|Previously known as Apprendre à parler français|
In the course Apprendre à parler français, different topics from everyday life will be discussed: travel, health and wellbeing, food, professions, etc. You will familiarise yourself with a broad range of vocabulary and the basic grammar will also be revised. This way, you will have all the necessary tools to use the language in practical contexts. The focus mainly lies on speaking and listening skills.
You have studied French before. You have learnt to use the present tense (indicatif présent) and you can introduce yourself in French and talk about your hobbies; yet you continually use the same words and you are unsure whether your pronunciation is correct. When you want to describe a person or picture, you feel that you know the words that are needed but have difficulty using them in a correct sentence. You know how to use past tenses to talk about past events, but you tend to use present tenses instead because you need too much time to form a passé composé. You have learnt to write in French and can understand simple sentences, but now you wish to practise speaking most of all. You want to cover as many ‘daily’ activities as possible: travelling in France, talking about professions, shopping, eating out, etc. You do not mind that French grammar is not taught systematically in this course. This course bridges “français pratique 2” and “français pratique 3”, especially for participants who did not learn French at school and who acquired a basic knowledge of French over a brief period of a couple of months.
There is a placement test and a final test.
Before registering, you take the online orientation test. This test refers you to the course that matches your level best. To have a full and accurate idea of your level, you will take an oral orientation test during the first session as well. Based on the outcome of this orientation test, you may be referred to another course because it is more suitable for you.
