Course Overview


Online Bitesize French Level 3 is an Elementary French course for students who have already studied some French. The Bitesize course is a less intensive version than the standard Level 3 courses. The course schedule is different with one-hour weekly lessons (17.15-18.15) spread across 12 weeks, however the course content is exactly the same. If you’re unsure of your level, then take our quick French language level test here or check our levels chart.


Our Online French language classes take place via Zoom with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. The interactive lessons emulate our face-to-face classes, and via teacher screen-sharing, students are able to experience a live classroom environment. From vocabulary activities and covering grammar points on the white board, to listening exercises, file sharing and ‘break-out rooms’ to practise speaking with classmates, students can learn without leaving the comfort of their homes. Take a look at an example of one of our online classes in this video.
