About this course

This course is designed for learners who are new to French and who learn best by having fun. It will give students the opportunity to build a foundational understanding of the language by practising their listening, speaking and writing French skills through reading and engaging tasks.

As students learn best by doing, a variety of interactive games and activities will be used. We will learn using songs, games, role-playing and most importantly, fun! Every class will begin with a review of the previous class, as the best way to learn a new language is to practice and reinforce.  

Learning a new language can be intimidating, this class aims to make language learning fun and put students at ease in order to create a safe and welcoming learning environment. J’espère de vous voir en classe! (I hope to see you in class!)
