Course Description

French Level 2 is the second part to the introductory French course. Learners will be learn ways to make more complex sentences and be introduced to the past tense. By the end of the course, successful learners will be able to build more complex sentences, respond to spoken questions with more precision, and be able to talk about events in the past, present, and future. The only prerequisite for this course is to have taken French Level 1 OR be able to ask questions and introduce oneself in French.

French is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world and is the official languages of countries all across the world.

There are also a number of cognitive benefits to learning a second language. Some studies suggest that learning a second language is a great way to keep your mind in shape.

Instructor Biography

Dillon March, French & Italian Instructor, Language Lover

As a Canadian native, I have always been surrounded by French culture and language. From my degree in French, my knowledge of French has been deepened and allowed me to help others to understand French better. I have taught a number of students in French and have allowed them to further develop their language ability. Formerly an English tutor, I am no stranger to the classroom. I hold a certification in Adult Education at Humber College and another in French-English Workplace Translation. Having learned French as a second language myself, I am able to relate to my students much more so than a native speaker of French would be able to. I speak French, English, Italian, and Spanish fluently and have an elementary knowledge of Mandarin, Portuguese, and German.
