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 to reinforce learning.
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. 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 appropriate follow-on courses can be either another French Intermediate Plus course or an Advanced course. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
What do I need to join the course
For those who can converse fairly easily in predictable situation or did French GCSE or O level some time ago. Also for those who perhaps go to France quite often but would like the confidence to have conversations beyond the basic every day situation.
Suitable for those who have done French to Intermediate Plus level and have the knowledge of the tenses and basic structure of the language and need fluency and conversation practice.
