At the intermediate level and in a classroom setting, discussions often involve reporting what you have seen, heard, read. This way of reporting, retelling, representing requires using what we call “le discours rapporté” (discours indirect ou indirect libre). This type of reformulation entails using tenses, pronouns, prepositions, conjunctions not necessarily in the original text or speech which tends to give you pause, hesitation, struggles or simply quite a workout.

This course offers a thorough review of all aspects of sentence structure involved in “discours rapporté,” from tenses to possessive pronouns or conjunctions. In addition to grammar review, we will spend ample time practicing through conversation activities.

The course is of course taught entirely in French.

Petit exemple de discours rapporté lors d’une conversation:
Mon père : « Mon bureau sera fermé demain pour réparations. Il faudra que je travaille à la maison.»
Ma mère (un peu dure d’oreille) : « Qu’est-ce qu’il a dit ? »
Moi, répondant à ma mère : « Il a dit que son bureau serait fermé demain et qu’il lui faudrait travailler à la maison. »

If you need assistance to determine if this class is right for you, we would be happy to help.
