Intensive French language for beginners and very near beginners.
Do you want to learn another language and be able to travel with confidence in more than 30 countries or add a new skill to your degree? This paper engages students in learning the basic vocabulary and structures of French. The teaching methodology is student-centred, with the lecturer acting as facilitator, and the ultimate goal of this paper is to make the students independent users of French.
