Level B2 - French Master Class - FAIRE
6 different verbs that mean "to make" in French
Once you've moved beyond the beginner stage and into the intermediate and upper intermediate levels, you realise that the verb FAIRE is used in so many different ways. You've certainly learned tons of expressions using FAIRE, and many of them are not easily translated to English.
This mini-course is NOT to teach you how to use the verb FAIRE, but rather to teach you (as an English speaker) all of the different ways to say MAKE in French. A section is included to help you review the FAIRE CAUSATIVE, and as a bonus I've included an exercise which will also help you to review relative pronouns. This course is for intermediate to upper intermediate level learners.
This lesson is included in my BUNDLED FRENCH LESSONS.
