Every week I replace what I imagined was French, but was actually 'Franglais', with idiomatic French. Whilst this takes time, every week I feel more confident that I will speak much better French and have much better vocabulary when I next am in France.

Review by SOTERIS GEORGALLIS / (Posted on 20/03/2019)
A well planned and delivered course which enabled students to increase their vocabulary and understanding of French grammar. Practical exercises were a key feature of the lessons.

The work covered this term was far more complex than in previous terms. Verbs and tenses were taught in far greater detail and applied in practical situations. This was taught with skill and patience. The Course Tutor supported the learning with appropriate resources and backed this up with extra help for individuals as they needed it. She showed good sense humour and was able to produce a safe learning environment every lesson. Practical talking and listening exercises supported the theory. All students were fully engaged in speaking to each other and practising the topics covered.
