An advanced level group for learners with a high competency and level of understanding of the French language. If you want to practice your conversational French with others, as well as read, interpret and discuss extracts from French literature, articles, magazines, etc. then this could be the course for you! These sessions will be an opportunity to engage in lively discussion; listen to the stories and views of others; and chat informally on a wide range of topics covering a variety of interests. Students will also be encouraged to share their own experiences of French life and culture with the group in a relaxed and informal setting.
You may already have followed an Intermediate-Advanced level course, or have already reached a degree of linguistic competence equivalent to that of at least ‘AS’, possibly ‘A’ level. You should be able to hold your own (albeit, perhaps, with some errors) in a wide variety of conversational settings, comfortably using a range of grammatical structures, vocabulary and expressions across a variety of subject areas. You may also be a proficient reader of French, and not daunted by French literary texts or other written material.
Classes will be conducted predominantly in French across a range of interests, developing existing skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, as well as translation/interpretation via articles, books, general conversation and both teacher and student-led group activities.
Writing materials, and some kind of folder to store photocopied sheets. If you wish to bring your own reference materials, you may do so, but there will be a large bilingual dictionary and some grammar reference
materials available at each session, for the use of all learners. Please bring along your sense of humour, too – you’ll need it!
Currently no additional costs, but as we progress, some of you may wish to purchase copies of any books or other publications that grab your interest. This can be discussed at a later date with your tutor.
A follow-on course – Advanced French (Year 2) – in line with demand.
