This class is designed for “advanced beginners.” You have had some French experience in the past or you think you are “kind of” a beginner and you want to move on!
Build a strong foundation. Acquire the most frequent French words and structures used in everyday conversations. These super words and expressions will allow you to communicate in the greatest number of contexts. They will also help you understand the general gist of most conversations. They are super useful!
In each session you will:
- Respond to directions with actions
- Listen to compelling stories
- Co-create fun stories
- Read French with ease
- Engage in conversations about your interests.
There will be framing and scaffolding for everyone to understand the class. The goal is to boost your French and to boost your confidence to speak French naturally.
There is no pressure to speak! As your French comprehension expands and expands, speaking will spontaneously happen. ” Speaking is a result of language acquisition and not its cause.” (Krashen, 1985).
