French Language Studies – Dining Out, and Describing People and Places

Course Level 3: Advanced

Estimated Study Time: 2-3 hours

Offered by: Alison

The course, the second in the French Language Studies series, is broken down into the basics of conversation and begins by introducing vocabulary and grammar for talking about food – from meals to shopping to ordering a coffee.

The course then introduces vocabulary and grammar for describing your physical features and your personality, so that you talk about and describe yourself and other people. The course also covers the vocabulary you will need to get around a city, from asking for directions to being able to describe public buildings.

The phonetics section covers syllables, the French R and the correct pronunciation of vowels. The course lays down the foundations of the spoken language by introducing learners to the pronunciation of words and phrases through text and audio. Short audio segments let you hear how the words and phrases are pronounced. These are reinforced with longer videos, including transcripts and translations in English, using related interviews with French speakers.
