French – Building on Basics

A few keen learners started the class in September 2021 as planned, before Covid-19 took over our lives, but we soon had to give up.

We started again in September 2022, on Friday morning at 10.15, lasting an hour and thirty minutes, with a coffee break. It is a class for false beginners, i.e. people who have a little knowledge of the language. The emphasis is on speaking and understanding oral French.

We are now moving into a class which will be called “building on basics”, same time same place. We will finish our learning of the present tense and soon move on to the past tenses. Don’t worry, not very complicated, but different to the English uses of the past tenses!

The details are as follows:

French Building on Basics class
Friday morning 10.15 to 11.45

Payable in block at the beginning of each half-term, about £3.00 per week.

We are using Facon de Parler 1; 4th edition, student’s book and activity book. (available on line, second hand), published by Hodder Education, but will be moving on to Facon de Parler 2. We will decide on which edition together at the beginning of term.
