learning french

the basics

It is about words, sentences, speech and thoughts.

At around 1000 words you begin feeling good.

At around 3 000 words, speech is enabled.

At around 6 000 words, you may begin to think in french.

Learn the 4 skills of the language at the same time: reading, listening, writing and speaking. I find that they help each others in the process. 

Learn Standard French, the one you will be understood with almost everywhere French is spoken.

Learn a specific terminology related to a specific activity of your interest.

Learn to understand the pronunciation and other language habits of people speaking French in Quebec or in South of France.

Learn the skill you need to own a balanced use of the 4 skills of the language. 

Learn to embody the language skills as you learn them.


practical information

call for diversity !

 Georgette’s long time moto has been that

life is a mosaic; diversity is essential

Georgette has been (without much success and with even painful maladresses) and is still trying to include human diversity in the groups she interacts and works with. Georgette will do her best to diversify the ways she offers training so that interested persons could select the most appropriate one. 

On-Line Audio-Visual learning !

My teaching of the French language is OnLine/Audio-Visual:

1- to prevent the spread of Covid-19

2- to protect the environment

3- to give more chance to the learners to engage in the listening/talking pair of skills usually lagging behind the reading/writing skills. 

in order to respect every and each learner, my timing is strict . We begin on time and we end on time.
