Alors, vous parlez français ? Whether it's been a few years or a few decades since your last French class, there's a good chance you'll fall into the Intermediate category. Many people stay at this level for a long time, and there's a spectrum: Advanced Beginner/Low Intermediate, Mid-Intermediate, Advanced Intermediate. This level is all about getting comfortable using regular and common irregular verbs in present, past and future tenses, and drawing on a bank of common everyday vocabulary. French With Amey offers language classes, cultural/conversational classes, soirées and immersion events to give you opportunities to develop your skills within the Intermediate level. Classes are open to any age, and can be a supplement to another class,  a way to refresh before traveling to France, or simply a way to keep your brain active! Amey divides the Intermediate category into three levels: LOW INTERMEDIATE Getting more comfortable recalling vocabulary as required by context. Sentences becoming more fluid, using different tenses and grammatical structures. Need consistent practice to retain and comprehend structures. MID-INTERMEDIATE Able to use more complicated structures, though sometimes everything gets jumbled up and there are big pauses. Working to expand vocabulary. HIGH INTERMEDIATE  Has been introduced to a lot of tenses and vocabulary, but needs practice to develop fluidity speaking and writing. Test yourself!  Try to answer the following questions, both aloud and on paper. You can check back every few months to see if the questions get easier for you as you get more comfortable with structures and vocabulary.

Each session focuses on a different aspect of French culture, with a combination of activities to review and practice  common but difficult vocabulary and grammar. The goal for all participants is to communicate entirely in French (limited English for a difficult grammatical structure or vocab word). Levels are described below: Advanced Beginner conversation focuses on building sentences correctly (tenses, pronoun placement, verb conjugation), with the additional of a cultural focus each session for a reading or one activity.  Much of the class is conducted in French, with only a few words in English to explain a concept Intermediate conversation focuses on a combination of content and structures. The goal is to use correct grammatical structures (tenses, pronouns, verb conjugations) while discussing a variety of topics. Almost all of the class is conducted in French. Advanced Intermediate conversation is an opportunity to speak in French with a small group of people who still need some practice understanding and using difficult grammar concepts. Emphasis putting together long thoughts with fluency. The class is conducted in French.
