  1. Oral expression

  2. Written expression and comprehension

  3. Oral expression

Oral expression: with learners of the same level, converse in French on various topics (everyday life, professional life, travels, passions, etc.). The aim is to work on pronunciation, intonation and accentuation.

Written expression and comprehension: discover different writing styles to broaden your range of expressions! Here the emphasis is on grammar, vocabulary and idiomatic expressions. 

Oral expression: the documents used in class are designed to work on your listening and reading skills. Through repetition, you will develop reflexes and automatisms!
