What can I expect?

At Grantham College we offer a range of highly popular languages classes in French, Italian and Spanish. The courses are for people who want to feel more confident when travelling on holiday or want to have a working knowledge of the language.

Which stage is right for you?

Except for the first introductory stage, each stage is six weeks long. They all lead on from the one before; however, you can sign up for any of the stages, depending on your existing knowledge.

Introduction (Leisure & Business - Stage 1) - A three week introductory course for complete beginners

Improvers (Stage 2) – A beginner course, covering topics such as shops and shopping, eating out, expressing your opinions and booking accommodation.

Advanced (Stage 3) – Progressing on from Stage 2, this course will cover topics such as dining out, travelling on public transport, clothes and adjectives. You will also learn regular present tense verbs.

Stage 4 – Moving on from Stage 3, this course may include emergencies, computers and the internet, reporting a crime, as well as using the future tense.

Stage 5 – In this stage we will learn how to talk about events in the past, whilst extending our vocabulary on a wide range of topics.

These courses do not lead to a formal qualification, but are designed around the students’ requirements.
