French Online Classes – 5th Year

Learn from the Comfort of your Home

Due to COVID-19, students all over Ireland have missed out on valuable learning time. Here at French Notes, we have put together an online French programme, to give 5th Year students some extra tuition during the year.  Our classes are held once a week.

For 5th years, classes will focus on showing students how to engage with the senior level syllabus. Students will learn how to express themselves both orally and through written exercises. They will also be shown how to properly approach the Reading and Listening components of the exam.

The 5th year class is a gentle introduction to Leaving Cert French. The instructor will be guiding them through the paper and showing them how to tackle the skills of reading, writing and listening. We will do a bit of oral work, but the emphasis is really on gaining mastery over the grammar and approach to the paper.

The classes are approximately one hour per week. This includes any notes provided from  A student can do as many or as few lessons as they need. The lessons will be transmitted through Zoom.

I completed the summer classes going into 6th year and found them very beneficial. Each week, a new topic was covered and every element of the course was covered weekly – listening, oral, written as well as grammar. The grammar was explained very comprehensively and I got a great grasp on it, which has enhanced my written pieces. Liz helped me with my pronunciation which was something I struggled with and this definitely improved my oral skills. Overall, the classes were excellent and I am going into 6th year with a higher standard of French.

I have never been the most confident when it came to learning French or speaking it. Taking up these extra classes has been extremely helpful. I have been able to revise topics that I have learned in school and learn extra phrases and skills that can be used in all aspects of my French exams. I’ve enjoyed how interactive the classes are because personally I learn a language better when I’m involved rather than just taking notes. Thanks to these classes,I do feel more comfortable with French than I did before and I am not as worried about my French leaving cert. I would recommend considering these classes if you are someone who feels as though a little extra help is needed. They have definitely been worth my time and money.

Students will be advised of the dates in advance, and while students are free to choose which classes to attend, it would be more beneficial to finish the entire course. Students may choose to pay for each class in advance, or for the entire course in advance.

During the classes, students will be encouraged to interact with their teacher and other attendees. Notes for individual classes will be sent as soon as the booking is completed by the student. If a student books several classes in advance, the notes will be sent at least 48 hours in advance of each class booked.
