Il faut savoir, You've got to learn ... it's the title of a famous song by Charles Aznavour and if there is one thing you need to know when you want to learn French it's the tenses and verbs. This is what most terrorizes foreigners who decide to learn French. This course does not consist of a simple list of verbs and endings (you can find as many as you want on the internet). I propose a method that will allow you to simplify the conjugations by grouping the verbs into large categories and to better understand when to use one mode rather than another. I try to make you accept these verbs and not to fear them anymore. And I do this on the basis of the difficulties that my students have encountered. I offer you a journey of knowledge and discovery. Each of the 20 lessons has a specific objective that you will be asked to practice on. You will have to practice on verbal forms that you will be able to find in 5 seconds. You will find this exercise and others in the pdf documents that accompany each lesson.
This course is entirely in French and is designed for those who already have a basic knowledge of the language and who want to improve their level of oral and written comprehension and expression. The course is enriched with numerous examples reproduced on the screen which considerably facilitate the understanding of the lessons.

Who this course is for:
- Everybody willing to improve his knowledge of French
I was born in Paris, I studied law at University in Paris and then language teaching methods through audiovisual systems, receiving appropriate training.
I have taught French in Italy in schools of conference interpreting and translation, and language high school. Then I realized audiovisual courses for the teaching of English: English between friends and especially Live from England, shot entirely in England with the participation of more than 80 professional actors.
This course led me to work in the USA where I created the audiovisual production department at the Berlitz School of Languages in Princeton New Jersey, on behalf of the publishing company Macmillan, then owner of the brand Berlitz.
in America, I became a member of the American Film Institute.
Back in Europe, I made numerous cultural films, reportages, documentaries as director and filmmaker, mainly in Africa and Asia, with several reports and films broadcasted by RAI and other broadcasters.
I recently made a French video-course in two versions. One, entitled "il francese per te", specific for Italian native speakers and the other entitled "French for you" aimed at the English-speaking world. My experience as a teacher taught me that the difficulties for learning French or English are different depending on the mother tongue of the students.
