Speaking French on your gîte holiday? Of course you can!

by French Gite on January 25, 2010

Learn to speak FrenchFor many of us the last time French phrases passed our lips was back in the classroom, reciting the mnemonic ‘Dr. Mrs. Van Der Tramp’ (because it contains the first letter to each of the verbs which conjugate with être – now it’s all coming back!) or maybe a cheeky ‘Une bière, s’il vous plaît!’ here and there, but for those who would like to impress with more than pigeon French, the BBC are offering online language courses for free!

The courses provide an ideal opportunity for people visiting France on holiday to reacquaint themselves or learn French at their own pace with the help of Stéphane Cornicard and 24 interactive video units. The films were shot around Lyons, the Alps and in Provence and you can keep track of your progress through the course by joining the BBC membership scheme.

Units include topics such as Directions, Languages, Adventure Sports, Wine talk, Eating out, Booking a gîte, Walks, Holidays and even Buying a house in France.
