Our French 1.1 module is designed to give students the skills required to speak and understand basic French in everyday contexts.
Whether you have a basic grasp of the language, or whether you’re starting from scratch, this course aims to build on practical language skills that are essential to social and business contexts. In this module, students will be introduced to all the basic components of French grammar: articles, pronouns, adjectives, possessives, negative and interrogative forms, prepositions, and present tense of the indicative of -er, -ir and -re regular verbs and of some irregular verbs.
Topics will include: asking and giving personal information about yourself, your family, your daily routine and leisure activities, your studies, elements of time, alphabet, numbers using different contexts and describing your native town as well as describing people of your acquaintance. Students will be required to read and write simple texts and to interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help. Students will be able to understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type.
For total language immersion, classes are conducted in the target language as much as possible, and all of our French classes are taught by native speakers. Students will be required to communicate in French with other students in the class.
This module suitable for anyone who wishes to learn French for work or leisure purposes, or to develop their existing basic knowledge. No prior knowledge of French is necessary.
