Level 4 French

After successfully trialling online French lessons for levels 4, 5 and 6, prompted by a combination of Covid and a fire which damaged our venue, we have decided to continue with this format for 2023-24, in line with the expressed wishes of our Association members who attend those sessions.


Levels 4 & 5 will be a combined group with weekly two-hour sessions on Friday mornings, and Level 6 will be held on Monday mornings.


Levels 4 and 5 French

Levels 4 and 5 are 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. 

In 2023-2024, the Level 4/5 course will take place online via video-conference with Google Meet on Fridays from 9:30 to 12:00 with half an hour’s break from 10:30 to 11:00.

The course will be limited to 10 people.

People who would like to join the course in September 2023 should get in touch with Catherine now via the “Contact” page. 

The first lesson will be on Friday, 22nd September.



The Level 4/5 course is meant for people who: 

  • are already able to communicate well in French but

  • want to develop their skills further,

  • still need to work at some grammatical points they may already have studied in the past,

  • need to correct some bad habits,

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

  • have been introduced to the imparfait.


During the year, they will: 

  • revise what they learnt the year before, including the passé composé and the imparfait,

  • study the future and the present conditional, 

  • use original audio and visual documents (including dialogues, songs, cartoons, and photographs) both for oral and written. comprehension and expression, so that everyone can find activities that suit his/her tastes. 


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

  • understand spoken French more easily,

  • have corrected most of their most usual mistakes,

  • speak and write short texts using the present, the future, the “passé composé” and the “imparfait”,

  • have become more confident in their knowledge of French.
