There are currently no upcoming dates available for this course. Be the first to know when new dates are announced by joining the mailing list.

This course level, between intermediate and advanced, is for students who feel they need to brush up on some of the basic grammar points and gain confidence in their spoken French.

This course is mainly about reinforcing what you know and helping improve fluency and correctness.

This course will make extensive use of audio/visual materials and there will be ample opportunity to expand your active vocabulary.

You will have the opportunity to practise in small groups and act out role-play exercises you will encounter in French-speaking countries.

The content of the course will include a revision of different tenses such as preterite, perfect, imperfect and pluperfect, although the main aim of the course is the practice of the different skills.
