Take your French to the next level

  Enrol in Course


If you're hoping to take your French to the next level, Coffee Break French Season 2 is perfect for you. Building on what you learned in Season 1, this course will help you increase your understanding and build your range of expression. You'll learn to manipulate the language and to cope with a wide variety of situations in French.

What does the course contain?

There are forty lessons in total, representing over twenty hours of audio content, and extensive lesson notes to help you get the most out of the course. In each lesson, teacher Mark guides learner Anna on her language-learning journey. You'll learn to talk about the present, the past and the future, and you'll master a range of grammar topics including using the tricky pronouns y and en, when to use qui or que and how to describe people and things.

Coffee Break French Season 2 is aimed at learners who have already completed Season 1, or those returning to French after some time. If you learned French at school but have been away from the language for years, then this course will be the perfect way to review what you once knew. It's all still there - just deeply buried! We'll help you relearn the language and the progression built into the course will allow you to gain confidence and speak more fluently.

How does Coffee Break French work?

Think of Coffee Break French like going for a coffee with your friend who happens to speak French and is helping you learn in a relaxed, enjoyable way. Then add a solid structure and carefully constructed pedagogy which ensures that you progress through the lessons and build on previously-learned language.

Coffee Break French is not a simple series of "listen and repeat" audio programmes: in each lesson Mark explains how the language works, helping Anna - and you - to manipulate the language and use it in practical situations. As a learner Anna asks questions, and makes mistakes, so through Mark's explanations, corrections and pronunciation tips you'll build your confidence and begin to understand and speak the language.

In the same time it takes you to sit down and enjoy a coffee in your favourite coffee shop, you can make progress with your French. Our 15-20 minute lessons are perfect to keep you focused and let you develop your confidence in regular sessions.
