Some members have expressed their interest in learning French. Inspired by Faiza Foxy interactive Arabic class and encouraged by AshaDii, Mtambuzi, Azimio Jipya and other members, I said to my self: why not?
French shares some similarity with English in many regards but one of the main difference lies in the pronunciation. To overcome this challenge I encourage whoever is interested to register for free at Livemocha. It provides pictures and sounds for a complete lesson.
I will try to post two or three lessons per week and respond to some questions.
As much as I want this to be a fun and enjoyable experience, please let's stay focus and avoid our usual distractions. This is not Chit Chat.
The teaching language will be English and Swahili, but as time goes I will progressively switch to French so that new members will have to go through the old lessons first. We would not want them to ask questions that have already been addressed, would we?
There will be some didactic pictures as well, and a lot of links to Google translate.
I believe 100 lessons should be enough for a beginner's level, I will update the curriculum progressively
Lesson One to Ten:
- Introduction (A)
- Introduction (B)
- Numbers (A: Cardinal)
- Usual objects in the office
- Numbers (B: Ordinal)
- Family members and pets
- Verbs for "survivors"
- Parts of the body
- A French poem
- Recap of lesson One to Ten
I will link each lesson to its post so that members can jump to the lesson just by clicking it, as I believe there will be a lot of post in between lessons. For french chit chat, please visit the french playground
