Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

What opportunities will this course give me?

Students will be able to progress on to the French Year 2 course.

What will I be learning?

French Beginners lessons are held in a relaxed informal atmosphere. Students learn to cope in a variety of everyday situations commonly encountered on visits to France or other French speaking countries.

You will be able to converse in simple terms and cope with everyday situations such as asking the way, shopping, changing money, ordering snacks and drinks, asking for tourist information, booking into hotels and going to the garage/petrol station. Basic grammar will be covered as it arises.

A College Certificate will be awarded on request.

Why is this course for me?

A variety of teaching methods will be used including whole class, group work, team work, pair work, role play, games and using multi media resources. A course book will be used to supplement the course and help with simple grammar. Some homework will be set each week.

The four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing will be covered but the emphasis will be on speaking and listening.

What do I need to sign up?

There are no formal entry requirements in respect of this course; it is suitable for students with little or no knowledge of French.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Students will be responsible for the purchase of materials relevant to the course.

Please bring pen and paper/notebook to your classes.

If books/materials are required, you will be advised at the first class.
