Studying French Verbs: Le Futur Antérieur
If you've studied French verbs for a while, you probably know about le présent, le passé composé, l'imparfait, et le futur. You may also know something about reflexive verbs and verbs of motion, and their particularities in the passé composé. You may even be familiar with le passé simple. What happens, though, when you want to describe an action that hasn't happened yet, but that will be complete before a particular action or time in the future? In English, we use the future perfect tense

French in Saint Louis

There’s a part of the USA that has always felt more French than American, and even today, it feels as if you’re entering a different world. As early as the end of the 17th century, the La Louisiane region was a thriving European settlement, and although it briefly passed into Spanish control towards the end of the 18th century, the area still retained its uniquely French flavor.

It’s no surprise then, that with such a rich European history, Saint Louis still retains its position as a major center of Roman Catholicism and is home to a prominent artistic community - famous not only for jazz, but also boasting America’s second-oldest orchestra.

Whether you’re a historian or a would-be traveler, there’s only one way to really immerse yourself in the culture of a place with a different language, and that’s to learn to speak it for yourself. The idea of seeking out French lessons in Saint Louis may make you feel nervous, but finding the right instructor to cater to your learning style will ensure that you get the most out of your lessons.

If you already have a moderate level of proficiency, you might benefit from some one-to-one spoken French sessions with a native speaker. To supplement these private French lessons in Saint Louis, try a group setting as a fun way of learning basic conversational vocabulary and putting it to immediate use in the right context. Institutions such as the The Alliance Française de Saint Louis (http://alliancestl.org/) ensure that you will get access to the very best tuition and facilities, including a library, cultural events, and the opportunity to take age and ability-appropriate exams for the more advanced speaker.

There are more ways to bring a language to life than just speaking it, and the rich history of Saint Louis is the perfect place to start as an accompaniment to your study of the French language. Local libraries and museums are great starting places to attend regular French-themed exhibitions and events. The pinnacle of these has to be the Mardi Gras celebration, running from mid-February until early March, with music and the famous nighttime street parade.

Whether your French lessons in Saint Louis inspire you to explore your language skills in Europe, or to apply them closer to home, learning a language is a social and fun way to bring rich layers to other interests, and make the history and culture of a region come to life.
