Course Overview

Improve your French conversation skills in this multi-part class that focuses on conversational fluency and accuracy. It's a great next-step if you have a high-beginning/low-intermediate or above understanding of French and can already communicate your basic needs. The course will build your competence and confidence as you successfully navigate critical but everyday conversational scenarios. You will also focus on improving your French pronunciation.
