Parlez Francais! This class is for beginners who have very little to no exposure and dream of speaking French, but may be hesitant to learn a new language. French doesn’t have to be intimidating or complicated. This is an introductory course that will cover French language skills as well as culture. Students will learn the alphabet and how to read and write simple sentences in French. You will also learn by developing all four communication skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking, as well as how to respond to greetings and simple commands. In addition to learning this beautiful language, you will gain an understanding and respect for French culture. Instructor Sophie Petit is a native of Nice, France.
