French Language Conversation Classes - Level 2

Part of: French Language Conversation Classes

Course description

This course is for beginners to practice oral French. It can be taken multiple times, as themes will vary each term. This course will not prepare you for the next level. Students who wish to progress to an advanced level should register in Comprehensive French.
Register for this course if you have taken Level 1 (formerly Introductory) or if you know how to: count up 20, spell your name, give your address and phone number, identify basic shapes and colours, ask/ answer basic yes or no questions and speak about; yourself; your family; your work; the weather; time and date.

Learning objectives

Students in this level will learn and practice language skills needed in simple everyday situations such as:

  • speaking on the telephone to make reservations
  • asking for and giving directions
  • giving a definition
  • clarifying a statement
  • asking and answering information questions (where, when who, what, how, why)
  • introduction to tenses other than the present


You can register for this level if you have taken the Level 1 (formerly Introductory) course at least once, or if you already know how to do the following in French:

  • count up to 20
  • spell your name
  • give your address and phone number
  • speak about yourself, your family, your work, the weather or the time and date
  • identify basic shapes and colours
  • ask and answer basic yes/no questions

Additional Information

This level can be taken as many times as necessary. It’s not intended to take students directly to the Level 3 (formerly Intermediate) level.

Students who wish to study in a program where they can move steadily from one level to the next—and where emphasis is also put on the written language—are encouraged to take courses in the Comprehensive French series instead.


French Language courses are offered three times per year:

  • September (registration opens in June)
  • January (registration opens in November)
  • April (registration opens in November)
