French Conversation: Beginners (A0 & A1)


This course is designed for people with very little or no experience of French. 

It will introduce you to the language and culture, giving you the basic tools to communicate with others on your next visit to France. We will build up vocabulary around a theme and study some necessary basic grammar, using a lot of dialogues. Oral comprehensions and French songs will be used as well in the learning process.

The course will focus on pronunciation, speaking and interacting in French in different situations.

It will be conducted in a warm and friendly atmosphere by a native, fully-qualified and experienced French teacher, Vanessa from Monaco.
