French level 7
In the French level 7 course, you will take your language skills to an intermediate degree of proficiency. After this course you will, among other things, be able to:
- describe in detail what someone looks like
- give a presentation for or against an opinion on the climate
- read a poem and write one yourself
Who is it for?
This course is suitable for you if you can speak French at an intermediate level. You are not always able to find the right word, and you are not completely fluent, but you can converse reasonably smoothly in French. You can also write a short review about a TV programme you have seen.
What will you learn?
During the French level 7 course, you improve your French reading, writing, speaking and listening skills on the topics of life in the city and the countryside, the human body, love and relationships.
After this course, you will know why French is called the language of love. You will learn how to talk about your relationship and your friendships, and you will learn all about the affectionate use of language, including flirting, seduction, nicknames and expressions of love. Once you have completed French level 7, you will even be able to write a romantic poem or a declaration of love.
You will find it fairly easy to read articles and editorials on familiar topics in French. You can summarise them, to tell someone something about them, for example, and you can write an open letter about them. You know the correct way to structure a text, with an introduction, your arguments and a conclusion.
The grammar you learn during this course includes:
- the pronouns le and ça
- indicating cause (faute de…, dû à…, à force de…) and effect (si bien que…, de façon que…)
- making passive sentences using être, reflexive verbs (with me, te, se, etc.) and the combination se faire or se laisser with a verb
