It is probably well known that the association Familles Rurales at St Yrieix offers courses in French for English people living in France.

But did you know that they are at FIVE different levels, from absolutely basic to a level of fluency that you may have already acquired ?   This higher-level course is based on more than just language and grammar  - it deals also with French life, culture and politics, by the study of articles from the press and other sources, thus facilitating integration in the community and participation in its activities.

  Level 4                                  Saturdays       10h-12h                          

  Level 5 (see above)            Wednesdays  14h30-16h30
