French – Advanced Intermediate Level


Advanced intermediate level participants already know a lot. They are familiar with some subjects and can communicate their thoughts easily when conversing with a French native speaker; however, they still feel the need to review some grammatical aspects. At this point, the course is increasingly focused on the participants’ strengths and weaknesses.

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

  • Communicate orally and in writing to carry out elaborate tasks regarding their social and professional life
  • Understand the essentials when a clear and standard language is used
  • Produce a coherent speech on subjects and fields of interest
  • Describe a goal and briefly speak about the reasons or explanations for a project or idea
  • Communicate spontaneously and with ease, such as in a conversation with a native speaker where there is no tension for either party
  • Clearly express in details subjects of a wide variety
  • Express precedence to the past and future
  • Express obligation, will, possibility
  • Formulate hypotheses
  • State what a person said by using the present

This course offers practice and an enrichment of the French language that is required to communicate when using precise and detailed content. During the class, the participants will learn new vocabulary and systematic complex grammatical notions to express feelings, possibilities and wishes. Tasks and activities will be carried out in order to produce structured texts that comply with the subject – verb agreement notion.



Anyone whose mother tongue is not French or who would like to improve their skills.
