Ways to learn French
Je veux apprendre le français…Comment ca marche?
I want to learn French…How does it work?
So, you have decided to take up French lessons…what happens now?
Step 1: Confirmation de la première leçon - Setting up the initial lesson
We like to set up an initial lesson to ensure that you and your French tutor get on well.
We often hear new students say that they have tried to learn French in the past but have not been successful because they are “no good at languages”. We say: “it is simply that you have not yet met the right tutor”.
Every student learns in a unique way: some students learn through listening, some through seeing written text and others need to write everything themselves to ensure it is logged in their minds…so, by organising an initial lesson, we can ensure that you and your tutor “gel”!
Step 2: Votre tuteur vous appelle - Your Tutor gets in touch
Before the first lesson takes place, we will send you a confirmation of booking with the tutor’s name and the details of the initial lesson. A few days before the lesson takes place, your French tutor will call you to introduce him/herself, assess your level and discuss his/her plans for the lesson. This is an ideal opportunity for you to have a chat about your goals and prior language learning experiences.
Step 3: La première leçon et vos impressions - Initial lesson and Feedback
The initial lesson is an ideal time for you to discuss how best to achieve your goals: your French tutor will be able to advise you on lesson length, extra study and much more.
After you have had your initial lesson, a Conversation Piece representative will call you and your tutor to ask for feedback. This is your opportunity to discuss with us how the lessons went and how you wish to proceed. We always like to hear your feedback, good or bad!
Step 4: Les leçons suivantes - Further lessons
If you enjoyed your initial lesson, as we believe you will, we will discuss with you a further booking. We prefer lessons to be booked one month at a time (e.g. 4 hours if you have a 1-hour lesson per week or 6 hours if you have a 1.5-hour lesson per week, etc.) but we also offer discounts on larger bookings so it is worth discussing your plans with us so that we can work out the best deal for you.
From then on, we will call you when your booking comes to an end to renew.
