Are you short on time but want to practise and maintain your French? Then, this online course is for you!
Our online Bitesized courses are aimed at busy people who struggle to fit in traditional language classes around work. They allow students to practise their language skills and maintain their busy schedules at the same time. Choose from classes before work (08.00-08.50), at lunchtime (12.20-13.10) or both.
This is a fun way to practise and improve your fluency with people alike: share your passion for languages and different aspects of culture. During the course you will have the opportunity to explore a variety of topics through interactive and communicative activities; special attention will also be paid to refining your pronunciation and intonation. Our language classes are dynamic, and delivered by qualified and experienced teachers, who will speak in the target language almost exclusively to allow for total immersion.
