They will learn how to introduce themselves and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where they live, people they know, and things they have. They will learn to interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

AVAILABLE COURSES: A1.1, A1.2, A1.3, A1 Review, as well as a few workshops (e.g. French Pronunciation).

French and English languages share many similarities due to their long historical relationship. However, "une librairie" is a bookstore, a "car" is a bus, a "habit" is a clothing item, and the "pain" has nothing to do with pain! This essential workshop will help you avoid common false friends and also discover the different uses of prepositions and meanings of idiomatic expressions between English and French.
