Intermediate French classes Salisbury

Please see below a snapshot of what we will be looking at in our Intermediate French course in Salisbury, starting on 16th January and taking place at 4:45-5:45pm every Wednesday at Wilton Community Centre (Room 4). The centre is just opposite the lovely Italianate church - map here.

Our Intermediate classes are for you if most of the following apply:

  • you can introduce yourself to, and have a basic conversation with, a French-speaker.
  • you are familiar with the three key verbs (avoir, être and aller) in the present tense.
  • you have some familiarity (even if this is minimal) with how to form basic past and future tenses.
  • you're happy translating basic vocabulary such as tree, nephew, to watch and bicycle.

...but might struggle with some or all of the following:

  • distinguishing between the imperfect and the passé composé when talking about events in the past.
  • using direct and indirect object pronouns: I like them, she's talking to him...etc.
  • using more advanced (but nevertheless common) vocabulary such as réseau, lumière, démarrer and réussir.

You will, towards the end of the intermediate course, be able to start putting reasonably sophisticated sentences together. So we will devote the last two sessions of the course to improving your conversational skills, including:

  • expressing your opinion, and your likes and dislikes;
  • useful words and phrases to avoid awkward silences and "buy yourself a bit of time" while you're thinking of the rest of your sentence.
