Yorkshire French

Business

These courses run at several different levels and are put together initially using an analysis of the learner’s real needs.

For beginners, it is vital to have a knowledge of basic business etiquette, greetings and how to introduce oneself.

At more advanced levels courses will meet the needs of those involved in import/export, international negotiations, jobseekers in companies where French is essential, and those who have frequent dealings with France.

Even with none, or very little knowledge of French, our “Business French for Beginners” course will provide the skills necessary to send formal and informal letters and e-mails, deal with phone calls, messages and numbers, and make social conversation with French colleagues.
