West Lothian 50+ Network French for Beginners

Beginners French

Group Leader: Alex Aitken
West Lothian 50+ Network
Meet: Wednesday 2.00pm to 3.30pm in the West Lothian 50+ Network Office

This class has been running for some 3 years. It is run in a very informal way: minimal grammar, no homework, no need to take notes (unless you want to). It is not school and there are NO lessons as such, so if you miss a week, it is always possible to catch up. I tailor my lessons depending on which students turn up to my class on the day – some had no French at all and others had taken French, but several decades ago at school.

My methodology is to teach the “rules”, but in a simple way. It is a conversational class and focusses on the “sound” of the language rather than how the language is spelled. I follow the methods of Michel Thomas, who was a very successful teacher of many foreign languages.

Many of the teaching aides that I use I have written myself and I try to use many different programs including simple French books.
If anyone is interested in joining a “complete beginners French class”, give your name to the office and if there are enough numbers, I will consider running another beginners class.
