“French 1” is for beginners who have little or no French language skills. Today, many French people in tourist areas speak English, so why study French? To demonstrate appreciation for their culture and thus put a smile on their faces. You do not need a lot of French to get along famously with the French. We will concentrate on key phrases, vocabulary and cultural hints to help you speak courteously and respectfully when shopping, traveling and buying too much delicious food.
