In this block of classes students will learn all of the core grammar concepts necessary to improve their accuracy, fluency and competency level in French. This is an interactive class where students have an opportunity to use the grammar and learn about the rules through discovery, with the guidance of the teacher and some explicit explanations. More emphasis is placed on being able to communicate using the grammar point, which is why there are so many opportunities to practice and improve. Students will be able to practice the 4 language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in an integrated setting. Class topics a wide variety of relevant subjects through different learning techniques that encourage communication in a real world environment.
