French Conversation: Upper Intermediate

Foreign Language

This 10 week course is for students who already have a strong and confident command of the French language (beyond A level). It will tackle various topical issues from current affairs using relevant articles about French culture and society. Individual input will be welcome so that students can share their personal interests and there will be lots of opportunities to interact and debate.

Sometimes other activities like oral comprehensions, linguistic games, pair-work or songs might be introduced to break the routine.

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