    I finally had a conditional offer and I need to do an 8 week SKE in French.

    I work full time and I wondered if anyone has done it already?
    Is it feasible?

    Is it online or face to face? I had to attend a face to face one. It was hard work, but brilliant.

    I did an online one in which you had to do the units on Rosetta Stone. It was pretty useless as there was no actual teaching!

    A full-time in person one would be much better. You say you have a full-time job but at the end of the day you'll have to quit your job for the PGCE so why not do the full-time one? You do realise you get money for it? At least when I was applying for it there was a kind of stipend and you got to go on a fully-paid trip to France (e.g. La Rochelle or Paris), however, of course there are limited places. An online one might not prepare you as well though even at that I doubt an 8 week course would prepare you to teach the subject.

    With French, spelling and pronunciation is very difficult to grasp at the early stages. It takes time.
