General French courses can be to the advantage of anybody, whether you are a rank beginner or already have some experience of the tongue. By focusing on grammar and vocabulary skills, Listen & Learn's general courses are perfect to develop your fluency in speaking, listening and reading everyday French. They are perfect for those who want to start making their French work for them, and a great precursor to a business course.
Our group courses in general French are perfect if you have a group of 2-12 students who have achieved approximately the same level of French, whether that be beginner or advanced. Your teacher will focus on French grammar and vocabulary that will be useful in everyday communication, and will provide plenty of practice with speaking, reading, and listening. Your group should have similar learning goals, and be available at the same time and location every week. A general group course is suitable for groups of colleagues or friends, and is also a good option for businesses who want to give their employees a basic grounding in French before they begin a business French course.
Our business courses cater to learners with a decent general knowledge of French but would like to expand their skills for use in the business world. Courses are, as always, completely tailormade for the relevant industry and skill sets (e.g. business correspondence, writing reports etc.). One-to-one business courses are perfect for professionals hoping to develop their current French skills, especially those working for multinational corporations, preparing to work from abroad, or looking for overseas employment.
Intended for learners who already have a basic grasp of French and wish to extend it to apply to their working lives, group business French courses are a great way to enable employees within a multinational corporation to be productive in both their native tongue and their newly-acquired French. Group courses cater for up to 12 people (minimum of 2 students), and should be scheduled to take place at the same time and location each week. The tutor will develop the group's vocabulary to suit the related industry, as well as improve competence for day to day tasks performed in French.
Specific purposes French courses are a great boon to people who have already studied French and wish to develop certain facets of their French skills. This can include an array of helpful guidance, including the following:
• Vocabulary related to the industry (legal, HR, engineering, accounting, medical etc.)
• Accent softening and elocution
• Expanding upon existing aspects (writing, speaking, listening, reading etc.)
• Language for travelling
• Communication skills in business (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Writing skills in business (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• Historical and cultural sensitivity
If your group of 2-12 French learners require the same set of particular skills as well as a standard language course, our specific purpose group French courses can really help make a difference. So long as the whole group is at about the same stage of learning French, we can help improve their overall understanding by arranging classes focusing on improving the following:
• Elocution and softening of native accent
• Improving specific skills (writing, comprehension, listening, etc.)
• Language for international travel
• Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• Vocabulary for relevant industry (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)
• Cultural and historical sensitivity
"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."
