The focus of this course is to help you gain confidence in your speaking and listening skills whilst further discovering the French culture.

This course is designed to be a blended learning program that combines digital media with traditional classroom teaching.

  • The French equivalents to can, could, must, may, should.  Application: interact with the locals whilst shopping – at the supermarket, at the market, at the bakery, in a restaurant.

In the final class students will be encouraged to participate in an outing to a local French restaurant. This will be a fun cultural experience for all involved. This will be discussed with students at the first lesson.
