What students say about this course
J'ai vraiment aimé votre classe de Français AP. Cela m'a beaucoup aidé dans ma préparation pour l'examen parce que j'ai pu m'entraîner pour l'examen et obtenir des commentaires sur mon travail écrit.
En parlant de l'examen, cela s'est très bien passé aujourd'hui et j'étais prête pour chaque tâche de l'examen. Merci beaucoup pour votre aide à me préparer à l'examen avec la classe de l'Alliance Française! - Archie (French 4/5: Tutoring for the AP French Language and Culture exam)
For me, the most useful aspect of the class was the opportunity to practice speaking and attain feedback right away. I believe that having all of the students speak frequently was very beneficial. Moreover, the writing practice was also helpful as it got me more accustomed to writing French essays and emails and the feedback I received regarding grammar and word choice was great. I think it was great that we often started with a short French video and I liked that sometimes we would discuss the topics, as many were socially and culturally relevant. I would've liked it better if we discussed the videos every week because that would be more speaking practice and it would've been discussions revolving around salient issues that everyone thinks about. Finally, the reading practice that we did was fantastic as I became more and more comfortable reading in French.
Taking the class has really helped me prepare for the AP Exam and I am glad I took it. Thank you so much for being a great teacher and always providing me with constructive feedback! - Izabella (French 4/5: Tutoring for the AP French Language and Culture exam).
