I found it very beneficial to receive instruction and coaching on how to make vowel/consonant sounds that are difficult for non-native french speakers to hear and pronounce. I also appreciated having someone listen to me and give me direct feedback on my french pronunciation.
For the last two years, I have taken one course each session at AFT, "Parlons Chansons". My goal there is to maintain some French speaking and listening each week, and to enjoy myself while doing it. The course with Dominique definitely meets each of my goals.
This course is designed for students who wish to acquire a French terminology in business and commerce and for professionals who need to use French for communication purposes within their company.
Learn how to use French for professional communication purposes;
Compare socio-economic issues in France and Canada;
Improve grammar skills;
Increase or gain knowledge of French in the fields of economics and commerce.
This course is in three parts (which can be taken in any order), with two different themes each:
Part I: Key economic players/Entrepreneurs

Note that this course is a valuable preparation for the DFA1 (Diplôme de Français des Affaires 1) and DFA2 (Diplôme de Français des Affaires 2), both of which are offered by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
