Beginning Conversational French

with Ed2Go.com/yace ., York Adult Education

Calendar Current session started Oct 1, 2020

Proper pronunciation is important to good communication. Beginning Conversational French will help you master the best pronunciations. Simply click on each word to hear it spoken. Every word and sentence is also written out phonetically.

This course has been carefully crafted to ensure you will have no trouble pronouncing French words correctly. The first three lessons introduce the basics needed for most conversations in French, such as "please" and "thank you." You will also learn numbers, days of the week, months of the year, and telling time.

The entire course is structured in this logical, systematic method. After the introduction and basic conversation lessons, you will learn what to say at the airport. From the airport, you need to get to your hotel, so you will learn how to talk about transportation. The following lesson shows you how to talk to hotel employees. After you have settled into your hotel, you will probably be hungry, so the course also covers how to communicate in restaurants.

Each lesson also includes cultural tips. Hand and body gestures mean different things in different cultures. For example, do you know the proper way to point to avoid offending people in France? This course will tell you. You will be pleased with your quick progress, and you will be prepared for your next trip!
