Meeting at 8:30 on Wednesday. More advanced students are encouraged to come around 9:00. We'll break around 10. We'll start our first class on 6/24.


A bit of background on me:

I lived in both France and Quebec for about 10 years. I learned to speak French while living in both places, so the French I'll be teaching is very much how people talk. Also, because I learned French by hearing and speaking it, my French writing skills are craptastic, so I am planning to focus more on conversational French. If someone else is a wiz at writing French, speak up!

If you could write down your name and your level of French below that would be really helpful.

French Lessons -- Greater focus on traditional learning with a heavier emphasis on grammar


Beginners

  • Mitch I can sorta order food in French.
  • dpc i lived in france for about a year, during which i learned enough french to be a danger to myself.


Intermediate

  • Noah - interested, but probably won't make it on many Wednesdays for a while - I can get around ok in French, but would need a lot of practice to become fluent
  • Billy - i've been out of practice since high school.
  • Jeremy I can have simple conversations. I have one year of college French, plus several years of Spanish and three minus epsilon degrees in Linguistics, which makes me a good faker. I also have motivation: big fan of Franco-Belgian comics, and my wife is a native Francophone.
