I have thoroughly enjoyed the start of my first term of Pre-Intermediate French. The lessons are fun and Sophie is a great teacher, especially as I am not a natural linguist. The homework is challenging but manageable and the group is very supportive. I really recommend this course and The Marlow Language Centre.
I really enjoy my group lessons with Paola, we all have fun and help each other. With Paola's guidance we work things out, and from knowing nothing last year, I can now read and understand the written Italian passages we are given. We are speaking a lot more too, and Paola is always encouraging us when we get stuck. She has a lovely personality and is a friend as well a teacher.
A few in the class are taking private lessons in addition, to get a grip on what we are doing in class.Which strikes me ,that if that is necessary then the nature of what we do in class and pace needs review to ensure there is a more solid understanding be fore we move on.
I have achieved exactly what I hoped for with Rocio and I am now comfortable in a Spanish language discussion at a medium level. I was not expecting to become fluent in a few lessons but my confidence is higher and worked in practical terms on my recent trip to southern Spain.
