Do you want to be able to use your French in a range of real life situations? This Intermediate course is for you. You will benefit from exchanging face to face with your supportive tutor and other students as you practise speaking in French and enjoying learning the language.
Successful students will be able to:
• Describe (people, places, situations, events etc) using the present, past of future tense
• Give and follow specific instructions
• Express an opinion and ideas in taking part in discussions
• Make comparisons
• Listen and respond to information from a range of sources (telephone messages, news headlines/public announcements, instructions, conversations)
• Deal with emergencies, simple problems and complaints
Grammar will be expanded. You will learn to use expressions and forms appropriate to the language using present, future and some past tenses. You will be given small amounts of homework (1 hour max) each week to reinforce classroom learning.
How will I be taught?
The focus will be on speaking and listening. Some reading and writing will also be included. Pronunciation and French culture are an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. Learners will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (ex role-play and games). Homework set will provide an opportunity for self-study to reinforce learning.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. You will record your starting point on your Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and set targets. You will revisit regularly during the course to monitor and record your progress. Tutors will feedback orally on homework.
What do I need to bring 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 “Intermediate - Summer School” to follow-up and reinforce learning and prepare to move to Intermediate Plus level in the Autumn. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
What do I need to join the course
For anybody who is looking to improve the practical speaking and listening skills needed to cope with day to day scenarios when travelling and socialising in French speaking countries.
This course follows on from our French Intermediate in 2019-20 but is not a strict repeat of the course. It is a consolidation and expansion course for learners at intermediate level. New and returning students are welcome to this course for those not yet ready to join an intermediate Plus level. Students need to either have completed one of our Intermediate courses or have studied GCSE (A/Cgrades) or have studied the language for approximately 150 hours and who can express themselves and understand simple information relating to personal, work or social matters.
If you are unsure, please carry out our self-assessment test available on www.kentadulteducation.co.uk or in our Centres. The assessment provides a score to help you chose the best course for you. If still unsure, please speak to us or to a Curriculum Leader.
