French as a Second Language
(Beginner to Intermediate)
Hit the Books CONSTANTLY!
“All of life is a constant education.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Hit the Books offers Second-Language French tutoring and group classes, taught by a native French speaker with extensive tutoring experience and a strong academic background. Learning a new language can be a challenge! From pronunciation to grammar, each language has its own set of rules and conventions—not to mention vocabulary and style. At the same time, language learning is a very rewarding experience. Knowing two or more languages will open a number of doors for you in the professional and academic worlds.
Benefits of our Intensive Language Classes:
• Interactive Classes with a syllabus tailored to your level!
• The Chance to Advance—pass the end-of-term exam and receive a certificate allowing you to move up a level!
• Games and Activities: Enjoy French songs, videos, and skits!
• Integrated Conversation Practice: Practice what you learned!
• Boost your French conversation skills, vocabulary and comprehension!
Features of our Language Classes:
• A free placement test with no commitment to a Study Package
• A range of Study Packages: Customize your sessions and enjoy the discounts!
• A0 (Beginner), A1-A2 (Upper Beginner), and B1 (Intermediate) levels
• Optional final exams to qualify for a level upgrade and certificate
