FRENCH CONVERSATION LESSONS
A NATIVE TEACHER ON SKYPE!
Conversation session programme
Experience comfortable and motivating one on one French conversation sessions from your home or office with a friendly French native teacher on Skype. The webcam (optional) and the chat board of Skype both bring an important visual side to the lesson, which makes the interaction between the student and the teacher very clear and lively. You'll be able to follow with ease as the teacher writes the new vocabulary, expressions, grammar points and corrections on the Skype chat board. Gain real confidence in speaking while learning at your own pace, and learn the French that you need and use it immediately!
WHAT IS THE FRENCH CONVERSATION PROGRAMME?
Each Conversation Session takes place on Skype with a teacher who is a French native speaker and lasts for 50 minutes.
During the Conversation Session, the teacher will gently correct you as you speak and will type any new vocabulary, expressions and corrections on the Skype chat board. The teacher will motivate you to express your opinions, your thoughts, will debate with you, will have you answer and ask questions, will work on your pronunciation, will encourage you so that you can express yourself in French with more fluidity and up-to-date expressions. After each session, the teacher will send the Skype chat board notes of the conversation to you via email.
Note that the Conversation Sessions do not include any homework. Also please note that the sessions will include some light grammar revision when needed; however, if you have not learned the basics of French grammar or if you need some real review, then we would ask you to first register for a package of Regular lessons. Another option is to sign up for a package of Conversation sessions and a package of Regular lessons and alternate your lessons between the two programmes.
WHO IS IT FOR?
For anyone who has a level of fluency in French (intermediate or advanced) who wishes to practice their verbal expression, improve their comprehension skills in a structured class. You will be gently corrected while speaking in order to gain better oral fluency. Every session lasts 50 minutes.

At the end of the lesson, you will schedule your next lesson date directly with your teacher.
After the lesson, the teacher will send the notes that were taken during class time in a Word file for you to review.
