Course Description

You will acquire sufficient language skills for practical needs in simple everyday situations and develop your understanding of the culture of French speaking countries.

Who is this course for?

You may have studied French a long time ago and you may be a bit rusty now (one year’s part-time study or ‘rusty’ GCSE).

Learning and Teaching

The emphasis of the course is on participation therefore students are encouraged to actively participate in class through various forms of activities designed to stimulate communication.

Coursework and Assessment

For us, the most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.

To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved. Some of this has to be in a form that can be shown to external examiners so that we can be absolutely sure that standards are met across all courses and subjects.

The assessment of this course is divided into four parts to assess each of the following skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. It is designed to enhance what you have learnt during the course.

Additionally to the weekly sessions, we recommend that you spend some time between the lessons, revising and practising what has been done in class.
