Class Levels

Beginner (plus Conversation class)

In the beginner class you will discover the beauty of the French language and be able to understand and use familiar everyday expressions to introduce yourself and others, talk about where you live, your family and your interests.

The lesson runs for 1 hour followed by a 30 minute conversation class offering opportunity to speak and interact in French.

Thursdays 3.45 - 5.15 pm

Intermediate (plus Conversation class)

If you have had some prior learning in French, the intermediate class is the level for you. You will learn to use different tenses so you can talk about events or activities in the past and the future. You will acquire more vocabulary on basic topics and develop your listening and speaking skills so that you are able to hold a conversation about subjects you are familiar with.

The session starts with a 30 minute conversation class offering opportunity to speak and interact in French, followed by a 1 hour lesson.

Thursdays 4.45 - 6.15pm

Advanced

If you have already studied the present and the past tenses (imparfait/passé composé) and want to take your French language skills to the next level, you can join the advanced class. You will continue to extend your knowledge of French grammar and learn how to express your opinion about different subjects and take part in class discussions.

Tuesdays 5.00 - 6.30pm

Conversation

Conversation is the skill people struggle with when they are learning a new language. That is why we have created our fun and useful conversation class. These classes are perfect for practising your French pronunciation, learning vocabulary, increasing your confidence in the language and improving your listening skills.

Tuesdays 4.00 - 5.00pm
