Everybody can benefit from our general French courses - they endeavour to give the learner fluency in general French conversation, whether through learning the basics or improving existing skills. General courses concentrate mainly on sharpening up grammar and vocabulary, and aim to expand the ability to speak, read and listen French with full comprehension. These courses will be most suitable for those who want to improve their French to a practicable level, or as a basis for a business French course.
Our French group courses are targeted for sets of 2-12 people, all of whom have the same requirements from learning French. Everybody should be at about the same level at the start of the course, and the entire group should be able to meet at the same time and place each week. Grammar and vocabulary form the backbone of the general course, helping the student gain fluency in conversational topics whilst increasing their overall working French knowledge. For groups who wish to engage in further French study, the general course is an excellent starting point.
One-to-one business French courses are aimed at learners who already have at least a working knowledge of French, but would like to further develop their skills in business communication. Our courses can be adapted to focus on your particular industry, and your trainer can help you with specific areas of skill development, such as report-writing, dictation, or business correspondence. Business French courses are great for any professionals who would benefit from further knowledge of French, including those working in multinational companies, preparing for international transfer, or seeking a new position. Many of our business students work in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, academia, and government.
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.
Designed for those already with a good grasp of French, who may have designs to use their acquired language for specific purposes, these courses can incorporate various skills and practices that help make the difference between sticking out like a sore thumb and blending in like a local, including:
• 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
As long as all members of a group French course are at a similar level of expertise, specific purpose French courses can be customised to suit the needs of the group of 2-12 students with similar learning aims. These often include:
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
