She learned the hard way what it means when, try as you might to speak proper French, the store clerk continues to crinkle up his nose at your pronunciation and walk away as if you're speaking Swahili.  Learn her tricks and improve your confidence immediately!

Cours pour personnes de langue maternelle française.


Il s'agit d'un cours pour ceux qui veulent peaufiner leur niveau d'anglais en apprenant les astuces "cachées" de la langue:

  expressions idomatiques, combinaisons "verbe + prepositions" si difficiles pour les étrangers et avec un accent particulier sur la prononciation. 

On lira des articles et on fera des exercises ensemble pour souligner ces points.


Niveau d'anglais requis: Intermédiaire & +


Price: $120/month (for 4 classes)


Every Tuesday, 6 pm to 8 pm 


Next workshop: TBD
