About This Course

Who this course is for:

  • You want to explore the French language a little more deeply
  • You are interested in starting to learn about the next structure of the French language and how to manipulate it
  • You enjoy the 3 minute methodology used in other 3 Minute French courses
  • You enjoyed learning about the first seven structures and would like to learn about the next structure in French

What you’ll learn: 

  • Learn about the eighth structure in the French language
  • Get to grips with how easy it is to manipulate this structure and say what you want with it
  • Get plenty of opportunity to practise using this structure
  • Learn about the useful combination of words “y aller”
  • Learn about the very useful polite command word “veuillez”
  • Complete lessons in 3 minute chunks – perfect for the busy learner
  • Build your own sentences without memorisation
  • Get more familiar with the imperative in French
  • Speak from the very first lesson


  • Ideally, you should be a little familiar already with the French language, but if you’re not, panic not! Everything in this course is fully explained, so you won’t get lost
  • I recommend you start by enrolling on the “Building Structures In French – Structures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7” courses

The whole of the French language can be broken down into several different structures. If you take any sentence from any French book or any utterance, you will see that it fits into one of these structures.

I remember one weekend, I was writing some lessons for the week ahead, when I suddenly realised this. I noticed that there are a certain number of structures in French, and that every sentence follows one of these structures. I spent the rest of the weekend working out all the structures, and I wrote them all down.

Every structure you learn gives you the ability to say a huge amount. Some structures are used more than others, but all the structures together make up the whole French language. Once you’ve learnt how a structure works, all you have to do is insert different words into the slots and you have a sentence.

This course introduces you to Structure 8. I’ve limited each course to one structure so as not to overburden you. By looking at just one structure at a time, you can really get to grips with it and understand its usage. It will help to clarify the French language and make it more like a reflex rather than something you have to think about as if it were a maths equation.

Each structure can also help to propel you to fluency; if you can manipulate the structures at high speed, you can start to say anything you want without having to think about how to say it.

This course contains plenty of practice opportunities for you to revise what you’ve learnt and it also contains some hints and tips on how best to learn and memorise the structures and the vocabulary that goes with them. You’ll learn how to make questions out of structure 8, how to make statements and how to turn positive statements negative.

The Building Structures in French series is set out using the same learning techniques as the 3 Minute French courses. You can work through the course in three minute chunks, enabling anybody to learn French, no matter how little time you have.

Our Promise to You

By the end of this course, you will have learned how to build your sentences without memorisation.
