Le dîner de Stéphane - A French lesson on using pronouns in context
This is a three part French lesson for intermediate to upper-intermediate level learners that will assess three different skills: listening, reading, and choosing grammatically correct pronouns. It is a good idea to wait and check your answers once all three steps of this lesson have been completed. Once the lesson has been completed, you may want to go back and change some of your answers before checking them against the answer key. Too often it is difficult to find a comprehensive course on pronouns in the form of a story. This course is not just an exercise with a certain number of non-related sentences to complete with pronouns. This course will challenge you to pay close attention to context so that you'll know why certain pronouns are being used.
This text is written in the present, futur proche, and passé composé tenses with an occasional conditional (voudrait, aimerait) and an occasional futur simple (sera, seront). The pronouns used in this text are as follows: LE - LA - LES - LUI - LEUR - Y - EN - ME - TE - SE - NOUS - VOUS - MOI - TOI - ELLE - EUX
Each section contains downloadable PDFs and the audio recording is a downloadable MP3. If you don't want to print, you can just view online and write your answers on a separate sheet of paper. This course does NOT include a self-correcting online quiz. Answer keys are included, but you will need to check your own work.
Step 1: Listening comprehension
Step 2: Reading comprehension
Step 3: Pronouns exercise

Bonjour! I'm Jennifer, and I’m an American French teacher living in the South of France. My native language is English, and I speak French fluently. I love to travel, and have led guided tours in 15 countries in Western Europe with my former students from the United States. I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and French, then taught French for a year and moved to France for a year before pursuing and earning a Master of Arts degree in French. I taught French at Saint Louis University High School, a Jesuit college preparatory school for young men, for 14 years. In the summer of 2013 I relocated to France with my family, and spent the summer working as Dean of l’Académie de France in Montpellier, a French immersion program for teenagers from around the world. A while before relocating to France, I began teaching French online via Skype. I am now teaching French online full time and I also give immersion classes and guided city visits in both languages in Béziers, France.
It’s my job to guide you and help you along on your journey to learn French. Learning should be fun, and I will make sure that enjoy yourself as you improve your listening, writing, reading, and most importantly your speaking skills. Over the years I have developed many creative strategies to guarantee your progress. All students have different learning styles, different strengths and weaknesses, and different levels. One of my first jobs as your teacher is to provide you with an approach that will suit your learning style so that you will get the most out of your classes as possible.
