Comprehensive French V includes 30 additional lessons (16 hrs.), plus Readings, which build upon the language skills acquired in Levels II and III and IV. Increased spoken and reading language ability.

Level IV will increase your vocabulary and grammatical structures and triple your spoken proficiency. Upon completion of a level V, you will be able to:

* participate in most informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and some semi-professional topics,
* form longer sentences while maintaining the target language syntax,
* be understood even by native speakers unused to dealing with foreigners,
* handle increasingly difficult grammatical structures,
* enjoy fluent conversations with a variety of strangers,
* have a near-native accent, and the subtleties of the language will be apparent in your speech,
* read at the same level at which you speak.

Note: In order for the Pimsleur Method to work correctly, you must first complete the Level I + II + III + IV language programs before proceeding to the Level V language program.

 

About the French Language

French is a Romance language originally spoken in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Switzerland, and today by about 350 million people around the world as either a native or a second language, with significant populations in 54 countries.

French is a descendant of the Latin of the Roman Empire, as are languages such as Spanish, Italian, Catalan, Romanian, and Portuguese. Its development was also influenced by the native Celtic languages of Roman Gaul and by the Germanic language of the post-Roman Frankish invaders.

It is an official language in 31 countries, most of which form what is called in French La Francophonie, the community of French-speaking nations. It is an official language of all United Nations agencies and a large number of international organisations.

Per the Constitution of France, French has been the official language since 1992 (although previous legal texts have made it official since 1539, see ordinance of Villers-Cotterêts). France mandates the use of French in official government publications, public education outside of specific cases (though these dispositions are often ignored) and legal contracts; advertisements must bear a translation of foreign words.

In addition to French, there are also a variety of regional languages. France has signed the European Charter for Regional Languages but has not ratified it since that would go against the 1958 Constitution.

The majority of French words derive from Vulgar Latin or were constructed from Latin or Greek roots. There are often pairs of words, one form being popular (noun) and the other one savant (adjective), both originating from Latin. Example:

* brother: frère / fraternel < from Latin FRATER
* finger: doigt / digital < from Latin DIGITVS
* faith: foi / fidèle < from Latin FIDES
* cold: froid / frigide < from Latin FRIGIDVS
* eye: œil / oculaire < from Latin OCVLVS
* inhabitants of the city Saint-Étienne are called Stéphanois

The last example, Saint-Étienne/Stéphanois, illustrates common practice for gentilics throughout France.

In some examples there is a common word from "vulgar" Latin and a more savant word from classical Latin or even Greek.

* Cheval—Concours équestre—Hippodrome

The French words which have developed from Latin are usually less recognisable than Italian words of Latin origin because as French developed into a separate language from Vulgar Latin, the unstressed final syllable of many words was dropped or elided into the following word.

The French counting system is partially vigesimal: twenty (vingt) is used as a base number in the names of numbers from 80–99. The French word for eighty, for example, is quatre-vingts, which literally means "four twenties", and soixante-quinze (literally "sixty-fifteen") indicating 75. This reform arose after the French Revolution to unify the different counting system (mostly vigesimal near the coast, due to Celtic [via Basque] and Viking influence). This system is comparable to the archaic English use of score, as in "fourscore and seven" (87), or "threescore and ten" (70).

Belgian French and Swiss French are different in this respect. In Belgium and Switzerland 70 and 90 are septante and nonante. In Switzerland, depending on the local dialect, 80 can be quatre-vingts (Geneva, Neuchâtel, Jura) or huitante (Vaud, Valais, Fribourg). Octante had been used in Switzerland in the past, but is now considered archaic. In Belgium, however, quatre-vingts is universally used.

 


The Pimsleur Language Learning System  is an sounds speech skill process developed by Dr Pimsleur that emphasizes dynamic participation over rote memorization. In the course of modules, the audience will repeat words and phrases spoken by indigenous speakers and produces new words by inference. As new text are presented, the audience is motivated to retrieve slightly older phrases. The prompts for any supplied keyword are over time spaced out in ever-increasing time periods. Somewhere between Nineteen Sixty Three and Nineteen Seventy One, Dr Paul Pimsleur created Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Twi instructional classes while teaching at the University of California, Los Angeles. The Pimsleur lanuage learning system stresses on competency in speaking, in addition as proficiency in reading. These pair of attributes are perfected throughout 30-minute tutorials, which are carried out until a score of a minimum of eighty% awareness is achieved before moving forward to the the following session. Inside the course of the tutorials, people listen closely to indigenous people of the target spoken language as they communicate sentences in both the foreign language, coupled with the student’s number one language. At calibrated intervals, students are persuaded to duplicate a word or phrase just after paying attention to the lecturer. As the pupil advances through the programme, the period increases, as does the magnitude of the vocabulary. The classes are made up of thirty-minute every day lessons and short reviewing lessons
