2) Lots of conversation + a bit of writing + a bit of grammar

In this program, you will use the Grandmaison Language School conversation fascicules and grammar book with exercises (answer key provided). We recommend that you do the grammar exercises on your own to maximize the time spent with your teacher.

During the course, your teacher will ensure that you can use the grammar you have just learned in everyday conversation.

For the written program, you will mainly work with emails you have written during the day. This allows you to immediately put into practice your learning to improve structure, choose appropriate vocabulary, write more clearly, use a wider variety of personalized salutations—and give your email messages a professional touch.

Material: Conversation fascicule – grammar – email messages
