Course description

French 1A – Online

Assumes no previous knowledge. Students learn basic spoken language for everyday, routine situations, for pleasure or business, for socialising with first language speakers and for an insight into their way of life.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The Stage 1A course is designed for complete beginners and therefore assumes no previous knowledge of French. Stage 1 (A, B, C) courses aim to help you reach A1 level of competency in the Common European Framework of References for languages (CEFR).

Training Course Content

This course is working towards reaching A1 level of competency in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The aim of the course is to give students basic skills to communicate in French. The emphasis is on basic oral communication, incorporating listening skills, and to a lesser extent reading and writing skills. The topics will include real-life situations such as introducing oneself, greeting people, asking for things, directions and information, talking about oneself etc. and understanding the likely responses. The structure of the course will focus on building basic grammar skills as the need arises from the situations listed above (such as the present tense, issues of feminine/masculine articles, the use of adjectives) and vocabulary related to day-to-day situations. The course will strive to balance spoken and listening skills.

  • Recognise familiar words and very basic phrases concerning myself, my family and immediate concrete surroundings when people speak slowly and clearly.
  • Understand familiar names, words and very simple sentences, for example on notices and posters or in catalogues.
  • Interact in a simple way provided the other person is prepared to repeat or rephrase things at a slower rate of speech and help formulate what you're trying to say. Ask and answer simple questions in areas of immediate need or on very familiar topics.
  • Use simple phrases and sentences to describe where you live and people you know. (towards CEFR A1)

Course delivery details

The course will be run online using Zoom for the live class sessions and either the Moodle page for the course or some other system for the distribution of the electronic resources for the session sitting alongside this. Although there will be some adjustments that need to be made for the online version of this course, we will aim to keep the experience as close as possible to that of a face to face course taught in the Centre.
