Notes on Class Arrangements under the COVID-19 Outbreak

The COVID-19 situation may still be fluid and constantly affect class arrangements in the coming months. The health and safety of our students will always be our top priority.  To ensure that students’ academic progress is not affected, the School may substitute face-to-face classes with online teaching if necessary in the event that face-to-face classes cannot be held.  Our respective Programme Teams will contact the students concerned with details of such arrangements as necessary.

This carries on from the Certificate in French (Introductory) (Part 1), and is suitable for anyone who has studied about 60 hours of French. It covers the same material as the second half of the 120-hour Certificate in French (Introductory),  including everyday topics and a balance of all four skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), as well as practice on key grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.

It covers the content of the A1 level in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
