Session Summaries by French Tutors

Federal Way, WA French tutoring
The student and I finished Act 1 and went over comprehension questions. She is understanding the humor of the piece, which is important because the text is fairly difficult, and the descriptions can be unamusing if the satirical tone is not identified. We did listening exercises during which she listened to people from different parts of France speak and tried to understand them. This will help her get used to hearing non-academic French language and speed. She could distinguish the different accents. Harsher accents were easier for her to understand, as the sound was closer to her own pronunciation. We also worked on "The Stranger by Camus," which was part of her classwork.

My session with the student went really well tonight. She is improving all the time! The student shared with me that her quiz over weather went really well yesterday, and that she felt confident while taking it. She did not struggle with the quiz as she would have in the past. This is really excellent. Tonight we went over the conjugations of verbs in both the present and past tense (le passe compose); there is a lot of improvement here. The student has gotten a lot quicker with conjugating, especially with the past tense which is always more difficult for any student. We even went over two verbs that the student had not learned yet in class, but that are very important to learn, she did well. We again went over the verbs to be used with etre in the passe compose, and the student has improved here as well. She shared that she has been practicing and memorizing them; this is great! Her pronunciation continues to impress me. We went over the exercises that I sent to her, and she did very, very well on them. The student has been making note cards, which I always highly recommend, and they are really aiding her. She explained to me how she uses them, and it is perfect. The student has a unit test this Friday so I will be creating a study guide of sorts for her that is similar to the practice sentences that I sent to her. The student does extremely well when concepts are explained to her; as I have mentioned before, when we go over topics together, it clicks for her and she understands what her teacher has taught and then what he is talking about the next day, so I feel that a study guide will help the student. She is also making more note cards to study with since a portion of the test appears to have a lot of vocabulary. I have advised the student to let me know if she has any questions between now and the day of her test. For our next session, we will practice conjugations, work on two past tense forms, and creating sentences that are in the present in the negative.

We continued working on relative pronouns and the student showed improvement from Monday. We went over the responses he had written in class, and explained why they were correct or incorrect. With simple guidance, he was able to find the errors and think of the correct answer. We are also working on pronunciation, specifically on when to pronounce the final consonant. He has already improved since Monday on words that end in "ette," and as we continue we'll focus on other endings as well. We watched a video of a young French girl telling a story, and the student wrote down words he was able to pick out that he didn't know. He did extremely well, and caught at least 8 new words that we then spelled and defined. We'll continue to do this sort of exercise with videos and songs, and then use the words he learns in our conversations. The student has a great attitude, and I enjoy working with him! I recommended he watch a tv show in French with English subtitles over the weekend, and repeat the exercise of writing down new words.

Today, the student and I again focused heavily on English-to-Spanish translations. I provided him with sentences ranging in complexity and had him translate them to Spanish. I incorporated vocabulary terms from his index cards and constructed sentences so we could include terms he hasn't practiced in a while. We again worked with verbs such as comer, nadar, ser, estar, preferir, gustar, encantar, tener, querer, and ir. We also used the preterite tense today, which he conjugated correctly. We are still practicing identifying when it is appropriate to use ser vs estar, and we will continue working on gender/number agreement. We are also working on linking nouns with movement verbs such as saying voy a la vs voy al. We will put some of the more common phrases onto verb sheets so that he can practice reciting them aloud on his own.

The student started learning katakana today, which is the second form of Japanese scripts. Katakana is often used to write out words that are of foreign origin (e.g., cake, chocolate). We went over 10 katakana (a i u e o ka ki ku ke ko). He also wrote his full name in katakana. He should practice katakana and the previous material during his vacation.

We looked over the last translation in the textbook and continued along with some of the additional "fabulae ancillantes." The student is already getting much better at recognizing verbs and translating appropriately. The student's homework assignment is to answer nine comprehension questions about Part II of "Clemens Deos Vocat."
