French level 4
The French level 4 course is right for you if you have a good basic knowledge of French. You should be able to write a post on an everyday subject and to read blog posts about familiar topics.
During the course, you will develop the language skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening in French. Grammar and vocabulary are also part of the course.
The subjects covered in the French level 4 course are school, study, work, culture and travel. After completing the course, you will be able to speak or write about a trip you have undertaken and give your opinion about a book, film or series.
The grammar you learn in this course includes conditional sentences with si (if) as in s’il fait beau demain on fera un barbecue, and the future tense using quand (when) as in quand j’irai à Paris je viendrai te voir. You also learn the difference between the past perfect tense and the imperfect tense (ma tante avait fait une tarte aux fraises and ma tante faisait une tarte aux fraises).
