French for Holidays

These classes are for travellers planning to visit France or French speaking countries, with little or no prior knowledge of the language. This course covers essential topics including ordering food and drinks, booking accommodations, and visiting tourist offices. Through interactive lessons and practical exercises, students will learn key phrases and vocabulary to have basic conversations in French.  

Stage 1 (September)

Topics covered in this level include: introducing oneself, (name, nationality, numbers, profession, and basic family information), ordering food and drink in a café, and booking a hotel room. The classes are aimed at complete beginners and it is assumed that participants have no knowledge of the language.

Stage 2 (January)

Being comfortable with basic greetings, introductions and the topics covered in Stage 1, students embarking on Stage 2 will be able to increase their confidence in dealing with more holiday situations as well as gaining a greater cultural understanding.

Key information

The lessons will comprise a range of activities including reading, listening and speaking. Two hour sessions take place every week. Each lesson contains a mix of reading, listening and speaking activities. You will sometimes work on your own, in pairs or in groups.

There is no exam but you will be informally assessed throughout the course.
