This French class is suitable for people who already have a substantial vocabulary and a good grasp of French grammar. It focuses on improving fluency and facilitating conversation in French through stimulating and rewarding games and exercises.
It also tackles common grammar mistakes/problems through play, which alleviates the sense of repetitive boredom that could stem from studying grammar more formally and renders it much more appealing and almost effortless.
Classes are kept small in terms of size, as there is a maximum of 8 people per group. This ensures that everyone can participate in the course of the lesson and that no one can “hide”. It also helps create a friendly atmosphere, which is very conducive to learning.
Availability of the Advanced French conversation classes:
- Day: Tuesdays, 10-11.30am
- Evening: Mondays, 7-8.30pm — Tuesdays, 8-9.30pm
Through the use of board games, the group shall improve on specific aspects of grammar that students find tricky at this level.
- Past tense revision (perfect, imperfect and pluperfect)
- Relative clauses
Using a French magazine, the group will focus every week on specific articles chosen by the students. This will introduce new vocabulary and more complex sentence structures, and help focus conversation on specific themes that are of interest to everyone in the group.
Vocabulary & knowledge
Every week, students receive a short list of words and structures studied in the course of the previous week. The group’s teacher starts each lesson by going over that new French vocabulary in class with the students who explain it into French: this process enables a deeper understanding allowing the students to memorise the newly acquired structures better, seemingly effortlessly.
