Le programme de la journee:
In the morning, the teacher will compare both English and French grammar to give you a better understanding of grammar concepts that are often difficult to apprehend. You will be able to review how complex sentences are formed in both languages thanks to the teacher's explanations, observing texts and sentences 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.
