French Language Studies – Introduction is an online course which is designed for anyone who wants to learn to speak basic French.
The course, the first in a series, is broken down into pronunciation of the alphabet, numbers and words and the basics of conversation, covering hello, goodbye and introductions, time and days. 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 to English, using related interviews with French speakers. You will learn how to greet people and address them correctly, both formally and informally.
This course will be of great interest to anyone who wants to learn to speak French for use in business or social occasions, and for those wanting to travel to any French speaking country or region.
