What the course is about
Level 2 will build upon the student’s beginner’s knowledge. The aim of the course will be to enable the student to converse more freely and in depth and to deal with everyday situations whether living in or visiting France. We will be looking at daily and work routines, talking about property and buying, describing places, getting to know people, being able to understand bits of newspapers, inviting French speaking guests over i.e aperitifs, lunch etc. More complex grammar and verbs will be covered as they arise….all this will be in direct conjunction with the French culture. Games will also be played. The idea of this course is to have fun whilst learning the French language and its culture.
Are there specific requirements for joining?
You will need to have a good basic knowledge of French, if possible having done the beginners’ course…. greetings, words of introduction, numbers to 100, knowing basic present verbs such as avoir, être and aller, telling the time, good listening skills, basic but solid vocab and a willingness to learn and a genuine liking of the French language and culture.

Students will be able to converse in simple terms and cope with everyday situations such as getting to know people, talking about people, daily life, work routine, describing a place, talking about property etc. More complex grammar such as different verb tenses will be covered as it arises.
