What you'll learn in this basic french class:

We get it, you don’t know anything more than “ooh la la” and “fromage,” or maybe you’ve taken a decade off. Either way, you’re ready for that all to change with French 1. This class is perfect for you if you're completely new to the language and you want to get the basics down to start speaking conversational French.

Level 1 is taught in English and is for those who want to start at the very beginning with French or for those who took a little bit of French in high school. If you’ve never taken a language class before, don’t worry – we will walk you through the basics and explain verb conjugations, vocab learning tips, etc.

If you can struggle through saying things in French like: I am American, I study French, I like football, or I have a dog, then you should check the Level 2 descriptions to be sure a Level 2 class isn't more appropriate for you.

  • Grammaire Progressive du Français (Niveau debutant) (ISBN: 978-2090381146)
  • You'll also need a copy of Our French 1 Packet, which we provide at no cost! Be sure to download it and bring it along to your first class.

Question from Cynthia
If I miss 1 class due to a work obligation, how far behind will I get? I'd have to miss class number 8.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Cynthia! Most students do miss a class, or two, and Fluent City is here to help ensure that you won’t fall behind despite any missed classes. They have set up the curriculum to make lessons easy to follow along outside of class, and your teacher will reach out to your group each week with a summary of materials, topics, and homework covered in-class. It also helps to inform the instructor in advance that you will miss a class. Hope this helps!

Great course and excellent teacher! Great mixture of learning, practicing, and listening to music/videos. Learned a lot in ten weeks from absolutely zero French knowledge to being able to construct basic sentences.

Jeremiah was great at helping us make real life, memorable connections to the French language. The class hops around a bit, which make it a little difficult to go back to your notes if you're looking for something specific, but I think the tempo and order of how we learned things made sense over time. Level one catered to people like me who haven't practiced French in 10 years, but remembered bits and tidbits, but also to complete novices as it was primarily taught in English. The instructor's at-home suggestions (sites/references/apps to use) were super helpful and while the homework isn't necessary his feedback will only help you learn the language better. The location is great, small classes (under 10 students) and time frame are all very convenient. Would highly recommend!

The class was so informal and the teacher focused continually on one student in the room. There was little to no homework given nor any support given. Essentially folks, this class is $400 and should be labeled as self-taught.
