French for Fun and Travel

This is an introductory course for participants with little or no knowledge of the French language.  In a small group setting participants will learn to progressively build on basic French grammar and vocabulary to be able to ask simple questions, make enquiries, talk about oneself and discuss a variety of day-to- day and travel related topics in a range of settings. 

The emphasis will be on acquiring an “ear” and “feel” for French in a fun interactive class environment.

This class will be held on Fridays for eight weeks commencing July 26th at the Maroochy Library rooms.

To enrol please go to the U3A website, Class Code 19LAN324, or contact the U3A Office on 5430 1123.
