If you have reached this page, you probably want to learn French, not English! Bonne nouvelle, this course is 100% in French, mostly with videos, created and presented by Anne Le Grand, an experienced native teacher.
Whatever your objective or level in French, mastering the past tenses is vital to communicate.
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.
Master each tense individually in context and learn how to use them together in this French immersive course.
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.

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!
