This course corresponds with the level C2 of the European Framework for languages. It is designed to make learners feel as if they were no longer in the United Kingdom but in a café in the Place du Tertre or talking to the wine merchants of Bordeaux
We will use a variety of materials as a springboard for discussion such as newspaper articles, extracts from literature, documentaries and radio broadcasts. There will be a wide range of topics and many of these will reflect current issues as well as the interests of the participants. Aspects of life and culture in many French-speaking countries will be included. There will be opportunities for learners to revisit grammatical and structural topics if they wish.
Please note there is no session on 14.02.24

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.
Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.
If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.
Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.
The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
