Intermediate French Conversation

This French class is suitable for people who already have a solid basic vocabulary and a grasp of French grammar. It will improve fluency in conversation using stimulating and rewarding games and exercises.

It will also revisit various grammatical concepts through fact sheets, exercises and games. The weekly exercises will enable the students to ractise at home, while the games will allow them to repeat and learn in an informal, non-threatening way. It makes the whole rocess of learning verbs and ronouns a lot more appealing and almost effortless.

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 Intermediate French conversation classes:

  • Day: Thursdays, 10-11.30am
  • Evening: Wednesdays, 6-7.30pm


Through the use of board games, the group shall improve on specific aspects of grammar that students find tricky at this level.

  • Past tense revision (perfect, imperfect and pluperfect), with special emphasis on the different uses of the imperfect and passé composé
  • Conditional
  • Subjunctive
  • Pronouns


Using a French magazine, the group will focus every week on specific articles chosen by the students. This will introduce new vocabulary and more complex sentence structures, and help focus conversation on specific themes that are of interest to everyone in the group.

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.
