You will have been studying now long enough to have enough language to get by, with sufficient vocabulary to express yourself on topics such as family, hobbies and interests, work, travel, and current events. You will express opinions, comparisons, uncertainty and doubts that take place in the past, the present, the future.

Please note that this course is planned to be delivered online using Microsoft Teams. Access details will be sent through upon course confirmation.

You are now using reasonably accurately a repertoire of frequently used "routines" and patterns associated with more predictable situations. As a result, you will keep going comprehensibly, even though pausing for grammatical and lexical planning and repair, especially in longer stretches of free production. You will also be able to initiate and maintain a face-to-face conversation on a wide range of topics. You will be able to read, write and express your thought in a more sophisticated manner whilst developing your understanding of more native speakers from different parts of France and its former colonies.

In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2 ½ weeks prior to your course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.

To enable you to enjoy the best online learning experience, you will require a suitable device such as laptop, or tablet. A mobile phone is not ideal for learning this way. Please email for further details

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
