French Course 402 (Level 14)

French. Learn French with us.

Level A2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)


This course covers more complex areas of speech relating to clarity, accuracy and checking you’ve been understood. Your ability will be furthered by covering the grammatical themes of compound relative pronouns, the choice of the infinitive rather than a conjugated verb and the future perfect.


This course covers the following topics:

  • le monde du travail
  • loisirs, vacances, congés payés
  • l’humour et les différences culturelles
  • la francophonie
  • raffiner son discours – s’assurer qu’on est compris, illustrer et préciser ses propos, remplacer un mot par un autre quand on cherche ses mots…
  • grammaire: pronoms relatifs composés (pour lequel, avec lequel, duquel…); le futur antérieur; les constructions infinitives (je crois pouvoir répondre).

Intended audience
