French - Course details

Our part-time French courses focus on communication skills, with particular emphasis on developing your speaking skills. We will introduce you gradually to the new language and ensure that your speaking and reading skills develop through practice and reinforcement.  We include grammar in our course as an understanding of French grammar is important to help you understand the structures of the language. In our lessons, English is kept to a minimum to help you become accustomed to French. Our teachers will make sure that you feel at ease while still ensuring you are actively involved.

If you have studied or spoken French in the past and now wish to improve your speaking ability we will assess your competence so as to place you in the level best suited to your language ability.  Contact us for more information on our French language courses.

French - Certification

We offer courses at three levels, although the higher level courses are dependent on demand:

  • Level 1 (Beginner)
  • Level 2 (Elementary)
  • Level 3 (Pre-Intermediate).
Each level consists of two 40-hour modules. Completing the beginner’s level therefore takes 80 hours in total.  Each course is based on one module, and you receive a Certificate of Attendance on completing Module A, provided you attended at least 80% of the course. Participants who write the tests in the second module and successfully complete Module B obtain a Certificate of Competence.  The tests are only obligatory for those who want a certificate. Alternatively, those who would rather not do the tests receive a report as well as a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course.

French - Course duration and times

Each course runs for 40 hours.

The Level 1A classes are held on Saturday mornings from 08h30 to 12h30 and run over 10 weeks.There is the option of classes in the evenings during the week should sufficient students be interested. The 1B classes usually run on Saturday afternoons from 13h30 to 16h30 over 13.5 weeks.
