Group Lessons

Group courses are offered through the Zoom videoconferencing platform. In order to facilitate students’ learning, homogeneous groups will be formed beforehand. 

In order to help students (civil servants) who are strongly encouraged to stay home during the Corona virus crisis, Practice French Staff members have created a series of podcasts and electronic flash cards (Quizlets) to help them better prepare before taking their oral exams. Through these podcasts, strategies and grammar are discussed. You can pass this message to your colleagues who you feel could benefit from additional help.

Important: In order to use the flashcards, it is necessary to register for free on the website.
