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.

Conversational French Elementary 1 – Evenings

Mondays, 6-7.30am – £100 for 10 weeks (15 hours)

You have studied French at basic level and you are ready to start talking! This is the course for you: thanks to carefully designed exercises, your communicating skills will improve.

You can expect to learn more about the past and future tenses, whilst consolidating what you have already acquired.

We will be following a specific training programme, but this does not mean this will be definite and fixed: for me, it is important to follow the group’s needs, and adapt the course to your needs, rather than to what I have planned originally!

By the end of the course, you will have increased confidence with speaking and will be able to cope well with basic conversation, and you will be able to handle short newspaper articles etc…
