French Beginners

Starting Online via Zoom

This class will move back to the Centre if the COVID situation changes to safely allow on-site classes.


This class is limited to 12 enrolments.

Start here: For beginners...

Whatever your motivation to learn another language is, be it for upcoming travel, to sharpen your cognitive skills, to improve your memory, to learn more about the French culture or just to have fun - begin your journey here! Experience the exhilaration of understanding a new concept and grasping a particular rule. In a small class, tutors take time to explain concepts, provide the opportunity to practice French in conversation and make learning a language fun.

LEVEL 1:

Focus on the practical use of a language in everyday situations; basic conversation, greetings, useful vocabulary and some cultural immersion. Verbs, conjugation, elementary discourse and grammar are included.

*Please note class levels are subject to change depending on enrolment numbers and student abilities within each class. Students moving to a new level may need to change the day of their attendance. For repeat students, please ask your teacher for advice when re-enrolling about a suitable class for your level. For new students, please contact us to discuss further your level of experience. We look forward to finding the right class for you!
