Quote Icon This course is ideal for:

those who have done a certain amount of French in the past (maybe a GCSE at school or a few terms of an adult education class) and who can remember the basics but want to go back and relearn the ‘usual stuff’ (personal introductions, buying food, drink, souvenirs and clothes etc) but at not at such a basic level. These people will already have at least SOME knowledge of the present tense of the twenty most important verbs even if they cannot conjugate them perfectly yet. We’ll revisit these as we give you more of the vocabulary and phrases you will need to get you what you want and into the locals’ good books when you are next on holiday in Spain! And remember communication is the most important thing and an incorrect verb ending or gender doesn’t matter as much as you think it does!

What's included?
  • 20 double-sided worksheets;
  • 10 double-sided word cards;
  • Ringbinder file with dividers and spare paper;

Since my first of many twinning exchange trips to the Loire Valley in France and to the Ruhr Valley in Germany in my teens, I have always loved foreign languages, cultures and people (and of course the food and drink too). As part of my university studies, I spent eight months in Lorraine on the border with Belgium and Luxembourg, four months in Nordrhein-Westfalen on the border with the Netherlands and four months in the city of Lyon. Having only started learning Spanish as an adult, I have not spent extensive amounts of time in Spain but I have holidayed there as well as in Peru. Before becoming a licencee with Language for Fun, I taught for twelve years in secondary schools, including one in Zambia near the border with French-speaking Congo. I have had many adventures in many Francophone, Germanophone and Hispanophone countries where my language 'skills' have both saved the day AND got me into a bit of hot water! Let me use MY cringeworthy past experiences of making hilarious mistakes save YOU from doing the same.
When I am not teaching or learning languages (I speak some Dutch and Italian now too), I enjoy swimming, reading and walking but I am particularly passionate about the performing arts; I think you will be able to tell this when you meet me! I look forward to meeting YOU!
