Course Description

Instructor: Monika Hastings.


Monika Hastings builds on some of the lessons taught in the Spring intermediate French class. Priority registration will be given to members who were enrolled in the Spring class.


For those who have a working knowledge of low intermediate or intermediate French, this program offers an exciting way to improve or refresh your skills. We will study various aspects of grammar and vocabulary and tie them together with dynamic and fun speaking exercises for communicating in French-speaking countries and provinces. All materials will be provided. If you wish to travel to France or Quebec, communicate with French-speaking friends or refresh your knowledge of French, this course is for you. Students should be able to speak comfortably in the present tense and have reasonable knowledge of the past and future tenses. 


Monika has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Modern Languages (French and Russian) from the University of Oxford, UK. She spent several years living in France as a child and then later lived in Paris for 4 years as an adult. She has taught French for many years, in companies, the government, community centres and to private individuals in various countries. She has a very strong knowledge of the intricacies of French grammar and likes to teach grammar and vocabulary in a structured way and follow it up with lots of speaking practice to consolidate what has been studied. She likes to make sure that students have the opportunity to speak as much as possible and uses different techniques to help them to assimilate the material studied.

Join Francesca for this 6-week continuation from last season's intermediate 1 course.


Benvenuti!

Our journey into Italian language and culture continues.

In this course we will master the foundational elements of Italian language. You will enhance your listening, reading, speaking and writing skills in the context of everyday situations in the present and past tenses. You will be able to use simple vocabulary, structures and formulas in order to engage an everyday conversation with an Italian native speaker.

Ci vediamo presto!

 

Francesca was born and raised in Lecco, a small city on beautiful lake Como. She studied in Milan at Statale University and in Rome at Tor Vergata University. She also holds a Master's degree in Speech language Pathology. She has worked for over 10 years in Italy as a Speech Language Therapist with both children and adults.


Francesca moved to Vancouver in September 2018, a dream from when she was young. She enjoys helping people overcome language barriers and successfully communicate. She enjoys teaching Italian because she can share her culture and learn about other cultures as well.
