Resources

Version Originale 3: Livre De L'Eleve (B1) (2011) by Monique Denyer, Christian Ollivier, Emilie Perrichon and Christian Puren.

There isn’t a University bookshop however The European Bookshop website holds our book list and offers a 10% discount to all our students.

It is not essential to bring a course book to the first class. The tutor will discuss book requirements in class and advise you of the best places to obtain the book if required.  With some languages there is the option for us to order textbooks on behalf of a class

Our approach

This course is taught in French; English is used when necessary or requested by students in particular situations or grammar explanations. Our programme aims to develop the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as cultural awareness. It provides a good balance between understanding the culture, vocabulary and grammar structures of the French language and enhancing communication and interaction. It supports comprehensive and productive skills in speech and writing through authentic based activities and guided practice in the use of French language. Students will be encouraged to seek opportunities to learn and practise the four skills outside the classroom taking advantage of learning resources provided by tutors and the programme. Lessons are planned to allow intensive interactive practice with individual feedback and advice on progress.

Progression

Upon completing the Intermediate level (3), you can progress onto the Upper-intermediate level (4).
