French Intermediate Conversation (online course)

This course is currently unavailable for booking

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 is for you if you have attended three years of part-time study (or four years, but you feel that your speaking skills are still weak) and you can communicate in routine tasks requiring a direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters.

The intensive course will enable you to further practise and consolidate your language skills and give you confidence in speaking French.

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.
