French: Pre-Intermediate

Print Page

Develop your skills and confidence in basic situations and learn more about the grammar of the French language with this pre-intermediate course.

All courses are sub-divided into Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3, each phase corresponding to one term of the academic year. 

The courses are progressive and, while students are welcome to enrol at any of the three starting points, they are advised to contact the college for information on topics already covered in the previous phase(s) before doing so.

Please note that this course does not run during the half term/ end of term breaks.
