Conversation Courses

Please read through our conversation course descriptions to see which one is right for you. Please note that even at a Beginners level, some prior knowledge of French is required for these classes. Some students choose to do a conversation course as a supplement to another course, others simply do this kind of course on its own. A vous de choisir!


 

Begintermediate French Speaking Skills (A2)

Mondays from 2.00-3.30pm

If you would like to start putting some of what you have already learnt together in full sentences - out loud - then this is the course for you. It is designed for people who already have a fairly basic knowledge of the French language (roughly 250 hours of recent study) and who would like to start using it with confidence. In this class you will learn new vocab, and use it in a variety of situations and scenarios. We will also work on using your different tenses in spoken French. Would you also like to have fun? We do that too! This term discussion topics will include:

  • Key people in our lives – friends, family, neighbours, teachers, doctors and other service providers. What is our relationship with them? How would we describe them? What qualities to they have or should they have? Do they have flaws?
  • The region of Provence – what do we know about it? Why is it good to visit? Are there any local particularities?
  • Life in a small French town – how is it different to our own life? It is better or worse? Do we have knowledge already on this topic that we can share?
  • Good and bad habits – we’ve all got them. What are yours?

Time: Mondays 2.00-3.30pm (90 minutes)

Term 4 - Monday 14 October – Monday 2 December (8 weeks)
