About this course

Do you have a good level of fluency and accuracy in French ? Do you want to continue to improve and build on your conversational skills as well as be able to gain a deeper cultural understanding? This French Advanced Summer course is for you.
You will greatly benefit from being in a classroom with a limited number of students, from exchanging face to face with a supportive tutor and others as you practise speaking and enjoy enlarging your knowledge of the language.

After completing the course successful students should be able to:

• Exchange views confidently on a range of topical subjects. Take part confidently in a discussion with several 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 or other reference sources.
• 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 speaking and listening. Some reading and writing will also be included. Pronunciation and Francophone 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' starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to set targets. This will be revisited regularly 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. Please bring a note pad and paper. We suggest not to buy any material before the start of the course.

What can I do next?

There is a short “Advanced - Summer School” to follow-up and reinforce learning. After this, the next appropriate follow-on course is an “Advanced Plus” course. The tutor will be able to advise or check

What do I need to join the course

The course follows on from our French Intermediate Plus course and is for anyone who is looking to develop their fluency and accuracy to a near-native level in pronunciation/intonation, choice of vocabulary, grammar as well as idiomatic/colloquial expressions.
Students need to have attended a French Intermediate Plus course or have 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 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.
