This beginner class will cover a range of vocabulary, grammar, and real life situations.

It is perfect for those wanting an introduction to French, or a refresher of the fundamentals. 

"In my class, the language you learn is to be able to communicate. We don't do too much grammar. I give you the tools you need to communicate in practical situations. So for example, talking about your weekend, talking about yourself, or using numbers in relevant situations." - Emma

Subjects covered: talking about your weekend, useful words and sentences for class, time, weather, talking about yourself and family, physical descriptions, numbers, and food.

Tenses, grammar, and pronunciation: the futur proche and the passé composé, partitives ("some"), nasal vowels.

Speaking will be emphasized!
