How will I be taught?
The focus will be on oral communication (speaking and listening) and 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 (role play and games etc). Homework set will provide an opportunity for self study including the use of online resources.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress. Tutors will mark homework and give written or verbal feedback.
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?
The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
What do I need to join the course
Students need to have learnt basic French in the past and/or be able to use basic phrases or words such as greetings, asking for and giving personal information (including hobbies), asking the way, ordering food and drink.
This course is for those who have learned the language for approximately 2 to 3 years or for those who studied it at school a long time ago (up to O level/GCSE standard) and feel they have forgotten it all. If you are unsure carry out our self-assessment test available on www.kentadulteducation.co.uk or speak to a Programme Manager.
