French for Beginners – Term 2 at Paignton

If you have little or no experience of French this beginner’s course is the ideal start. As you progress you will gradually build language skills that relate to everyday situations and enable you to survive (and enjoy!) typical situations when on holiday or travelling in France.
The content of the course is likely to be as follows: Introducing yourself and your family, ordering and paying for food and drinks, asking simple questions, booking into a hotel or campsite, asking for and understanding simple directions etc All the time we will be looking to give you a taste for learning French, extend your vocabulary and build your confidence in speaking and understanding the language.

"I left the army in August 2016 after serving as a front-line medic for 7 years. I decided to visit the college to explore my options as I knew I wanted to pursue a career as a vet. I chose to study an Access to Higher Education course with pathways in Chemistry, Biology and Applied Science- alongside my GCSE maths and English. The staff at the college have been very supportive. Their industry experience and depth of knowledge has been invaluable to my journey. I recently had an interview at the University of Bristol and was offered a place at the School of Veterinary Sciences – one of only 6 in the UK. The college provided me with a stepping stone to my desired career."Rebecca Williams
