French for Beginners Term 3

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 will 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. 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.
