French for Improvers

This course is for those who have already completed a French beginners’ course or already have the basics of the French language and wish to improve their knowledge. The aim is for you to be able to deal with typical situations encountered when visiting France with greater confidence.

You will need to have already acquired the basic elements of the French language and have some idea about how words and tenses work in the language. You will learn more about the key structures of the French language and will have the opportunity to widen your existing vocabulary. You will also gain a deeper understanding of France and its people.

“I joined the College to study GCSEs, including Chemistry, English and Maths. I wanted to work in veterinary science, so I then progressed to a range of science-based A Levels, and after gaining A grades in all subjects, I was able to continue onto a Veterinary Science degree at Cambridge University. I can now look forward to a career in something I’m passionate about, and I can’t wait to get started.”James Hawkesby
