Event Details

Bonjour!

Idlewild’s language courses are fun and practical, and were included in the "Best of New York 2012" issue of New York Magazine.

This course will be taught in our beautiful new store in Williamsburg, not a stuffy classroom. Class size is limited to 15 so everyone gets a chance to speak in every session.

Our French classes are taught by Maurice Jean-Baptiste Brochet, a native of Paris with several years' teaching experience at Berlitz, the Rennert School, and Idlewild.

Is this class for you?

Our French for Beginners course is an introduction to the French language, and includes presentation and practice of the following situations and grammar topics:

  • greetings and introductions
  • talking about yourself (nationality, family, profession, likes and dislikes) 
  • ordering in a restaurant 
  • months, seasons, dates and weather 
  • describing people and things 
  • travel by plane, train and bus (making reservations, buying tickets, etc) 
  • asking for and giving directions 
  • regular and irregular verbs 
  • feminine and masculine adjectives 
  • negations 
  • numbers and their applied use (prices, dates, years, etc) 
  • forming and using the simple present tense - forming and using the immediate future tense

Each of the eight lessons includes teacher presentation and student participation, including pair work.

About our courses

Our teachers employ a dynamic method that emphasizes grammar and vocabulary but is focused primarily on spoken profiency and oral comprehension. Students begin speaking in full sentences from the very first class.

The beginner, advanced beginner and intermediate courses follow a text (not included in the course price but available to students for the discounted price of around $18 with tax).

There are no make-up classes. On the first day of class, each student will receive a syllabus that lists the weekly assignments so you can keep up with your studies if you have to miss a class.


If you wish to cancel your registration, you must contact Idlewild by telephone or email at least seven days before the start date of your class to receive a refund. 

If you wish to postpone your registration to a later session, you must contact Idlewild by telephone or email at least three days before the start date of your class to receive a credit toward a future session (good for one year).
