This total immersion course is designed for students who are able to create sentences in French using learned vocabulary and expressions in basic social situations. While students may make mistakes, and pause to find the right word or to self-correct, they are generally understood by sympathetic native speakers who are accustomed to non-native fluency. The emphasis will be on perfecting listening and speaking skills in a variety of authentic cultural contexts, as well as increasing vocabulary and grammatical accuracy. The course is taught in a very visual way making it fun and easy to make rapid progress towards advanced proficiency. We will use film and current events to provide cultural context.
