LEAP - French courses

General courses

We offer a number of two-semester, three-contact hours per week courses (except Introduction 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 C1 standard in the Common European Framework.

Introduction to French is a beginners course, as is French 1, but runs for one semester only (semester two), therefore the level achieved at the end of the module would be roughly half of that of the full-year course (see 'learning outcomes' in the course description pages.


The course books listed on the French course description pages have been approved for 2022/23.
