This course aims to give students confidence in basic communication skills while travelling. Students will use simple conversational French that is effective in situations like meeting people, finding accommodation, travelling and eating out.

Each session involves learning a clearly defined set of key expressions and practising with the class in fun, real-life travel situations. French for Travellers focuses on developing speaking and listening skills. There is no formal grammar teaching and less emphasis on reading or writing skills. The French used is contemporary and colloquial. The course also offers an insight into culture and protocol.

The following topics are covered:

  • meeting people
  • transport & directions
  • accommodation
  • shopping & money
  • food & drink
  • entertainment & sightseeing
  • health
  • weather
  • expressing likes and dislikes
  • solving problems

By the end of this course students should be able to:

  • Make requests and locate information related to transport at airports, train and bus terminals and taxi ranks.
  • Carry out transactions such as booking a hotel reservation, ordering meals in restaurants, currency exchange and buying tickets for traditional events.
  • Know what to do in emergency situations like going to hospital.
  • Read signs (e.g. at airports and on roads).
  • Understand the importance of cultural differences.

This course is suited to complete beginners.
