The lessons focus on listening, reading, writing and most importantly speaking.

Students taking 24 or 30 French lessons per week options benefit from more exposure in the classroom, which is extremely valuable. As you engage and absorb more, you will naturally adjust to thinking and communicating in your chosen language. This is a great course for developing fluency.
