Neuf vs Nouveau

Neuf vs nouveau
The French adjectives neuf and nouveau can be tricky for French students because they are both equivalent to "new" but are not interchangeable. Here's a new look at these timeless French foes.

Passé composé vs Imparfait

Passé composé vs imparfait
When talking about the past in French, there are two different tenses that work together: the passé composé and the imparfait. Although English has verb forms that appear to be exact equivalents for each of these, they don't quite match up in the two languages. This video will help you understand when, why, and how to use each French tense.

Online Learning and Teaching

Teaching French online
Learning and teaching online is more popular than ever - even if this trend isn't totally by choice. French students have a wide range of resources to choose from, while teachers can benefit from specialized tools to help them assign and grade homework, track students' progress, assess classes, and more. Here are my favorite online learning sites that offer dedicated tools and spaces for teachers.
