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!
