How does it work?
The Coffee Break French Masterclass has been designed in response to the needs of intermediate learners in our community. With our regular, friendly lessons which fit your lifestyle we'll help you build your knowledge and develop your range of expression with the Coffee Break French Masterclass.
The course is structured in six modules, each module lasting one month. Over the course of the month we'll make available lessons and activities to help you plan your learning and build on what you've learned previously. If you can spend just 20 minutes on your learning three or four times a week, the Masterclass is perfect for you.
You'll be following the course with a group of learners from around the world, and we'll be with you every step of the way. Take the audio lessons on the Coffee Break Academy, and then complete the activities in our private Facebook group. Best of all, we're delighted to be able to guarantee feedback from our team of native speakers and experienced teachers.
Course outline - Masterclass Season 1
Learn about some of the trickiest verbs in the French language. Do you know the difference between savoir and connaître? What about amener and emmener? And can you use faire in all its senses and situations, including the tricky faire faire construction?
How is your relationship with pronouns? Can you comfortably use direct and indirect object pronouns? Do you know when to use y and en? Do you despair with disjunctives? This module will help you build your confidence with French pronouns.
Sometimes words in French look like words in English – and that’s when you need to be more careful! Words don’t always mean what they look like they mean. In this module on “false friends” you’ll encounter a series of words and expressions which often trick learners, and you’ll learn exactly what they mean, and how to say what you think they mean!
Get on top of five of the most common tenses in French and know exactly when to use which one, how to conjugate regular and irregular verbs in each tense, and master the perfect, imperfect, future, conditional and pluperfect completely!
In this module you'll be introduced to what learners often find to be one of the most tricky aspects of French: the subjunctive. You'll learn to recognise triggers, to form the subjunctive and use it in your own speaking and writing.
The final module of our first season of the Coffee Break French Masterclass will help you to sound more French, using filler words, changing your questions and word order and lots more to help you sound more like a native speaker.
