French Beginners Stage 2

State ID: C2047

 

 

Every term, North Metropolitan TAFE offers short courses in languages for beginners through to advanced.  Classes primarily emphasise speaking and listening skills and focus on the development of practical competence in a variety of everyday situations.  Students are given every opportunity to develop their confidence and skills by participating in pair and group activities.  Course facilitators are generally native speakers of the language taught.

The French language is spoken in many parts of the world and has long been used as the language of diplomacy.  Even though French is no longer an official language in many countries due to political changes, it is still spoken in many parts of Canada, Africa, the islands of Reunion, the Antilles, Madagascar, Mauritius, New Caledonia and Tahiti. 

As it is a Latin-based language, learning French will also open up the world of Romance languages: once you have mastered French, you will find it relatively easy to pick up Italian and Spanish as well.

Whether you want to learn French to enhance your effectiveness at work or improve your job prospects, to make your business or holiday trip more fulfilling or simply for the joy of learning about a new language and culture, we wish you enjoyment and “Bonne chance”! 

This course is a direct continuation of Beginners 1.  Words and phrases learned are revised and extended to new situations, and more cultural information on the countries added.  On completion of this course, students are able to communicate in simple language with more confidence and competence in a wider range of situations.
