Gain confidence in writing in French through an engaging and creative class that explores new themes each week!

Bridge the gap between spoken and written French. While speaking and writing use similar structures and a common vocabulary, they each have their own unique set of challenges for language learners. Speaking is fast, fleeting and ephemeral. Writing is permanent, and provides more possibilities for thinking about sentence structure and choice of words.

Each lesson consists of two parts. First, through games and exercises, polish your writing skills and improve your vocabulary. Next, work on a specific writing piece. Get answers to all your writing in French conundrums and improve your skills in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

Led by Sophie Forst.
