French Level 3
In Hansa's Level 3 French course, students briefly review everything covered in level 1 and 2 and then go on to study chapters 44 to 60 of Grammaire Progressive du Français. Topics include le futur proche; le passé composé;the imperfect; prepositions such as pendant, depuis and dans; negation; pronouns such as en, lui, qui, que, moi, toi and y.
French Level 4
Hansa's Level 4 French course focuses on vocabulary and speaking. The book Vocabulaire Progressive du Français is used as the primary resource. Topics covered include French culture; formal and polite expressions; relationships; emotions; physical attributes and movements; fashion, shopping and clothing; personality; geography; professions; travel. Upon completion of this level, students will be able to understand a great deal of French and will have little difficulty being understood.
French Level 5
The French Level 5 course uses the book Grammaire Progressive du Français – Niveau Intermediaireas the main resource. The course begins with a review of grammar covered in the earlier levels, then goes on to cover more complex topics such as relative clauses, past tenses, conditionals, the subjunctive, and the plus-que-parfait. Students at this level are able to understand French music and radio broadcasts and speak with little difficulty. After level 5, we recommend lots of review and practice through either private instruction or programs at one of Hansa's partner schools in Quebec or France.
