|Self-Study French Courses
French is an interactive program based on a virtual one-on-one tutoring.
The program has been developed by a group of Harvard and
Cornell graduates who are passionate language learners and who felt there had to be a
better way to learn a language. The result of their work is ideal for those who seek
common sense explanations, sophisticated workouts that lead to real learning, and who
thrive on a great teacher to keep them focused and engaged.
On-screen tutor Sonia Gil, a Cornell graduate, guides you throughout the
program, blending full motion video explanations in English with a series of highly
engaging workouts, helping you to understand and speak French. The Fluenz system follows
three clear principles: 1) We learn best when we have a teacher. It's often
difficult to motivate yourself to learn on your own. By bringing a tutor to the
computer, all concepts are explained in a sensible way and you don't have to tackle
French all by yourself. 2) If you are an English speaker, it's easier and faster to
learn French by starting out in English. With Fluenz, every new word and grammar structure
is explained in English, from a perspective that will make the most sense to English
speakers who are learning French. 3) It's best to learn the most relevant words in
French right away. Fluenz focuses on the vocabulary needed to learn the
language in order to use it in practical, real-world travel and business situations.
