This is an online course delivered using Zoom, in real time with live interaction with your tutor and fellow learners.
This 10 hour French Beginners Plus Refresher course aims to refresh some of the essential language to get by on a visit and/or moving on onto a French Intermediate course but will remain fairly basic.
According to the needs and interests of the participants, the course will provide some opportunities to practice using simple sentences in everyday situation, such as, for example:
• exchange information about self, work and life
• express likes and dislikes / agreements and disagreements
• exchange information about past events
You will be given homework to reinforce classroom learning.
How will I be taught?
The emphasis on this course is on listening and speaking. The lesson focus on language that is required in authentic situations. To help you develop language skills the course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. You will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (role-play, games…). To ensure your progression, it is essential to attend on a regular basis. We also recommend that you spend 1 – 2 hrs each week doing private study as directed by your tutor.
With your tutor, you will monitor and record your progress on your learning plan (ILP)
What do I need to have with me?
The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Students will need to bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.
What can I do next?
There is a short “ French Beginners Plus - Summer School” to follow-up and reinforce learning. After this, the next appropriate follow-on course is an Intermediate course. The tutor or the Curriculum Leader will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
