DO YOU SPEAK FRENCH? MAIS OUI!!!

Fluency Self – confidence Learning

This text, by itself, is useful for the students who know some French and want to enrich their vocabulary and become aware of the differences between French and English in expressing themselves verbally and in writing. 
 
However, its impact is in the comments, interviews, reviews, presented in 27 videos, divided in 6 lessons, that provide the students with what they need to know in order to become able to speak French properly, know what they say, use it instantly in context and write it correctly. Every lesson offers the students the opportunity to express themselves verbally in French, through question and anwer sessions, interviews, reviews, and relevant comments highlighting the common errors that Anglophone students must avoid making in expressing themselves properly in French.
 
Through an innovative methodology, a creative approach and relevant content, this comprehensive course helps students stay in touch, daily, with the French language, at their own pace and time and in the comfort of their own home, express themselves properly and digest basic grammar rules. Its well researched concept, the product of over 40 years of experience in teaching French, represents a bridge between what students learn at school and what they expect to learn at the university or college.
This course is extremely useful for:
- high school students, in Core, French and French Immersion Programs.
- FSL teachers, French supply and occasional teachers, parents, professionals, university graduates and adults who, despite the many French courses taken, are still looking for that Magic Baguette to help them raise their level of verbal fluency in French, rather than their level of frustration, and prepare them, in a real and not perceived way, to never say again:
"I understand the question but I am not FLUENT enough to respond".

Testimonials:
 "This course is a useful and interactive method of teaching. Personally, I am more of a visual/auditory learner, so simply reading something will not allow me to fully understand or memorize it. Your videos were clear and concise and gave very useful information.

Most people want to jump to the difficult and more complex topics when learning a new language, mainly to fast track their learning, but what they do not realize is that when you learn a new language, you need to fully and thoroughly understand the basics before you can move forward.

The information presented through the videos were common errors that people don't even realize they may be using. It was good to have the correct version of a simple sentence or rule to guide people when writing. Since you incorporated the videos, I had the opportunity to read along while you spoke. I also made good notes on the things you said. What helped me was that you didn't simply follow word-for-word what the text said. You almost interacted with the listener and gave additional information to make the reading easier and understandable.

Overall, the concepts in your course helped me make a comfortable transition into my first year university French class. When I understood the concepts, it made me feel better prepared for the future of French studies. I found this course to be very useful and enlightening not only for university students but also for high school students. It could prepare them for university French and make them more aware of some of the common mistakes in the French language."
