  • Is this course for you?

    You should have:

    • A high level of commitment to the learning
    • A love of France and its cultural aspects
    • A willingness to participate in class activities with peers and to complete more demanding homework tasks
    • A high level of confidence when speaking aloud in class in French
    • A willingness to embrace and fully develop grammar aspects
    • A willingness to share ideas, information and personal experiences about France in class
  • Required qualifications

    French Beginners 1 and 2 (or similar).

  • What skills will I develop?

    Learners will build on the skills and knowledge gained in Beginners 1 and 2, acquiring a greater breadth of vocabulary and grammar knowledge.

    Learners will use a balance of the four key elements of language learning: listening, speaking, reading and writing to develop their knowledge and abilities within the topic areas.

    • Listening comprehension tasks will be undertaken in class using CDs and video clips.
    • Speaking of the language will be achieved via pair work role plays, small group activities, games and directed questioning.
    • Reading comprehension tasks will be given in class (as well as for homework) and learners will also read aloud in class in French.
    • Writing of French will be practised and developed mainly through homework tasks (essential for language building, especially of vocabulary and grammatical structure).

    Learners will also develop their knowledge of French grammar rules (using nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives etc and verb tenses).

    Learners will be able to converse in French during holiday/business trips to France.

    Learners will gain knowledge on French cultural aspects e.g. food, festivals, music, cinema, TV programmes, geography via quizzes, news items, class activities, websites and video clips of French life.

    This knowledge will broaden their overall appreciation of France, its language and culture.

  • Careers

    Learners will be equipped and have the confidence to progress to the next level of learning – French Intermediate.

    Learners will also gain transferable skills useful to employers e.g. working in a team, social and communication skills, an understanding of English grammar, respect for others and overall increased confidence, as well as their acquired French language skills.

  • English and maths

    English: learners will develop verbal communication skills through class activities with peers and through interaction with tutor. English grammar points will be highlighted and developed by means of the use of corresponding French grammar.

    Maths: learners will develop confidence in maths through using numbers when asking/giving age, talking about numbers of family members, asking/giving prices and practising number skills via games such as bingo.

    Digital: learners will be able to use tablets, if they wish, to access the core course resource (BBC Talk French 1). Various websites will be used to enhance the learning and learners will watch video and YouTube clips and access online language games. Emails will be exchanged between tutor and learners for updates and queries.
