Practical ways to improve your French conversation skills

20170201_124411

 

You’ve been learning French for a while now, but, somehow, you are not really satisfied with your ability to speak the language. Here are some efficient tools to help you improve your fluency.

  • “Practice makes perfect”: this proverb has been proven to be true. Even if your schedule is quite busy, be committed to setting 15 minutes of your time apart for French. With 15 minutes daily , you will reap more results than with one hour weekly. It is much better to have a short-timed, regular time dedicated to French during which you can concentrate fully: your brain will be more receptive if you do it this way.
  • do you like music? Why not listen, then to a bunch of popular French songs? Listen carefully at first; then become more daring and sing along! You could even record yourself on tape to monitor your progress.
  • Listen to simple sentences. Repeat them on a regular basis. Then start repeating them faster, like a normal French person would speak.
  • Always listen to French movies in the original language. Use subtitles to help you and let your ear get used to the language.
  • Speak French in front of your mirror. Rehearse as much as much as needed!
  • Ask your way, order your coffee, buy your bread in French! Do not be afraid to make mistakes, there will always be a person of good will to help you out.
  • Learn your structures and idioms. They will be very useful to build up a conversation that sounds good.

Finally, ask a native speaker of French! I am offering services in the heart of Paris in form of 1 to 1 or 2 to 1 tuition. Take advantage of the -10% for the set of 2 lessons ( offer lasts until March the 14th). I’ll be more than happy to help you out with your specific requests. The same offer is also available for German language, as I am also a native speaker and teacher of German.

Do not hesitate any longer. Book NOW.

Short tourist trips to Paris: is it worth having French lessons?

You have been planning a trip to the French Capital a long time ago. Your hotel or your short term rental apartment is booked, you just bought your tickets.

In the whole effervescence of your upcoming trip, you have planned a lot of things ahead-except maybe for intensive French lessons.

You are staying for 6 weeks or even less to Paris and you have been wondering: should I take some intensive French lessons? Is it really worth it? Will I manage to schedule 10 lessons with all I have to do and to view in the City of Lights?

The answer is YES! It is really worth seizing the opportunity to improve your French and here is why:

  • all lessons are scheduled in 2 hours sessions, which makes it easy to plan over a timeframe of 2 weeks, for instance. Just ask me and I will help you make the lessons fit into your already busy schedule in Paris.
  • while being in Paris, your brain will be stimulated with info in French coming from all sides. You also might be challenged to respond in French in very concrete situations.
  • studying French will give you the weapons needed to speak correctly. With lessons that are totally adapted to your needs, we will work on pronounciation, intonation, vocabulary, grammar and dialogues. The method I am using puts you in concrete communication situations straight away
  • it is all FUN…as we progress, you will be more confident and you will have fun while practicing your French!

 

Coming to Paris soon? Book your lessons NOW. French lessons in Paris are ALWAYS a good idea.
