Level A2 is for those who have mastered the basic complexities of grammar and language concepts and have completed at least 4 or more continuous years of learning. Students are confident to use past tenses in talking about past activities and are able to engage in some simple conversation. At this level, students become familiar with most irregular conjugating verbs and continue to develop further their language skills through listening and oral activities in French, while consolidating their pronunciation. This course is also appropriate for those who have a very good knowledge of the language, through prior studies and who would like to practice more their speaking skills.

Level B2: Tuesday morningTuesday 2nd of May to Tuesday 27th of June, from: 10.00a.m to 12pm.

Level B2 course is geared towards students who have done 4- 6 yrs of French at High School level, at university level or other adult education centers with a sound knowledge of their present, future and past tenses. The course uses grammar as a tool to further conversation skills and to allow students to gain confidence in using more complex structured and unstructured language skills. Through a diverse range of activities, participants feel more confident to speak in small or large groups, to discuss on selected themes, to recite poems and so on. It is also a social forum for those who want to keep up learning the French language while keeping their mind alert and healthy.

Testimonies from Tuesday class:

Marie-Anne makes learning French easy, fun and exciting. She is always encouraging, and I feel very comfortable attempting to speak with her.  She excels at explaining grammar in a way that makes sense to native English speakers.  Her lessons are always engaging and tailored to what interests the student.  Working with such a committed and passionate teacher has motivated me to want to study in between the lessons.

While the classes are structured to enforce language skills, the nuances of culture and the history of French society are not neglected.  Classes are small which means that every student gets practice speaking the language with the teacher and one another.  The price is very affordable for the 10 week term. I doubt my French would be at its current level particularly my understanding of conjugation, tenses and grammar without these classes.  I have also made long-lasting friendships with fellow students. I can only rave about these classes!” Karin Godecke – South Perth.
