If you have little or no previous knowledge of French, Beginner 1 is the right level for you. Speak and hear French from the first day as you quickly gain basic conversation skills to communicate information about yourself, your family and friends, your work, and your daily life. Learn pronunciation, expressions, and vocabulary that allow you to function in everyday settings. Practise your new language skills in a relaxed environment with the support of our passionate and experienced instructors. For extra practice between classes, you can access resources chosen by your instructor using our online system called Moodle.
