This is an upper beginner level French listening comprehension course. Ten lessons are included for a total of 2.5 + hours of video instruction. Each comprehensive lesson includes French grammar unique to the A1 level (see grammar specifics below).

This lesson is included in my BUNDLED FRENCH LESSONS.

This is the French course for you if you have studied most of the grammar on the list below and you need to practice putting it all together. Maybe you have some knowledge of French grammar, but you have difficulty creating solid sentences. In this course you will learn a lot about all of those "extra" words that pop up everywhere in French.

Each lesson covers a different theme, but the grammar used is repeated in different contexts lesson to lesson all the while adding new elements from the list.

In each lesson:

- Jennifer does a first reading of the text on video

- Jennifer asks 5 comprehension questions and you begin to answer

- Jennifer does a second reading of the text on video

- Jennifer shows you the 5 comprehension questions in written form and you finish answering

- Jennifer goes over all 5 questions and answers with you

- Jennifer leads you through a comprehensive grammatical analysis of the text

Each video lesson lasts approximately fifteen minutes. PDFs of the texts in French with English translations as well as the 5 listening comprehension questions are provided for you to print out and perhaps take notes on as you take each lesson.
