LA LANGUE FRANÇAISE - NIVEAU SUPÉRIEUR Pour ceux dont la connaissance de la langue (grammaire/vocabulaire, etc) est déjà profonde. Ce n’est pas la classe pour ceux qui espèrent bavarder en anglais ou ne rien dire. ON NE PARLERA QU’EN FRANÇAIS! On devra aussi être prêt à consacrer 1 ou 2 heures chaque semaine aux DEVOIRS! -soit la préparation d’un texte enregistré, soit le développement écrit d’un thème à discuter. On travaillera ensemble / en petits groupes selon le niveau des étudiants et en paires pour améliorer la conversation française. LE BUT du groupe est d’atteindre un niveau très haut de COMPREHENSION ÉCRITE ET ORALE en étudiant des textes authentiques.

French is Fun on Mondays
Broadstone Methodist Church Rooms - Lower Blandford Road, Broadstone, BH18 8DT

Mondays: 11:05am to 12:50pm

This is a lively and good humoured group in which members are helped to improve their use of French, in a relaxed atmosphere. We use stories, articles, poems, songs and recordings by native French speakers to assist members to talk more confidently in French. There is quite a wide range of proficiency in the group so, provided that you have some ability to converse in French, you should not be nervous about joining. In any case, you are welcome to come along for a session to see whether it might suit you. You will be helped with understanding, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and speaking - without embarrassment. Members should be at a level between Beginners and Advanced.

On ne parle qu'en français
Canford Cliffs Village Hall, Ravine Road, Poole

Thursdays: 1:30pm to 3:15pm

A mixed ability class which always starts with a “dictée” to test participants’ written knowledge of French. The primary objective is to SPEAK French in a modern and colloquial manner. We do translations from and into both languages. Each “pupil” is encouraged to prepare a little talk which is read out to the class. Without wanting to interrupt the train of thought I do correct errors and pronunciation.

For more details of this course, please phone Susan Seigle-Morris on 741435.
