Whether you are currently taking French at a secondary school like Veritas School or Open High School or you are pursuing a degree from a nearby college like the University of Richmond or the Virginia Commonwealth University, learning a language without additional support can be challenging. There is no reason to spend hours reviewing alone when you can easily have the support of other language learners and the guidance of a skilled instructor to help you work on developing your skill in French.

Even if you aren't studying French in school, there are still many reasons you may want to take a Richmond French class. French is not only one of the most beautiful romance languages in the world, but it is also a powerhouse in the fields of international trade and business. If you want to travel to France or other French-speaking countries, knowing the language can make it easier to become fully immersed in the cultural experience. You'll be able to learn where locals like to go and approach your excursions with greater confidence in your ability to communicate with those around you. If you've spent years in a career field and now want more options, becoming fluent in French can provide many new opportunities which may give you an advantage over other candidates.

What skills can a Richmond French course help me learn?

A course can help you work on the six core elements necessary to learn a language; memorization, listening, speaking, pronunciation, writing, and reading.

Memorization is the foundation of learning any new language. You must memorize the vocabulary, the rules of grammar, sentence structure, tenses, nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, and all of the other technical pieces. Taking a course can support your memorization efforts. You use all of these skills when you read and write in French. These are the four components that are the easiest to work on during individual study time, however, to perfect them you must put them into practical use which is where working with a skilled instructor can be an invaluable resource.

As part of a course, you have a regular opportunity to practice implementing your skills via listening to the instructor speaking fluent French, listening to other students speaking the language, and speaking the language yourself. By listening and speaking French on a regular basis, you will naturally be working on refining your pronunciation along with all of the technical skills associated with learning a new language.

Some additional topics you may work on as part of your studies include the feminine, masculine, singular, and plural nouns; definite and indefinite articles; passé composé; direct object pronouns; indefinite adjectives and pronouns; question words; modal verbs; and complex relative pronouns. You may even review French culture or history as part of your lessons.

Regardless of your level of fluency or where you are in your studies, finding the right French course can help you maximize your language acquisition efforts and target those skills you most need to review.

How is taking a Richmond French class going to help me learn the language?

There are several ways that taking a French class can support your efforts in learning the language. Classes provide a convenient learning environment lead by a professional teacher who can offer you the academic structure you need to work on building your skills and practicing your auditory comprehension and pronunciation. Additionally, you gain a supportive network of peers engaged in pursuing similar language goals.

Your class will be held in a convenient online learning environment. You won't have to worry about adding a commute onto either side of your class, which can dramatically reduce the time commitment associated with taking a class in person. The only things you need to attend your session are an electronic device on which to view and interact with your class and a reliable internet connection. Each of our classes is composed of individual sections. By utilizing a modular curriculum design, we can begin new sections each month, which means you don't have to wait for a new semester to dive in.

All of our teachers must go through an initial vetting process to ensure you work with someone who is not only fluent in French, but who is also an effective communicator. When teaching a class, an instructor must be able to communicate with a diverse student population at varying levels of language fluency.

The structure of the class is similar to what you would find in a traditional classroom setting. Your teacher will deliver instructional information to the entire group. They may then have students practice together or work on assignments designed to facilitate greater understanding of the topic being covered that day.

Working in a group provides many learning opportunities and advantages. As you practice with your classmates, you will have a chance to hone your listening and verbal communication skills. These are two of the skills that are most difficult to develop when working on your own. One of the most often underrated advantages to working within the context of a group is the motivational support that can be gained when you are surrounded by peers working towards a similar goal.
