LEAP - French courses

General courses

We offer a number of two-semester, three-contact hours per week courses (except Introductory and Elementary levels) aiming to develop your language competence and cultural knowledge for all walks of life in a French-speaking country. Levels available range from absolute beginner to near-native speaker.

Introductory French is similar to Beginners’ French but runs for one semester only (either semester one or semester two)

Specialist courses

Specialist courses are similar to general courses and cover the same grammar topics. Communicative skills are learnt and practised within topical situations, but no specialist knowledge is pre-required except for Medical French.

The course books listed on the French course description pages have been approved for 2017/18.
