What Will You Learn?

Who hasn’t dreamt of speaking French? It’s a romantic language that opens the door to fantastic trips to France – Paris, Nice, Bordeaux, Marseille, and more – while being able to converse and express oneself in the native tongue.

The French for Beginners Diploma Course will help you to learn the key words, phrases and idioms used in daily French in order to engage in basic, day-to-day conversations. With 10 modules, each accompanied by a downloadable audio version and concluding in a multiple-choice assessment, this course will ensure you develop accurate comprehension and pronunciation.

You’ll start the course by learning how various sounds in French are pronounced and you’ll become familiar with the specificities of the French alphabet. 

We’ll introduce you to basic formal and informal greetings and introductions and the use of singular and plural pronouns and verbs, before moving on to numbers.

You’ll learn how to correctly pronounce numbers, and ask for and tell the time and the prices of items, along with how to make an appointment and requests, book a reservation and set an appointment.

The course will guide you through expressing your likes and dislikes and the descriptive adjectives and verbs commonly used in daily life. We’ll explore how to talk about and describe the daily activities you engage in within the home, work, travel, sports, and transportation.

We’ll explore the use of past and future tenses, such as when talking about past events, days of the week, months, seasons, plans and holiday seasons.

The course concludes with a look at common expressions used by the French media, be it in the written press, on the radio or TV.

This course:

  • Includes a downloadable audio version of each module (10 in total + an introduction and a conclusion)
  • Provides simple explanations, useful examples and effective activities
  • Ensures understanding with assessment questions
  • Helps you learn to read and write French
  • Aids you in becoming capable of having a basic conversation in French

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
