About this course

Want to speak more French when in France and build on your basic skills? Then this short French Beginners Plus course is for you. This 10 week French course in Tunbridge Wells follows on from our French Beginners course or the French First and Further Steps. It is for anyone who wants to consolidate their knowledge of basic key phrases and vocabulary.

Successful students should be able to :
• Understand and exchange information about self, work and daily routine
• Express likes and dislikes including hobbies
• Understand and exchange information about past holidays
• Follow simple instructions
• Understand announcements and extract information from e-mails etc.

Basic French grammar will be taught and students will also gain an insight into the French culture. 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 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.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student's starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited at the end of the course to monitor and record progress. The tutor will 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 appropriate follow-on course is a longer Beginners Plus course or an intermediate course. The tutor will be able to advise or check

What do I need to join the course

Students need to have completed one of our French Beginners courses, 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.
For anybody who has attended Beginners courses and is looking to improve the practical speaking and listening skills needed to cope with day to day scenarios when travelling and socialising in France.
If you are unsure carry out our self-assessment test available on The assessment provides a score to help you chose the best course for you. If still unsure, speak to us or to a Curriculum Leader.
