Often, when students learn French, the hardest thing is to actually speak the language. Which, is a real shame! Especially keeping in mind that most people’s reasons for learning a language is to communicate when travelling. Travelling either to French speaking countries, or to just talk with French speakers when abroad. This is often due to lack of effective speaking practice or a focus on vocabulary or grammar when learning the language…
Knowing all the grammar rules, but not being able to speak or have the confidence to speak can be a real hindrance! So, if you would like to have French conversation classes to feel more confident in speaking the French language or just focus more on your developing your speaking skills, then consider taking one of these courses.
The main aim is to promote speaking! We will learn vocabulary and grammar as you progress, but the whole course is based around you speaking.
The course is one-one with a private French tutor with over 10 years of teaching experience, as well as two-one if you have a partner or friend also looking to learn to speak French. Generally, each course is tailored to the learner and can therefore be 45 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes or 120 minutes. Usually, students take one to two lessons per week.
Below, you will find a 10-week sample French course outline for someone looking to make a move to a French speaking country or travel around in France, Canada or any other French speaking country, which would also include around 60-90 minutes of homework per week:

What Methods Are Used To Promote Speaking?
I employ many different methods to promote speaking in my French conversation classes, including some of these speaking ideas, which include board games, for example. I also use lolly pop sticks, speaking prompts, sentence starters, role plays (although I am not so keen on these!), flash cards, Kloo games, beach balls, cards, PowerPoint games and lots more.
