French for Travel


French for Travel


French for Travel is a short 4-week course for beginners who intend to travel to a French-speaking country. You will learn how to handle everyday situations on your next trip to France or Quebec in Canada, through interactive lessons, practice sheets, audio practice and so much more. The course will emphasize common phrases and travel vocabulary, but will also cover many basics of the French language, and give you some insight into French customs and culture.

What exactly will you learn?

All the basic spoken French needed for a successful stay or holiday in a French-speaking country!

  • Introduce yourself and ask basic questions
  • Order food and beverages
  • Ask for directions
  • Ask for information about your accommodation
  • Schedules and means of transportation
  • Shopping
  • Dining out
  • Phrases needed in an emergency
  • Reporting an accident and other relevant phrases

This travel French course focuses less on the rules of grammar and more on the basics of what you need to know to make your vacation a memorable one and feel more confident in your next trip to a French speaking country.



The French classes starting in the Fall will take place every Sunday for 4 weeks, from 10:00AM – 3:00PM

There are no pre- and follow-up assignments, but instead you will have weekly homework. The entire course will give you 36 hours, 20 hours will be in-person, and 16 hours will consist of homework.

You will be invited to join Google Classroom 2 weeks before class starts, which is the platform we use for all our classes. Check your spam folder, as invitations to join Google Classroom sometimes end up there. Please make sure you register for the course with a valid email address, since this is where you will receive the invitation. Your email has to be Google compatible, so it’s best to use gmail, outlook, hotmail or yahoo. If you do not receive a notification to join Google Classroom, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to contact us.

It is NOT possible to receive your certificate early for our French class. This is a 4-week class and certificates will be awarded once class has officially concluded and all assignments have been successfully completed.



Attendance is mandatory for ALL MEETINGS! If you are late or leave early, you will not receive a course completion certificate.
