Misty Valley Books in Chester will again offer two levels of French classes beginning the week of April 12, 2010.
The Learn French courses will run for six weeks, Level II on Mondays, beginning April 12, and Level I on Tuesdays, beginning April 13. Both courses are open to students high school age and older and will meet in the bookstore from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Instructor for the courses is Bill Reed, co-proprietor with his wife, Lynne, of Misty Valley Books, on the Chester Green next to the Fullerton Inn. A graduate of Yale University, he has taught in Africa, France and, for more than 35 years, in public and private schools and colleges in Vermont.
Both courses will rely on films, games and songs in an approach that is lighthearted and conversational. Over 200 students in small groups (class size is limited) have taken the courses in the past two years. A current student had this to say: "The courses are excellent - lively format, great pace, fun and interesting ...This course is something I look forward to every week. Such interesting people in each class."
The fee for the course is $95 for the six sessions and includes materials. Register by calling 875-3400 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
