Listen to a real French lesson that I recorded
This is a new concept to give you the opportunity to have a casual French session on Skype with me, since I can’t commit to recurring lessons anymore. For you, it is a great opportunity to get my personal feedback on your French and ask me anything that you need help with.
Students taking the lesson agree to be recorded (I make sure any personal detail is then edited out) and the result may become a podcast episode…like today! This way, my feedback is both personal and still helping as many of you as possible ?
When you participate, you get your own copy of the notes AND the mp3 recording of the lesson.
The first session (Stephen, episode 172) was informal conversation.
Today’s session is with Susan, a student from the USA. Susan wanted to ask me specific questions she was having while reading Martin Page’s French novel “La disparition de Paris et sa renaissance en Afrique”. As you will hear, her questions are often about prepositions, particularly the use of the preposition “DE” (I talked about “de” in episodes 176, 178 and 180 of the podcast). So it’s very specific and grammar-based and allowed us to explain or brush-up some rules to better understand the sentence structures.
In the shownotes you’ll find the PDF file with the notes I took for Susan. You may like to use it to follow our conversation!
You implore me to keep going – you’ve enjoyed learning from a real French lesson situation, I encourage you to participate because there cannot be any more episodes without students!
