French Improvers follows on from our full 24 weeks Beginners course.  This course could also suit those individuals who achieved a GCSE grade C some years ago but have not practised the language for a while. Equally, those learners who were enrolled on an Improvers or an intermediate level 1 course at TRC before March 2020 would be advised to resume their studies at this level.

If you didn’t do the 10-week Improvers course we offered in Autumn 2021, you will need to have studied the language for at least 1 year in the past if you wish to join this existing class.

During the course you will develop the ability to deal with a range of situations in the language:

Each topic studied will help you to increase your fluency and confidence when using French. In addition, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the way of life in France and other French-speaking countries.

FRENCH HIGHER INTERMEDIATE (existing class)

This language course is ideal for those individuals who have studied the language for at least 3-4 years. It is also for those individuals with a GCSE grade A or 7+, achieved in recent years but without being able to study it since. If you were enrolled on a higher intermediate level at TRC before March 2020, you would also be advised to resume your studies at this level.

During the course you will develop the ability to deal with a range of situations in the language:

• Revision of topics studied in the first 10 weeks (Autumn 2021 course)
• Problem solving whilst travelling in France or another French-speaking country
• Culture – customs and traditions

The course will give you the chance to study more French grammar and will further develop your fluency to use the language in some complex situations. This will help you to maintain more fluent conversations with French speakers. You will also be learning more about France as a country (eg. customs and traditions) and about other French-speaking countries.
