FRENCH FOR BEGINNERS CONVERSATIONAL

This course is designed for total beginners, people who have had unsuccessful experiences in the past or people who have learnt French at school and want to give it another go.  This course will take a gentle and gradual vocabulary learning approach.  Because we don't always have time to learn our vocabulary outside of class, we will be constantly reviewing previous lessons to make sure the vocabulary is acquired regularly.  This course is flexible and will respond to the needs of the members of the class.  Fun activities, pair work, mini whiteboards and online quizzes will be part of our learning.  By the end of this course, you will be able to pronounce the French alphabet, introduce yourself, ask and give directions and order in a cafe or restaurant.
