If you have no previous experience with French, this course, with its fun relaxed atmosphere, is designed especially for you. Starting with the alphabet and the basics of French pronunciation, you’ll learn to introduce yourself, and as you become familiar with common French expressions, you’ll be able to create simple short phrases to manage everyday situations. The objective of the course is to begin to think in French and to become comfortable speaking the language. This is a conversation class, and as practice is the key to successful language acquisition, class participation is strongly encouraged. Arezou Hashemi’s teaching philosophy is to make language learning simple and fun.
