What is French?

What will I study?

You will study a comprehensive grammar course which will cover the basics (though not absolutely from zero) as well as moving on to more advanced tenses and structures. You will take part in oral discussions and write letters etc on a range of topics from television and celebrity through to your family and life at home.

Why should I study French?
