Welcome to our French Distance Subject Knowledge Enhancement Programme.

The French Subject Knowledge Enhancement course aims to refresh, consolidate, and improve your subject knowledge to be accepted onto initial teacher training, or if you feel that additional learning would be beneficial.
Throughout the modules you will develop your language skills; practise vocabulary and grammar; promote independent learning, improve meta-cognitive skills and develop your ability to identify and address your own learning needs. You will also learn about cultural differences in the Francophone world.
The focus of the SKE course is on language acquisition for everyday situations and is suitable for those starting at a wide range of language levels.

This course is either 8 or 12 weeks (25 hours per week).
