Level 5 French

Level 5 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 Mondays from 9:00 to 10:00.


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 5 is meant for people who are quite fluent at speaking French but still need to work at some grammatical points and correct some bad habits, especially when they write.

During the year we will:


  • adapt to whatever needs to be improved in their knowlege of French vocabulary, expressions and grammar

  • revise the « passé composé » and the « imparfait »

  • if possible, study the « futur simple » and the « conditionnel présent »

  • use original audio and written documents, both for oral and written comprehension and expression, so that everyone in turn finds activities that suit his/her tastes.


By the end of the year, those who have attended the course regularly should:

  • have corrected most of their most usual mistakes 

  • have become more confident in their knowledge of French.
