We offer various levels of French classes:
This is our most basic level and is designed for those you who have shopkeepers start conversations in French and then quickly change to English when they realize you are going to continue holding the bottle of juice and staring intently at them until they do so. Then they will never get paid and it will turn into some sort of crazy staring contest. One you will ultimately lose due to dehydration. See there are many benefits to learning French!
You understand some of the words in advertisements, and sometimes if you point enough you can order your own meal in a French restaurant but often you get your steak well-done instead of the medium you desired. You likely have taken a beginner level class at another school or some years ago in high school.
You can read some of your news in French and you often understand much of the conversation but are hesitant to jump in fully. Restaurants menus and ordering tickets online from French vendors rarely pose any problem at all for you but if you have to change your order or upgrade your Madonna tickets to VIP you might switch to English. You have passed level 2 or have taken a recent advanced level class with another institution.
