French Year 3 - New Year - term 2
The course is taught in a fun and friendly atmosphere by a native speaker who has many years of experience of teaching French to adults. You will learn key vocabulary and idiomatic expressions encountered in authentic dialogues which not only contain valuable grammar but also present aspects of French everyday life, society and culture. A wide range of specific activities will help you focus on the language taught and retain it, whilst you develop your linguistic skills and confidence in speaking French.

The topics covered will include understanding weather bulletins and talking about leisure activities. You will also learn about describing French towns, what they offer for tourists and their inhabitants, and how current life in cities and in France in general is different from the past.

The emphasis is on spoken French, therefore there will be plenty of opportunities for you to speak the language during lively interactive lessons. The sessions will be fun and friendly, and you will find it easy to join in the online conversations.

Extracts of videos of French news, conversations etc. will be shown during the lessons and other documents will be used via Zoom during the online lessons.
As this course will be taught online via Zoom it is important that you also read the section 'Is there anything else I need to know?'
