During the course you will study the basics of French, enough to ‘get by’ on a visit to France at the most basic standard. Depending on the time of year, the class will also look at French culture and cultural events that happen in France at relevant times.

On completion you should be able to:

  • hold very basic, transactional conversations in French and write some basic information and instructions
  • understand most general things said in conversations and transactions, and understand simple written instructions
  • begin to understand some aspects of the way the French conduct their daily lives and some facets of French culture.

This course is for anyone who has never studied French before or those in need of a refresher.

Non qualification course

This course is scheduled for two hours per week in the evening, Tuesdays 7-9pm (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 If a student is absent for three consecutive weeks without notice they will automatically be withdrawn from the course.

You could progress on to French Language for Improvers.
