Our new timetable for courses starting in September will be available in a few weeks. If you submit any enquiries we will answer these as soon as the timetable is ready.

Intermediate French (Year 1)

A middle-ability, ‘O’ level/GCSE, or equivalent level, refresher course designed to revisit and extend your existing language skills in a sociable environment with learners of a similar ability level. You will have the opportunity to extend your vocabulary across a variety of topics, and to revise and deepen your knowledge of grammar, with a view to developing greater fluency and confidence in the language. We will also work on pronunciation to help you to communicate more effectively and confidently with others, and develop a greater understanding of the language as spoken by both peers and native speakers.

You will have either previously studied an ‘O’ level/GCSE French course at some point, or reached a similar linguistic level, and you may have some experience of conversing with other French-speaking adults in recent years. You are not expected to be proficient in all areas of the language at the start of this course, but wish to build on your existing
knowledge/experience. You may also have some experience of French life/travel, although this is not a prerequisite for the course. A sense of humour will, however, be essential!

* Important: this course is NOT designed for ‘AS’ or ‘A’ level equivalent ability learners – please see our Intermediate-Advanced French or Advanced French courses for higher ability/fluency classes.

There will be a wide variety of listening, speaking, reading and writing activities, and the classes will be conducted in a mixture of French and English, through a variety of activities and interactions with tutor and group members. This will include learning to read from various French language books and articles, and engaging in natural conversation withfellow learners. There is no formal assessment on this course.

You will need writing materials such as pen and paper or a notebook or folder to keep notes. There will be a very comprehensive FrenchEnglish dictionary available every lesson, but please feel free to bring your own references materials if you wish.

Currently no additional costs. There are no prescribed texts or workbooks to buy for this course, but as we progress you may decide to acquire course-related items for your own personal use or convenience. You will be able to discuss this with your tutor throughout the course.
