Course Outline

The following are some of the topics and activities covered during the program:

  • Proper pronunciation in French
  • Basic grammar (accents, verbs, etc.)
  • Lots of vocabulary (general conversation, weather, daily activities, travel, etc.)
  • Forming questions
  • Practical/conversational French that is helpful in everyday situations.
  • Many opportunities to practice speaking French in a very relaxed atmosphere where you will definitely feel at ease!
  • Students are encouraged to ask for additional work (either homework to do or supplemental vocabulary, for example) and there is lots of one-on-one attention given to each student! Because of our small numbers, we are able to incorporate your specific needs and interests into the program - please discuss this with me so I can consider your needs as I design the program!

Typical class size is 10-15 students, which ensures lots of one-on-one instruction time for everyone in the class.
