French A1 Compact


You do not speak French at all, apart from a few basic words such as "Bonjour" and "Au revoir" and you are already literate in a Roman language.


Listening and speaking

Reading and writing


Assuming regular attendance and independent study, you should be able to do the following by the end of this course:

  • Introduce yourself in a simple way and introduce someone else
  • Talk about your tastes and hobbies
  • Propose something to someone and exchange information about it
  • Ask and answer questions in a simple way about ordinary things: shopping, restaurants, cafés, etc.
  • Exchange simple information about your everyday activities.


Pair work and work in the class plenum.


A compact course (twice a week, for one semester)

- based on schemes of work

- all learners are assessed and will be issued a certificate outlining their skills level

- intended for learners who are autonomous (internet research) and who are ready to invest some time outside of the classroom for their learning progress. The work schemes and the evaluations are indeed identical with the standard courses taking place 3 times a week.
