How do I know my level?


Beginner plus:

You can introduce yourself, but you want to learn how to ask questions, use verbs in the present and say what you do on a regular basis and learn to make your own sentences.



You know how to introduce yourself can ask questions and talk about yourself in the present (describing your routine, asking general questions to people), but you want to learn how to speak in the past and say what you have done.


Elementary Plus

You can speak in the present and you know how to use the past but you want to go further so you can tell stories. You need to practise and be comfortable in your conversations and develop your vocab to use more complex expressions.


Lower intermediate

You can speak in the future, in the past and present but you want to learn more tenses to tell stories as you struggle to say things such as ‘he was running when I saw him..’ ‘I was watching telly whilst they were playing’.. And discover what pronouns are (You give me, I speak to you…)



You are comfortable speaking in all tenses and you have a B1 level (minimum) but you need to learn about French culture, history and mindset so you can prepare for your Citizenship interview.

This course is suitable for people who are simply interested to learn more about France and French culture.
