You're Débutant, if...

You just took our Intro to French course. Or, you took high school French… but don’t remember much.

You can say “Je m’appelle…”, but that’s about it!

You have no idea when to use le, la, or li (oh wait, we made that last one up).

You’ve spent some time in a French-speaking country but never managed to pick up more than a couple of words.

Or maybe you live or work with a French speaker, and you’re dying to know what they’re saying!
