About this course

Folkestone

Do you want to speak French like a native speaker, build on your conversational skills as well as be able to gain a deeper cultural understanding? This French Advanced - Summer School is for you. The course is classroom based and follows on from our French Advanced course. Exchanging face to face with your tutor and other students will help you consolidate, expand and develop your skills further to communicate in Spanish with a near-native degree of fluency and accuracy.
Successful students will develop their skills further and should be able to:
• Exchange views confidently on a range of topical subjects. Take part confidently in a discussion with native speakers with a near native command of the language.
• Use language, vocabulary, idiomatic and colloquial expressions appropriate to the formality of the situation and subject and to the context and culture.
• Obtain information, ideas and opinions from a variety of sources. Extract required details fully and accurately. Deal with texts of a technical nature with the help of a dictionary or other reference source.
• Produce written texts for a variety of purposes. Modify language to communicate in ways appropriate to the context and relationship between writer and reader
Grammar will bridge gaps in knowledge.

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 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' 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 appropriate follow-on course is another Advanced course at a higher level or an Advanced Conversation course. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.

What do I need to join the course

Students should have completed French Advanced or studied the language for approximately 350 hours or have completed up to A level or have spent time an extended period of time in the country.
If you are unsure, please carry out our self-assessment test available on www.kentadulteducation.co.uk. 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.
