Get this pack of 10 courses and attend either General French courses, French for professionals or Preparation for DELF/DALF exam. You will have 1 or 2 courses each week.
Thanks to those tailor-made classes, you will learn exactly what you need each time.
Your teacher will focus on vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and conjugation difficulties that you will encounter during the course. This will be the start of your progress. In between every two lessons, you will have homework or activities to do in order to challenge your listening, writing, translating and reading skills.
During the course, conversation will be the starting point to get more into the language details.
Each course will rely on different techniques :
Reading out-loud of an article, explanation of specific vocabulary and replying to questions as a discussion with your teacher
Presentation of a grammar lesson and accomplishment of exercises from a book that I will recommend to you in order to learn French as a foreign language
Description of a picture in order to use your French vocabulary and learn new words
Replying to questions about French culture and French expressions
Role playing to practice your speaking and understanding skills
Watching a very short video (a few minutes) and discussion about the subject
Examples of homework and activities to learn French at home between two lessons :
Finish the exercises on the topic we have seen in class

Nuala Cahill –
I have practised oral french with Aurelia over the past two years. I am retired and have done several classes in groups and other settings because I wished to become fairly fluent, both for my own enjoyment as well as for going on holidays and communicating with french people. I never really became as fluent as I would like and decided to try one-on-one tuition. I went online and found Aurelia. I found her classes very interesting and helpful.
They were especially useful because they were tailor-made to my own specific needs. The classes had great variety , combining grammar needs as they arose with a wide variety of interesting topics. These topics took many forms…a newspaper article, a video, simple oral conversation and reading aloud. The reading aloud exercise was very interesting because it enabled me to get used to hearing my own voice speaking french. I used to be very self conscious when hearing myself speak french.
I was on holiday in France this summer for the first time since the pandemic and I was very happy with how I could converse, and more importantly, understand, the people I spoke with. I consider myself very fortunate and I’m immensely grateful to Aurelia, whom I had never met or known before.
