French Beginners – Holiday Basics Course overview
This online course in conversational French for holidays is aimed at total beginners and those who might need a little refresher ahead of their travels.
Taught across one weekend, it will allow you to brush up on common phrases to use abroad or converse with friends and family who speak the language. It is one of the best ways to learn French if you are short of time.
These French lessons are interactive and immersive to maximise your knowledge. No French grammar and verbs, more French glamour and verve!
It is also a great introduction if you are considering studying a longer course at City but would like to get a flavour for the language first.
Who is it for?
Anybody wanting to brush up on their French in a short space of time, perhaps for a holiday in France, Africa or anywhere French speaking.
