Class Description:

Do you know how to speak French, but cannot master pronunciation? Then this class is for you!  Learn how to speak French with confidence with French phonetics.

In this class we will learn phonetics by reading French love poetry from the XVIth to the XXth century, including:

XVIth century Ronsard’s

Mignone, allons voir si la rose
Qui ce matin avait déclose
Sa robe de poupre au soleil,

Or, XVIIth century Saint-Amant’s

Zéphire a bien raison d’être amoureux de Flore;
C’est le plus bel objet dont il puisse jouir;

Or, XXth century Eluard’s,

Elle est debout sur mes paupière
Et ses cheveux sont dans les miens,
Elle a la forme de mes mains,
Elle a la couleur de mes yeux,

and this exquisite one,

La courbe de tes yeux fait le tour de mon coeur,
Un rond de danse et de douceur

Join Professor Isaac Cohen as he begins his twentieth year teaching Phonetics and discover how to speak like a native French while enjoying the versification of poetry.

French level: Intermediate and Advanced.
