French Group 4

(Wednesday 10am)

My wife and I found that holidays in France were much improved when we could communicate properly with the local people. All members of the group have experience of French grammar which provides a sound basis for vocabulary development. Emphasis is placed on the gender of nouns and correct pronunciation.
Fortnightly lessons are divided into 4 or 5 different areas and last 2 hours with a coffee break half way. There may be some free discussion in French of the members’ activities during the last week. I often hand out some sheets for reading and translation of a French passage. Indeed, whenever members go to France, I ask them to bring back newspapers and dépliants for us to translate. I use language videos, tapes and discs and also U-Tube. Developing a good accent is one of the hardest things for older students, myself included, so this listening is a very important component. From time to time, we play a version of scrabble in French.
The text we have been using is French in Three Months.(Hugo) ISBN 1-4053-0100-7. This has proved a very good basis to work from.
