Learning a foreign language challenges the intellect, enriches the spirit, and allows you to call the Norwegian royal family to tell them they are a ridiculous concept. Dial into dialects with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $99 for 10 hours of group French-grammar classes (a $235 value)
- $179 for 20 hours of group French-grammar classes (a $470 value)
Trained, experienced instructors who are also native French speakers guide up to 12 adult students through personalized classes in three levels of grammar instruction. Each 10-hour course session follows a format of 10 weekly 60-minute lessons or seven weekly 90-minute lessons. Though this Groupon is valid for all grammar levels, a new Beginning French 1(a) session starts on Wednesday, May 30, at 7:30 p.m. Students with some experience will be assessed to determine the best class level.
While they're picking up the language, students are allotted 90 minutes of free parking behind Vroman's Bookstore. After each class, teachers send out audio files for home study or fooling guests into thinking the sofa has learned French.
La Petite Ecole Française
French-born writer and school director Caroline fills teaching positions at La Petite Ecole Française with only native French speakers. That way, students will be guided through grammar, vocabulary, and conversational styles as they're currently used in Francophone countries, rather than relying on the potentially outdated info available from textbooks or someone who's just watched Children of Paradise several times. A wide range of programs helps bilingual students stay in touch with their French side and introduces adult learners to solid fundamentals. Special events deepen cultural awareness with movie screenings and art-exhibit visits.
