In this course you will learn how to use the 3 main past tenses in French: the imperfect, the passé-composé and the plus-que-parfait. You will be able to evoke memories, speak about work experiences and understand news stories, or just express past events accurately.

  • Validate your knowledge with quizzes

Feel free to watch the introduction section and the free video previews to see how the course is structured.

Each section covers a specific use of the past in French and allows you to easily develop the four basic linguistic abilities: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Introduction: I will present you the key points of the section in a short video (free preview)

Grammar lecture: learn and practice a specific grammar function with talking head videos and quizzes, to speed up and consolidate the process of learning French grammar

Listening comprehension lecture: listen to an audio recording focusing on the section's grammar point and validate your understanding with a quiz.

Reading comprehension lecture: read a text focusing on the section's grammar point and validate your understanding with a quiz.

Vocabulary lecture: Learn 10 key expressions you can easily include in your spoken French like a native speaker, followed by a quiz.

In Section 5, you will learn how to differentiate and pronounce the sounds [e] and [ɛ] (é/ è) via an entertaining phonetic video and exercises.

Who is the target audience?
  • Students with lower-intermediate to advanced level in French

Certified and Experienced Instructor

Bonjour! I am Anne.

I am passionate about teaching my language, French. I got a Master's degree in French as a Foreign Language (FLE). I started by giving French lessons in different language schools, and at University. I have been teaching French for 8 years.

When I create a class, I always try my best to find fun activities enabling interactions and with interesting documents to study. I don't want you to be bored during my lessons. I am always positive and smiling while I'm teaching. My goal is that my students can speak French, even after only a few classes.

Otherwise as a teacher my objective is for the student to come out of the lesson thinking "I have learned something today, and I have enjoyed myself", and if this is the case then I feel I did my job well.

I would love to be able to help you improve your French, in order for you to reach your goals: whether professional, or to deal better with daily life in a French speaking country, or simply to prepare a trip to France.

I am happy to share my knowledge, tips and advice with you all within this course!

A bientôt!

Anne
