In a café or in the comfort of your own home, adult conversation class.  Classes are purely conversational and aim at developing oral fluency and aural skills. The course is tailor-made and I choose topics, activities and resources which, I feel, will motivate participants to converse.  Do you travel to France regularly?  Do you need a little help to communicate over there? Do you have friends in the same situation?  Get in touch with me and I would be delighted to set up a tailor-made class to suit your needs.  Native speaker with experience in teaching French. Currently undergoing accreditation by the Alliance Française. Enrolment open, book early, limited spaces. Contact : Lisa, 087-9058656 / Facebook : Bonjour Soleil French
