Conversation

Develop your fluency
& your spontaneity


What to expect

Lessons are suitable for adults from 18 years old who can express themselves fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions.

If you have an advanced level, the lessons can help you to improve your speaking, to gain confidence and to further your knowledge of the language. During the first lesson we will speak in French about different things and I will also ask you some questions to make sure that you can use all the main tenses and moods. After that we will have a quick chat about your level and how we can improve your French. The following lessons will be a mixture between what we will have agreed to improve and conversation. In order to develop your knowledge, we will talk about different topics depending on your needs and goals. The topics can be anything you have an interest in. While you are talking I will make a written record of language used and correct your pronunciation. At the end of the lesson, we will review any mistakes made and I will send you my notes so you can learn the new vocabulary for an informal test at the beginning of the next lesson. We can also work from newspaper articles if you prefer and discuss the topic. This is a good way to improve reading skills and to learn new words related to specific topics. We can also talk about the advanced topics listed in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) for the level C, which describes foreign language proficiency.

Testimonials

“I was looking to have one-to-one lessons with a native French speaker, mainly to improve my spoken French. I had previously studied French to degree level and I had lived and worked in France. However, since leaving France many years ago, I had lost all confidence in speaking French. I like the lessons with Anaïs because we speak French 100% of the time. I find that I make more progress in the lessons because they are tailored to my needs. Anaïs makes notes during the lesson correcting my mistakes and at the end I have a list of new words and phrases for me to learn. What is also important for me is that Anaïs is always cheerful and friendly which makes the lessons very enjoyable and an hour with Anaïs just flies by. It really is a pleasure to have lessons with her.”
