French

In our French classes we focus on speaking, writing, reading and listening and of course on the French culture and we speak French as much as possible! We have various levels and for advanced speakers who want to keep their French ‘comme il faut’, we have a conversation class!

New courses start in the week of 9 September 2019. Scroll down for the schedule.

The courses are in the CENTRE (Muiderstraat 24, Sint Nicolaasstraat 59 or Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 101, you will receive a confirmation of the exact location approximately 1 week before the course starts) or in ZUID (Tweede Schinkelstraat 26).

Do you want to enroll in one of the on-going courses? That’s possible! Please contact us for the options.

 

 

 

Level: A1.1

Are you intrigued by or already in love with the French language? Can you order a croissant, but do you freeze when a waiter answers back: “Et avec ceci?”. If you are an absolute beginner or have some idea of basic French grammar but could use a refresher, this is the course for you. In this course, you’ll build a solid foundation to develop your French skills. You’ll learn how to introduce yourself, talk about your city and neighbourhood and ask questions.

Level: A1.2

You are still a beginner, but you can get by with basic phrases in French. You can introduce yourself, talk about the city you live in and start a conversation with a stranger. You can even count to 100, without fearing 75 or 91.

In this course you will expand your vocabulary so you can talk about your daily routine or your favourite activities. You will learn to ask and complain about the weather, and you will be able to give and ask for fashion tips when shopping in Paris. Most importantly, you will learn to talk about food while eating with friends, like the French do. If this sounds like a good challenge, then A1.2 is for you.
