Course Description

This Instructional Course on How to Speak French (with audio clips) is a fast, fun, and manageable way to learn French in your own time.  This guide starts at the beginning assuming you know nothing about French and walks you through, simple lesson by simple lesson, until you come out speaking about your daily routines, what you did yesterday, last year or in 1999, and what you are going to do tomorrow or in the year 2020.  Along the way, you will find explanations, examples and activities that give you the building blocks to construct a base for the French language, often called the language of love.


This self-paced course is designed to give you the basics in grammar and vocabulary but always focusing on the verbal aspect that allows you to communicate as soon as possible. In order to get the most out of this guide, you must actively work with it, completing the exercises, working on the activities and having fun.
