Pardon my French!
Start: 15th March 2013 at 6:00pm
End: 17th March 2013 at 2:00pm
Tutor: Celia Weber
A weekend for those who already have a basic knowledge of French, but feel a little rusty. Brush up your language skills and improve your confidence with a variety of activities designed to give you opportunities for speaking, listening and understanding in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, in beautiful surroundings. This is a tailor-made course, designed around what you personally would like to practise.
Your tutor will contact you in advance about this. After a good mixture of hard work and fun, you will go home able to demonstrate to the French that les Rosbifs are not all rubbish at speaking a foreign language.
