Create your French

Create your French lessons with Gil in real-time on the whiteboard. Since you and your life are the content of your course, you will spend most of your time speaking and writing about yourself in French. In the end, you will find yourself with a complete set of French lessons for intermediate personalized to you.

Learn from your mistakes

There is no judgment in the classroom. You will make a lot of mistakes during your learning. But mistakes are the best material to learn and progress quickly. They shade a light on what you still have to learn and improve. They are of the most positive relevance to your apprenticeship and Gil will help you to take the greatest advantage of them.

Full skills development

Each and everyone of your skills for speaking, listening, reading and writing previously ignited at the beginners’ levels will continue to be developed in order to bring you to a fluency level. Writing and reading have now equal primacy with listening and speaking.
