Make the most of your holidays! This programme designed for beginners (level A1 & A2) focuses on practical situations that tourists will most likely encounter when travelling in a French-speaking country: get directions, read tourist information, order in a restaurant, shop, book a place to stay, make travel arrangements, organise a trip, and, of course, interact with people. With over 20 hours of class, students will improve their command of the language, get useful phrases, cultural tips, savoir-vivre and savoir-faire that will help them before and during their stay.
