Course Code: CEFR 225
Me and my surroundings
Très bien! You completed your first course in French and you want to keep going. Or maybe you already have some knowledge of French and simply want to improve. Either way, this course will help you function in everyday situations outside the classroom. You'll learn how to tell the world about your life in Montréal: where you live, where you went, who you met, etc. You'll work on basic grammar, spelling and pronunciation, but mostly, you'll learn by having fun in role-playing, listening and speaking activities designed to help you exchange information with others.

Your take-away

This course is a great way to help you:
• Describe people, places and surroundings;
• Summarize written and spoken information;
• Take part in simple conversations;
• Become more spontaneous when speaking;
• Improve your spelling;
• Build vocabulary and choose the right words;
• Improve your understanding of the Québécois accent.

Our approach
