Madame Amy Phillips » Professeur de Français

Professeur de Français

Bonjour et bienvenue à la classe de Français

Je m’appelle Madame Phillips and I will be your guide as we discover le français et la culture de la France et le monde francophone.  By learning French you are connecting to a community of over 275 million people in 54 countries across the world on 6 different continents.  Studying French will broaden your horizons personally, academically, and professionally.  Throughout the course, you will see how French can open doors for you, provide you with opportunities for enrichment, and allow you to connect with people from all over the world, beginning with our classroom exchange with our sister school in Paris!  Did you know that studying French enhances critical thinking and problem solving skills while stimulating brain function and memory?  Or that one out of three words in English has been borrowed from French; students studying French show improved scores on comprehension of reading texts and vocabulary on standardized tests such as SAT, ACT, GRE, and LSAT.  In French class, we explore the culture of the French-speaking world  while learning the language.  We celebrate Mardi Gras and make masks, we cook and eat French cuisine, we listen to French music, and watch French films.   We play games, and we always have fun and laugh!  What are you waiting for?  Allons-y!
