In order to prepare my lessons, I have several French books about Grammar or exercises, and I am also using plenty of websites depending on the topics you like or the hobbies you have (news, trend, fashion, travels, ...).

If you want to practice your oral skills only, we will focus on the Listening & Speaking part. I will make you practice your pronunciation and correct your mistakes. It is normal to make mistakes :

Without mistakes, you can't improve any language.
