Level 4 French

Level 4 will be taught by Catherine, a native French speaker who studied French and English at the Sorbonne in Paris, qualified and then taught English for more than 30 years to secondary school and adult students.


The class usually takes place at the communal room (Kerbuannec 2). However, for the first term in 2021, the class will take place by video conference on Thursdays from 10:00 to 11:00. 


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 use video conferences at any stage.


Level 4 is the follow-up of Level 3.  It is meant for people who:

  • are already able to communicate in French well enough but want to develop their skills

  • have a good knowledge of the present tense and the near future

  • have been introduced to the « passé composé ».


During the year, they will:

  • revise what they learnt the year before

  • listen to oral documents to improve their understanding of French people speaking at a normal speed

  • develop their abilities to communicate and their knowledge of French grammar, studying, among a lot of other things, the « passé composé » in depth and being introduced to the « imparfait ».


By the end of the year, after attending the course regularly, they should be able to:

  • understand spoken French more easily

  • speak and write using the present, the future and both the « passé composé » and the « imparfait ».
