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.
