Woud you like to improve your converesational French? I can offer conversation classes based on varied, highly motivating topics that we will choose together. Each time, you will tell me more about yourself or an interest of yours to build ease and self-confidence.
For this course, I'm mostly a listener and, while I do have lots of questions, I let you do most of the talking so you get real live practice. At the end of the class, I give you your own tailor-made worksheet based on what you actually need to say. We can talk about many topics or even discuss texts/songs/videos you find interesting. This is also great practice for exams such as the DELF.
