In French Grammar, with Brady, Jeanne, Maia, Bina, Seth, Divya and Luda, we told ourselves to never say “il est un…” ever again.
Once again, we had a look at how to use properly les articles définis et indéfinis. This time, we made it clear of the importance to master this simple and seemingly simple chapter.
At this stage, we’re excited to finalize everything related to the launching of the ALT-French workshop! Stay tuned, announcement soon! In the meantime, we’re also on Rise trying to answer all your questions!
On Tuesday, we had an easy grammar lesson, for a change. Wait a second… Isn’t it easy each time? So, when we’re saying that it’s difficult, and it’s actually easy, what is it that we really mean instead? I wonder!
We saw everything you need to know about Lequel? Laquelle? Auquel? Duquel?
We will go until 100 (one hundred) French conversations for Free, and then we will launch the French-As-a-Foreign-Journey workshop. It’s a workshop to learn French as a Foreign Language by level. There will be 2 groups: the Diamonds (beginners – A1 and above) and the Rubys (intermediate – B1 and above).
French conversations Online is a pioneer in innovation and the implementation of learning French the Fun way.
Inspired by the Seth Godin’s Alt-mba, French Conversations offers an alternative way to level up in French called the Alt-French-Workshop (or French-As-a-Foreign-Journey).
It is a unique way of learning which uses innovative best practices for highly motivated learners who seek high results through immersion.
It’s not for everybody. It’s for highly motivated learners who value immersion and camaraderie.
It’s not your typical everyday French class.
We believe that the person who learns the most in a class is the teacher herself. Hence, we aim at breaking the teacher-learner paradigm.
Therefore, we aim at making you accountable for your learning journey. Our aim is to empower you.
Yes, our highly proficient coaches use the best grammar methods. Yes they are passionate about exposing them in a crystal clear fashion. Yes, they will encourage, and spark the light, but you and only you can make the change you need, and this is even more important than learning grammar rules.
The bottom line is that we all go at our own pace which is perfectly fine especially when we are experiencing flow.
Hence, there is no exam nor any type of prerequisite other than to show up, to trust your journey and to ship it on every single opportunity, along your peers, and no matter what.
We don’t aim at perfection, we aim at progress through action. Mistakes are opportunities to learn. This workshop is a real chance for you to make 9000 mistakes, because making 9000 mistakes is why you will succeed.
See it as a training program, surrounded by highly motivated coaches, using the best learning methods in French as a Foreign Language and traveling along highly motivated peers. You will have curated assignments, group meetings and project dues! Get ready mentally, this is your opportunity to RISE, to level up and to achieve your potential!
As the saying goes, the great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
The ultimate aim of education is to enable individuals to become the architects of their own education and through that process to continually reinvent themselves.
Well done Luda for presenting in Practice presenting in French today! Comme promis, je reviens vers vour avec les réponses aux “double check”, and it’s a CHRYSTAL CLEAR because that’s what it takes to make diamonds!
Pas tous les immeubles en ont > c’est familier, il vaut mieux dire : tous les immeubles n’ont pas un grand mur
Il y a beaucoup pluS de peintures > le S se prononce car c’est le comparatif!
On peut voir D’autres peintures? D’autres, c’est le pluriel de “un autre” Des autres, c’est possible lorsque c’est un partitif: la photo des autres. (contraction de “de + les” => c’est l’appartenance). Autre exemple: La maison des autres personnes. = which belongs to other people (it is not the plural of another!).
Are you a Diamond? Is so, then Jeanne and Nilay are just like you. They’re learning French from its very fundamentals! Their ambition: to build solid foundations using infallible grammar methods and to become hesitation-less!
I guarantee that some Rubys will make mistakes in these seemingly easy chapters.
This is your chance. Make time to review Bilan 2 and to consolidate a solid foundation in French.
