"Master Spoken French" Program - Level 01

French Vocabulary and Pronunciation

  • Sound French (even to the French!): Modern spoken French vocabulary and pronunciation 101
  • Stop sounding like a textbook and start using vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar from the 21st century. For example, stop using the unnecessary "ne" in negation.
  • Understand French slang (incl. swear words) and how to use it (and when to use polite French instead). For all ages, this isn't "youth" French - it's real spoken French.
  • Gain confidence and respect by speaking French like French people do. You understand AND are understood (at last).
  • Train your ear to real spoken French by listening to recordings of articulated vs real (fast) spoken French dialogues. Stop relying on slow artificial CD French.

Thanks to Geraldine and her courses I now know the exquisite thrill of a smile of recognition from a francophone when I use a colloquial phrase she’s taught me. Now every time I visit ‘ma cantine’ we speak French. Confidence is so important.

I love languages, and I wanted to improve my french from high school with real, spoken french so I could travel abroad. I loved having the insight of a native french speaker and I was surprised by all the little subtleties about spoken french. Instead of learning lists of vocabulary, it’s more like nuances that a non-native would take a while to pick up on.

I hesitated to join without real cause – should have acted sooner. I am more motivated to practice and study. The course has re-ignited my enthusiasm for preparing for my next visit to France.
