The ideal course if you need to make phone calls in French. It will teach you how to make and receive calls to anyone in any setting, formal or informal, in under 90 minutes!
In this 3-part short video course, you will learn how to:
Call someone at home Call a company Call the doctor and the emergency services
I will teach you the relevant vocabulary and sentences, as well as give you example dialogues to listen to, with transcripts and translations.
PDFs with the relevant vocabulary and transcripts are also available for each video.
At the end of the course you will be able to have a short conversation on the phone.
This is more suited to intermediate or advanced learners, but beginners can also learn a lot of simple phrases to use.
I think the videos are very good, professional, and comprehensive - they cover every eventuality on the telephone. They are rich in vocabulary (and important facts like the numbers for the emergency services) so there's plenty of new words to learn.
I particularly like the fact that you read the dialogues first (so we can practice listening skills) then see the dialogue in French (reading skills) and then finally in English. Also you repeat the dialogue in French so it's good for perfecting pronunciation too.
The sentences are very natural everyday French and there are some interesting words and phrases that you explain as you go along such as 'elle est clouée au lit'." J.H.
