Learn the basics
French Beginners aims to provide students with a basic knowledge of French and focuses on the acquisition of practical communicative skills. It covers basic grammar and essential vocabulary, allowing participants to communicate effectively and with confidence in French on a range of topics relating to everyday situations.
