French: Beginners Holiday Workshop Online
Who is this course for?
This course may suit you if you have little or no knowledge of the French language and are interested in learning via the internet.
Learning a language has many benefits including:
– being able to communicate better abroad
– understanding another culture
– exercising your brain
The course will introduce you to a key topic in the language to help you when in French-speaking countries. It will be accessible to all learners.
You will be encouraged to take part in all of the activities and be able to ask questions and make comments to both your tutor and others on the course.
You will be working with your tutor in a virtual learning environment using an online video platform called Zoom. There will be other learners in the virtual classroom. Your tutor will introduce the topic, encourage you to have a go at repeating and speaking the language and give feedback and support throughout the course.
Support and feedback
Your tutor will support you throughout the online session, providing written feedback on your progress and suggestions on how to progress.
Additional costs and requirements
You will need a laptop / PC / phone / tablet with a camera and microphone/headphones and a good internet connection. A pen and paper will also be useful for any notes you might like to make.
Will I have to do anything outside of the session?
