A1 - B2 LEVELS: 100 Common French Expressions
This mini-course on common French expressions is a great way to spice up your conversations, increase your vocabulary, and sound more French. The grammar is varied, so this resource is fine for all levels. The idea is to not worry about WHY things are said this way in French, but instead just accept it and memorize these 100 short expressions, interjections, and sentence starters. Check out the preview video!
All of the words and expressions are spoken slowly, and you're given time to repeat them aloud. English translations are included for all of the sentences on the video recording. You'll notice that the English versions are almost never direct translations, which is interesting to note! An audio recording is included so you can practice almost anywhere (even in the car)!
This resource is included in my FRENCH PROGRAM FOR SELF-LEARNERS, and once you own the program, you'll have access to all of LLL's current and future French learning resources at no additional cost!
- Video recording with all 100 expressions written in French and English - 18 minutes
- Audio recording for listening comprehension and pronunciation practice - 18 minutes
- Set of 100 practice cards to print, cut out, and use over and over again
How to use your set of practice cards:
Print and cut out your set of 100 cards, and hook them together with a ring. Expressions are written in French at the top, and in English at the bottom. As you practice and master these expressions by using the video and audio recordings, test yourself frequently with your stack of cards. When you feel confident with a word or expression, take a pair of scissors and CUT OFF THE ENGLISH translation on the dotted line. You'll eventually have a handy set of French only cards to pull out any time you'd like to review.
