss this with the group beforehand.

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!
