Standard Group Courses in General French

Listen & Learn's general French courses for groups are a great option for groups of 2-12 colleagues or friends who are at the same level in studying French. Your group should have similar learning goals and be available to study at the same time and location every week. The courses are tailored to suit the group's level, no matter how elementary or advanced. General courses aim to give students knowledge of common French that would be used in real scenarios. Your teacher will cover a lot of grammar and vocabulary, as well as give you ample opportunities to practise your reading, listening, and speaking skills. General group French courses are great for groups who would like to begin learning French, or improve on existing skills and knowledge. These courses are also highly recommended as a first step for companies who would like their employees to move on to a business language course once they have a working knowledge of French.

French Testimonials

"I needed to learn some French because I'll be relocating to Canada next year. My Business French course was great - my teacher was real professional, and if I had any questions she was happy to answer them. Can't believe how quickly I got into it."

For Teachers

Birmingham facts

Widely regarded as the UK's "second city" (and the largest of the UK's 8 "core cities"), Birmingham's reputation came into its own during the Industrial Revolution, leading to nicknames for the city such as The Workshop of the World. The city these days has a population of just over 1,000,000 people, but is more concerned with the service sector than following its history as a centre of manufacturing and engineering - though the many museums are still there to boast its rich heritage. Birmingham boasts a recorded history that goes back 1,000 years, growing from a small farming village into a huge commercial and industrial city.
