Carol BennellHost: Carol - BA (Hons) French and German, PCGE Secondary MFL, TEFL - has over 20 years of teaching experience, and teaches French and German to GCSE level. She is also a private tutor and has been tutoring for almost 10 years!

In this class Ms Bennell will introduce and go through use of the pluperfect tense (past perfect in English). This will be a useful exercise to master now, to help display a variety of different tenses during writing exams- especially for those in the higher tier. 

Perfecting the tenses is a key and fundamental skill for any French student who wishes to excel in their studies.
