Grammar Objectives – Independence (B1 level)

At the end of the course, you will master :

The global architecture of French & the sentences structures

During this course, we will take a lot of time studying the architecture of French grammar. We will build the great schema of French language to help you structure your French definitively.

The complements of the verbs & their pronominalization

You will study the possible complement of the verbs and how to replace them with pronouns. You will study the indirect object complement, the direct object complement, the circumstancial complement, and all the other types. Each one of these complements is related to a set of pronouns used to replace them to avoid repetition, to gain speed and elegancy.

The indicative mood (13 tenses)

At this stage, you normally master the present tense, the future simple, the compound past, the imperfect, the pluperfect, the conditional present.

We will review your knowledge of these tenses and complete it if necessary.

We will also add to the list the rest of the indicative tenses (anterior future, anterior past, simple past etc.) for you master the entire system of the indicative mood.

 

The conditional mood

The conditional mood is used to express the condition. You will learn and review all the different ways to express the condition using the conditional present, the conditional past, the pluperfect, the present and the future simple.

The active, passive and attributive forms of the verbs

Verbs can have three forms in French. The active form, the passive form and the attributive verbs. You will learn to use them and transform verbs from one to another.

The pronouns

Since in this course you will learn the diverse complements of the verbs and how to pronominalize them, you will therefore learn the sets of pronouns corresponding to these complements. Thanks to them, you will avoid repetition, gain in speed and elegancy.

The adverbs

Like the adjectives, the adverbs have a function of precision. They are used to precise the verbs, the adjectives and the adverbs themselves.

The determiners

You normally master the determiners at this stage.

However, if necessary, we will revise that the determiners are these little words that you put in front of the nouns (le, la, les, un, une, des, etc.). They take the gender and the number of the nouns and they help to identify and quantify the nouns.

The nouns

You normally master the nouns at this stage.

However, if necessary, we will revise that the nouns designate the things populating the world. In French, they have a gender and a number.

The adjectives

You normally master the adjectives at this stage.

However, if necessary, we will revise that the adjectives precise the quality of the things (the nouns) populating the world. They take the gender and the number of the nouns.

French pronunciation

If necessary, because you might never have studied it in depth, we will review the pronunciation of French language. At the end of the course, you will be able to recognize, distinguish and pronounce each sound of French language with precision.

What Gil’s students say

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to have studied French before taking this course?

Yes. To follow this course for Intermediate B1 level, you should master the basics of the A1 and A2 levels. At the beginning of the course, we will review your knowledge of these basics as well as your ability to have simple conversations in French. If necessary, we will revise the basics and consolidate them before moving on with the B1 level course.

Do I need to buy materials to take this course?

You don’t need to buy materials to take this course. I will provide the materials (books for intermediate, texts, etc.) for your learning of French language. However, I also encourage you to search for content in French that appeals to your personal taste and expose yourself to it in your daily life. This can be music in French, movies, documentaries, etc. Being proactive is key when learning a language.

How long is this course?

This course is generally 45 hours long. This number of hours is based on the average time my students took to complete the B1 level. But some students take less time to master this content. While some others take more time. It depends on many factors. Your investment at home and your consistency with the course will have a great impact on your learning.
