French 101+ Conversation for Beginners- ONLINE


LANGUAGES, LITERACY & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT / World Languages -
Winter/Spring 2022

For students who have taken beginning French, but don’t want to forget it over the summer months!

Conversations will focus on topics that are easy to discuss such as travel, recipes, descriptions, asking questions, short videos (for discussing likes and dislikes), and reading a chapter in an easy-reader of Arsène Lupin: Gentleman Cambrioleur (for fans of the Netflix series “Lupin”). No textbook is required, but if you wish to reference a text, Easy French: Step-by-Step (available on amazon https://www.amazon.com/French-Step-Step-Myrna-Roch...) is the recommended workbook that is followed during this class. Choice of topics can be flexible depending on interest and comfort level. 

This class will meet online. You will receive an email prior to the start date of your class with information on how to participate. 

Nikki Matheson

Nikki was raised in a bilingual household. Born in Canada, she grew up just outside of NYC, spending summers in northern Québec with her famille québecoise. She also studied French in the US and at the Université de Rouen, and has a Master’s Degree in Teaching French (MATSL). Shortly after college, her great love for music garnered her the invitation to tour with a French band for 6 months, after which she ended up living in Paris for 14 years, performing with major artists there. In addition to her musical work, she worked as a translation editor, lyric adapter, and still consults for TV, movies, and book adaptations of English works going into French (Really, how to you translate the term “Grey Gardens”).

She has taught students aged 3 to 73, including at the Middlebury-Language Academy, L’Alliance Française, and Norwich University, where she now works in academic support. She also taught French to the VT National Guard so they could deploy to Senegal, and even interpreted for Senegal’s President Sall when he came to meet with Gov. Shumlin in VT. She loves French and thinks you should too!
