The course is delivered predominantly through the medium of French and you will take part in discussions on a number of different topics.The aim of the course is to help you develop your spoken French and enjoyment is key.

The first part of the class is taken up with general conversation confidently using a variety of tenses. We talk about what you have done in the previous week and any upcoming plans you may have.You can choose a topic of general interest to you such as differences between French and British culture, recommended films, programmes, plays and books, favourite cuisine, gardening news or current affairs.You will be encouraged to ask questions, comment as well as describe.The conversation is led by the class.

The second half of the class is more structured and based around the French text book Le Nouvel Édito Niveau B1. You can buy copies of the textbook from me for £26.95.
Different themes are covered each week. The course book includes audio and video material, as well as reading matter of a journalistic nature. These are used as a springboard for further comments, discussions and comparisons. In the first term be will be discussing intergenerational living, the role of the concierge, communal gardens and dinner parties.
