Grammar clinic: les past tenses

Date: 22 Sep 2015, 10:00am - 3:00pm (GMT+10:00) Melbourne

French past tenses can be tricky. Le passé composé vs l'imparfait issue is a usual struggle until students truly understand each of these tenses and the differences between them. There's also the matter of le plus-que-parfait, which needs to be understood to be used correctly in French.
Get past this confusion with this crash course.

Le programme de la journee:

In the morning, the teacher will present in English the past tenses commonly used in French. You will be able to review how they are formed and when they are used by comparing with English, observing texts and completing various exercises.
In the afternoon, various speaking activities will take place to allow you put your skills in practice: conversation, games, jeux de roles, etc.
