What else do I need to know? Is there anything I need to provide?
You will need to access the internet outside the sessions. You could do this using a smart phone, tablet, laptop or a desk computer.
Course aim:
The course will help you speak the language correctly and confidently using idiomatic French and improve your knowledge of contemporary France
Course description:
The course is taught in a fun and friendly atmosphere by a native speaker who has many years of experience of teaching French to adults. The emphasis is on spoken French and there will be plenty of opportunities for you to engage in lively whole class or group conversations to describe and discuss current social, cultural and political issues based on the materials provided by the tutor, or materials you may want to contribute and share with the other learners. The materials consist mainly of French magazines and newspapers articles, TV news extracts or other audio or visual materials. The topics can be tailored to the learners' needs and interests on request. You will also develop your reading, listening and writing skills through a variety of stimulating activities.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Express my opinion and hold conversations on a fairly wide variety of topics with a level of fluency and spontaneity that makes communication possible without strain.
2. Understand standard speech spoken at a normal rate, and the essentials of most TV news and current affairs programmes.
3. Write clear detailed text on a range of subjects.
4. Understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics.
How will I learn?

We expect you to attend your classroom sessions and make time to do any required learning activities on your own.

The WEA tutor will use a range of teaching and learning activities and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning. Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.
