Grammaire - Conversation - Vocabulaire - Avancé (B2)

Advanced

Ce cours est un bon mélange de conversation et de révisions de points de grammaire pour perfectionner la structure et le vocabulaire ainsi que pour prendre confiance en soi!

Vous commencerez par un "Quoi de neuf?" rapide par personne, pour connecter entre les étudiants, partager des nouvelles, échanger sur ce qui vous a marqué pendant la semaine (pas de discussion sur les polémiques sur la politique américaine, ni de discussions sur la Covid).

Vous continuerez le cours avec un point de grammaire (nouveau ou à réviser) et des exercices. Il y aura un peu de devoirs chaque semaine. 

Enfin, vous présenterez un sujet en français sur ce que vous avez lu, vu ou écouté en français aussi (sujet au choix, comme par exemple l'art, l'écologie, la culture, etc.).


Pace: Regular

Grammaire - avancé (B2-C1)

Advanced

De manière générale, le cours de grammaire est structuré de la façon suivante :

  • Échange oral de 30-40 minutes utilisant les points grammaticaux révisés et/ou à réviser.
  • Correction collective des devoirs, pendant laquelle les étudiants sont libres de poser des questions, et le professeur y répond, en donnant explications et exemples.
  • Quand nécessaire, pratique supplémentaire avec exercices en classe, la plupart du temps basés sur le livre de Grammaire Progressive du Français, mais parfois sur d’autres supports complémentaires sélectionnés par le professeur, comme des exercices interactifs de TV5Monde, Bonjour de France, etc.
  • Lorsqu’un point grammatical a été assimilé, la dernière partie du cours se concentre alors sur un nouvel aspect grammatical.
