January Refresher Workshops

These all-day refresher workshops will get your French brain active for the new year. Also open to non-registered students, however, bookings are essential.

Our language workshops take place at our St Ives school, and are available for all non-beginner levels.

What is the right level for me?
Your level for the Refresher Workshop is the same as your 2020 class level. So if you were enrolled in an Upper-Intermediate 3 level in 2020, the Refresher Workshop for you is the Upper-Intermediate one. You’ll move up one level from Term 1 2021, in February.

What will we do during the workshop? 
Each workshop will be tailored to the level of the students, and will offer a selection of listening, reading, grammatical and speaking activities. The goal is to dive back into French after a couple of months without any classes to get our brains rewired and be ready for our Term 1 classes starting the following week.

What is included? 
Coffee break in the morning and a light lunch.

I’m not currently enrolled in a class, what level should I enroll in?
Contact us if you are not a current student at French à la Carte so we can advise the best workshop for your French level.
