French Conversation (continued)
This course is designed as a one-hour per week guided conversation class for students at Intermediate levels (A2 to B1) allowing them to revise and consolidate their communicative skills (listening & speaking).
Being an Intermediate-level conversation class, this course is suitable for students who can communicate beyond GCSE level and who would like to brush up on existing skills and/or add oral practice to any other course they are already attending. The course will help students gain confidence in oral communication, improve their pronunciation and increase their vocabulary to tackle a range of communicative contexts pertinent to everyday life.
Materials will be designed depending on the needs of the group. Subjects for conversation will include familiar topics and topics of personal interest or pertinent to everyday life (work, accommodation, hobbies, outings, holidays), as well as current affairs and society & culture (French traditions, festivals, Francophonie, the Media, Science & Technology).
