French (Français) is a Romance language spoken in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada (principally Quebec), northern New England (especially the state of Vermont), the state of Louisiana and in many other countries and regions formerly or currently governed by France. It is an official language of more than 25 countries. French is spoken as a mother language by 72,000,000 people and as a second language by some other 52,000,000. It is one of the five official languages of the United Nations.
France is 2000 years old. Did you know that Paris is the most frequently visited city in the whole world? If you have never been to Paris, seeing it is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself! Each time I arrive in Paris, I have a taxi drive me around to my favorite places. I begin at the Champs Elysees from the Arc de Triomphe to the Obelisque, on to le Louvre, the Marais, Ile St. Louis, cross the Seine to the Quartier Latin, on to the Tour Eiffel and back to “les Champs” again. This takes about 30-45 minutes.
I sit back and let myself enjoy the sights and each time I feel like I am in a fairy land, a never-never land so unique from any other city in our planet!
I am transfixed and transported by the continuous beauty of this city. Since Baron Haussmann, planner of the grands boulevards, the much-lauded gardens and the architecture of modern Paris, redesigned it, the breathtaking beauty of Paris has attracted millions upon millions of visitors.
People travel to Paris for diverse reasons: to see the beauty of the City of Light, delight in the cuisine, enjoy the fashion, experience being part of history or to practice their French.
FULFILLING A DREAM:
For centuries, French was the language of diplomacy throughout the civilized world, the forerunner to English as a global language. Even today French is widely spoken in many countries. If you speak English and French, you can travel almos anywhere.
The French language and its pronunciation have changed over the centuries.
By the 19th century, the modern French pronunciation of today was adopted.
“Parisian” French is still considered the most elegant and desired accent to acquire. At Super-Learners, you will be speaking Parisian French to the delight of all French people!
At Super-Learnersyou will experience holistic learningwhich is not available in other language schools:
1) We take time help you acquire a native-like pronunciation.
2) Your learning aids (the Super-Learners Manual and CDs),
were developed to give you a true HOLISTIC learning experience.
Getting you fluent, then bilingual, is the our goal. Fluency comes from hearing the language (CDs) , thinking in it (CDs and class) and then speaking it (class conversations).
At Super-Learnerswe do things differently from other schools! Languages in high school, college and other private language schools are still being taught with the same old, conventional, ineffective methodology: nonstop grammar explanations, writing, translating, memorizing short dialogues and having to “learn” 5 to 6 verb tenses when you can’t even speak basic Spanish/French etc. in the present tense! This is called rote memory or Left-brain information. Only by learning a language on the RIGHT, creative side of the brain will you become truly fluent in your new language.
Los Angeles, it is the ideal place to learn French, Spanish or Italian
because it has become a melting pot of many cultures.
