Dear French language student,
Mastering French Conversation by Dr. Brians Languages is based on the highly acclaimed language learning program developed by the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) for US Government personnel in the 1940s. The training enabled professionals to live and work in a foreign country.
The FSI approach is straightforward: You learn how to speak French by speaking French.
The FSI-inspired Guided Imitation drills allow you to practice conversation. As the drills progress, you become able to formulate your own sentences. You are preparing for live conversations on the streets of Paris.
This program is mentally demanding: leaning any skill at an excellent level is like that. If you really want to master French conversation, this course is for you.
In this course, we will cover:
1) Possessive Adjectives
2) Indefinite Articles: du, de la, de l', des
3) French Numbers up to 100
4) Prepositions: chez, à
5) The verb 'aller'
For course details, please see our website.
We wish you the very best,
Scott & Dr. Annette Brians

Excellent for learning French numbers to 200
This unit stands out in how well the authors approach learning numbers up to 200. While this unit is an extension of units 1-3 with its inclusion of new verbs, vocabulary, and concepts, the authors excel at teaching French numbers up to 200. Using a variety of contexts, their sections are designed to not only teach you the numbers, but ensure that your pronunciation is concise. There are a few sections that have the learner repeat a sequence of numbers that have similar sounds, forcing the learner to be able to tell the difference between, for example, "douze (12), deux (2), and dix (10)" without thinking twice.
