French – Advanced Begginer Level


Advanced beginner participants have some basic knowledge of French (vocabulary, a few sentences and verbs) and can communicate the simplest ideas. These individuals progress quicker than beginners when it comes to acquiring new knowledge.

At the end of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Communicate orally and in writing regarding relatively simple tasks
  • Discuss daily activities
  • Ask questions
  • Get information about something
  • Choose and object and purchase this item
  • Give advice
  • Ask permission
  • Verbalize projects
  • State past actions
  • Describe habits, people and objects using the past tense
  • Compare people and things
  • Communicate about simple and usual tasks that do not require a lot of exchange on the subject



Anyone whose mother tongue is not French.

A placement test is suggested before registering for a course (exception: having taken and passed the prerequisite course)
