The Student’s Guide to French Grammar
After many years of teaching I wrote this book in order to facilitate the learning process. The Student’s Guide to French Grammar was published by Pearson Canada in 2011. It is an extremely user-friendly and accessible manual that presents all grammatical topics in a one-page format.
Students are encouraged to use apps such as Duolingo and Babbel as well as to listen to French language acquisition methods such as the Michel Thomas Method, Learn French in your Car, Coffee Break French and Pimsleur.
After approximately 80 hours of contact classes, students will write an exam called the DELF A1 professionnel or the DELF A1 tous publics
Each level would require + 80 hours of contact classes.
This exam is an internationally recognised diploma in French as a foreign language.
The DELF A1 professionnel exam is a diploma in business French as opposed to the DELFA1 tous publics, which is a diploma in general French.
Students will be prepped for the DELF A1 professionnel/tous publics exam by writing sample papers.
The DELF professionnel exams have a total of 4 levels A1, A2, B1 and B2.
The DELF tous publics exams have a total of 6 levels A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.
The DELF exams take place twice a year and are done through an internationally recognised language institute.
