Have you always wanted to read Les Misérables or The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo, Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince) by Antoine de St-Exupéry, and L’Étranger (The Stranger) by Albert Camus in their original French language? Now is your chance because this course will teach you how to read a complete novel in French.
Novels and books are usually written in more formal writing than you may encounter in spoken language. It’s important to read in another language to help you build vocabulary and familiarize yourself with more complex and advanced grammar. This course will teach you about many of the advanced grammar concepts in the French language, like the subjunctive.
What makes this course unique?
PRACTICAL: My approach to improving your reading skills in French is very practical. You will learn grammar, vocabulary, and writing conventions that you will actually encounter in a book, novel, or text written in French.
READING TOGETHER: This course is structured around the reading of famous French novels, like Le Petit Prince by Antoine de St-Exupéry. In each module, we read through a chapter together. Then, we dissect all of the grammatical components of the chapter and some important vocabulary before we put it all back together again. By the end of the course, you will have read an entire novel on your own.
PRONUNCIATION: Not only will you improve your reading skills, but this course includes a pronunciation component so that you can hear all of the words in each chapter read out loud.
French is spoken on every continent around the world, and it is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Learning to read in French can help you not only read novels, but to read social media, academic articles, professional or legal documents, and everyday items like labels or signs all in French.
What will you be able to do after the course is finished?
