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. Mastering French Conversation allows the complete beginner to do exactly that.
The FSI-inspired Guided Imitation drills provide staged conversations. These staged conversations are performed exclusively in French. You hear statements and questions in French, understand them, and then formulate a response in French. In this way, you learn to think in French. You are preparing for live conversations on the streets of Paris.
Mastering French Conversation is an updated version of the original FSI course. The drills have been completely modernized, rewritten, and re-recorded.
This program is likely the most intensive and demanding audio self-help program available. If you really want to master French conversation, this course is for you.
In this course, we will cover: 1) Definite Articles: le, la, l' 2) Subject Pronouns: je, tu, elle, il, on, nous, vous, elles, ils 3) Question Forms: est-ce que, intonation and inversion 4) The verb 'être'

We wish you the very best,
Scott & Dr. Annette Brians
