Languages (part time)
April 2023 (various dates - please enquire for the next available course)
We will study the intermediate and higher levels of French grammar, including reference to the subjunctive mood and the literary tense.
Themes and topics will come from French news media and other events happening in the Francophone world from French media written for French speakers in France, Canada, and other parts of the Francophone World.
Depending on the time of year, we will also look at Francophone culture and cultural events that happen in ‘la Francophonie’ at relevant times.
On completion students should be able to:
- Hold transactional conversations in French about various topics covered during the course and write some basic information and instructions.
- Understand most general things said to them in such conversations and transactions while being able to understand most written instructions.
This course is for anyone who has studied a considerable amount of French before (at least 40 hours tuition) and wishes to improve on their intermediate knowledge or polish their French making it more "French".
This is a non qualification course
This course is scheduled for two hours per week in the evening, Wednesdays 7pm-9pm (term time only). All students are expected to attend all of their timetabled sessions on time, unless prior arrangement has been made and agreed with their Tutor.
If a student arrives more than ten minutes late for class, they may be asked to leave. If a student is absent for three consecutive weeks without notice they will automatically be withdrawn from the course.
