Course Description

Foundation French Language 2 is a communicative course aimed at developing your understanding and production of the language at CEFR level A1/A2. The course is composed of 2 classes per week. Each class is made up of a Self Study part and a live tutorial on the Blackboard Collaborate platform (Learn). The Self Study part allows you to start working through the course material independently using a textbook and to prepare for the live session with your tutor and classmates. The latter will give you the opportunity to consolidate your understanding and your use of new linguistic content. Focusing on Listening and Speaking skills, it will give you the opportunity to practise the language with your peers (in small activity groups) on a variety of everyday topics such as introducing yourself, talking about your past experiences, describing another person, talking about your family, your work or your personal projects.
