Description of the Exeter Based Lessons:

During this 10 week course (20 hours) you will be able to improve your language skills, meet new people and enjoy the culture as taught by a native speaker. Our syllabus has been designed to fulfil your language needs, be they for travel purposes, work or just for fun!

All group lessons are held during the evening. Classes last for 2 hours and are held 1 day per week.

We offer innovative programs where you can learn from the complete beginning or improve with our wide choice of French language courses. Lessons include a balance of conversation, listening, pronunciation and grammar to help you communicate and thrive in everyday situations in French speaking countries.

The syllabus aims to provide useful and relevant language skills using up-to-date and interesting materials. It encourages participants to practice the language and quickly build confidence and develop fluency.

We use an interactive method of teaching based on learning by practising and having fun. Grammar is covered as much as possible by using practical situations.

There is a maximum of 6 students per class, ensuring that all our students have the opportunity to participate and spend time with the tutor. A large part of the study material is presented in the form of practical activities and exercises through which you will learn to understand and speak French almost without noticing.

Detailed French Syllabus For The Exeter Courses:

At ARA Languages,we base our language syllabus on the Common European Framework for languages.

The CEFR is a part of the work of the Council of Europe and was established in the 1950s with the aim of the “democratisation of language learning for the mobility of persons and ideas, and on the promotion of the European heritage of cultural and linguistic diversity” In practice that means you should be able to do the same kinds of things in different languages at the same level. Each level in our syllabus is subdivided into Communicative Objectives, Topics and Vocabulary & Grammar.
