"The musical sound of the French language tends to conjure certain images for English-speakers. Leisurely mornings of coffee and pastries in a cafe. The Bohemian life of an artist on the Left Bank of the Seine. The romance of Je t'aime. the understatement of Ca va. the inspiration of Liberte, Egalite, and Fraternite: French is a beautiful-and global-language, and one of the most rewarding you can study. Yet as with learning any new language, it can be a frustrating experience. While dozens if not hundreds of platforms promise to teach you in just a "few minutes a day," there's no getting around it: learning a new language is challenging, and it requires active participation. But with the right approach, it should also be a fun and incredibly rewarding endeavor. Learning French: A Rendezvous with French-Speaking Cultures includes what most platforms omit: context. In these 30 lively, step-by-step lectures, Professor Ann Williams of the Metropolitan State University of Denver gives you the core building blocks of the language while also offering crucial insight into the relationship between French and French-speaking cultures. This ingenious approach is perfect for adult language learners who are serious about enjoying and using the French language. To get you going from minute one in this course, Professor Williams takes a practical, step-by-step tour of grammatical theory and real-world usage. Filled with conversations and insider tips to give you insights about the nuances of the culture, this course makes acquiring-and, most important, using-French easier than you ever imagined. "
