Level 2 French
The Level 2 course will take place on Thursday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00 at the communal room (Kerbuannec 2).
This course is meant for people who:
know some basics, such as time notions, colours, numbers, food, leisure and sport
can speak about themselves and their family
are able to ask and answer some simple questions, and to make themselves understood in everyday situations such as shopping, asking for an appointment or ordering at the restaurant.
During the year, they will develop their abilities and will be introduced to some basic grammar such as the present tense.
By the end of the year, those who have attended the course regularly should be able to:
speak (and write) about their habits, what they are doing at the moment and are going to do
hold simple conversations with French speakers about the weather, their health, their habits, their projects
The Level 2 group will be taught by Dina. She studied history and linguistics in Australia, and has a varied career history in information management, library and museum work, editing and proofreading, and latterly in environmental documentary production and distribution.
Dina’s mother language is English but she speaks and writes French fluently. Because of her background, she is well aware of the difficulties an English speaker may have to face when learning French.
Dina prefers to teach in front of her class, but depending on the health situation during the year, we all may have to adapt, so people joining any of the French groups this year must be aware that we may have to turn to video conferences at some stage.
