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 Hastings is your instructor.
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.
