Let’s have a closer look at a typical lesson with us. Here is a list of the various skills and linguistic elements on which you will be challenged :
Your objective will be to listen to an audio document, being able to summarize it, to answer our questions and use the different expressions that you know to put forward your point of view on a specific topic.
For conversational French, the topic can simply be inspired from your routine of the last few days, or to react to a press article or an online documentary. We will use easy sentences if you are beginners and the more advanced you are, the more you will be challenged to use a wider range of vocabulary, expressions, complex tenses
Using the correct grammatical structures and the appropriate tenses (present, past tenses, immediate future..) are essential. For the more advanced students, we will only work on remedial grammar. French grammar contains many exceptions that you will have to master. You will also be challenged on the use of prepositions, pronouns..
250 words constitute the essential core of a language, those without which you cannot construct any sentence. 750 words represent those which are used on a daily basis by every person who speaks the language. With us you will work on a wide range of vocabulary ranging from daily life, leisure, to expressing emotions.
Being able to pronounce the French R, U, the nasal vowels, the accent, the silent letters, the liaisons and linking are key points for a correct pronounciation. As speaking first means being understood, we will work on it right from the first lesson.
