Beginner Level Group Classes

Beginning French teaches the fundamentals of listening, speaking, reading, and writing French. Common themes covered are greetings, exchanging simple information, restaurant, travel, family, weather, activities and shopping. Students learn correct pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary through student interactions while exploring French and francophone cultures.

As students progress through the beginning levels, new thematic units and vocabulary are introduced such as clothing, careers, daily routines and activities, foods, transportation, and directions. Through paired and group activities, simple conversations, dictations, and grammatical patterns students learn to comprehend, ask and answer questions, and follow instructions in French. Students explore writing and reading while expanding their vocabulary and command of the language.

Intermediate Level Group Classes

Intermediate classes offer a variety of approaches in advancing students’ speaking, reading and writing facilities. Ongoing classes include French for Everyday Situations for levels B1 and B2, Early Intermediate grammar and speaking, and a Reading class designed to improve comprehension and speaking skills.

Advanced Level Group Classes

Advanced-level students continue to improve their communication skills by summarizing information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation, and expressing themselves spontaneously and fluently with videos, dictations, and discussion.
