French Café Conversation

Enjoy 60 or 90 minutes of French conversation practice in an informal environment 

If you sit down with a group of friends somewhere and have a chat, the conversation can go anywhere. You might talk about the news, culture, business or just gossip. You just don't know. At French Café Conversation it's almost like that. Yes, I start with a plan, we are going to talk about this topic or that but in the end it's a real life conversation and you just don't know where it's going to go. But what you do know is that it will always be interesting and surprising.

The method is based on correction. there is some grammar, I'll make note of your errors during the conversation and then explain the grammar so you'll improve each time. You'll also learn some vocabulary and French expressions. Each workshop is unique and there are no text books and no written exercises. I write the grammar, new vocabulary and French expressions on the screen. This page can be emailed to you.

The group will be lead by a native French teacher

From 2 to 5 participants
