SUMMER 2011 - French for Beginners
Idlewild’s language courses are both fun and practical, and have been recommended by Daily Candy and New York Magazine.
The classes are taught in our beautiful store, not a stuffy classroom, by dynamic and experienced native speakers. Class size is limited to 12, 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 more than 10 years’ experience teaching in New York, including at Berlitz and the Rennert School.
Is this class for you?
Our 10-week French for Beginners course is an introduction to the French language, and includes presentation and practice of the following situations and grammar topics:
Each of the ten lessons includes teacher presentation and student participation, including pair or group 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.
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 $15.99).
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).
Idlewild is an international bookstore specializing in travel, world lit, and foreign languages.
We also offer language classes in French, Spanish and Italian. Our classes were recently included in the "Best of New York 2012" issue of New York Magazine and are taken by more than 2000 New Yorkers every year.
