Course Description:

Publisher's Description:  French work by Arthur M. Jensen to teach French via the natural method.
Work is written in French and designed to help learners gain a fluent grasp of the language.
By the Natural Language Method.

Spoken as a first language by over 77 million, and as a second language by almost 200 million people,
French is one of the modern descendants of ancient Latin.

In this class, we will read as much of the book Le Français par la Métode Nature as we are able.
We will not finish the book by the end of the year, but students will have the
tools to complete the book on their own.

Just to be clear, I am not fluent in French. I am simply inviting students to study with me.
I will provide lots of recommendations to master pronunciation.

I teach this same course for a half-hour each morning on my site:
Students will receive a free subsription to my site.
A subscription grants access to every live class I teach.
It also grants access to all of the previous classes on my site.
I record every class I teach, and I only take them down if I am updating them.
Currently, there are around 2,500 videos all arranged by units.

Course Class Time:

  • We will spend our time reading, speaking, and practicing the language.


Course Homework Requirements:

  • Homework will be the same every week.
    I will ask the students to read, and re-read the chapter we are in.
    I suggest students read the chapter at least once each day, six days a week.
    This should take about 15 minutes a day.
    Daily contact with the language is better than sporadic cramming.
