Session Summaries by French Tutors

French Tutoring review by Simone in Lockport, IL
We spent the first ten minutes or so chatting in French about what we had both been up to since our last meeting two weeks before. We focused this lesson on Ch 6 of Communication Progressive, which looks at purchasing clothes in a store and the various phrases and grammar that go with that. We used the audio CD that came with the book to listen to dialogues between customers and salespeople and then worked through the book exercises based on these dialogues. The student's comprehension was very strong in the listening portions. He is very quick to pick up new vocabulary and he is able to apply the concepts very quickly in the exercises. It is more challenging for him when it comes to speaking out loud but I can tell that he is speaking more frequently and longer than when we first started and he is more likely now to go into more complex ideas. I keep telling him that practice and having confidence that he actually does know how to say all these things are the most important keys to working on his speaking skills.

French Tutoring review by Carol in Lockport, IL
The student and I continued to work on building his reading skills for this week's session. As his ability to associate consonants with their respective sounds is already fairly strong, I decided to present many of the important French vowel combinations and their sounds to begin our lesson. I listed them on colored flashcards, and laid the cards on the dining room table (our work space) so that we could refer to them throughout the lesson. Next, I placed two picture vocabulary flashcards underneath them along with index cards where I had spelled out the vocabulary word in a series of syllables. I placed all the syllable cards on the table, mixed them up, and asked the student to put the syllable cards together to form the correct spelling of the vocabulary word and then read the word. He did a great job throughout this exercise. He seemed to even understand how the pronunciation of the word changed if he juxtaposed the syllables. We went through approximately 20 vocabulary words in this way. Our last vocabulary words did not have an accompanying picture flashcards, but were words he either had already learned (colors) or words, which would appear in the beginner readers we would tackle at the conclusion of the lesson. Our lesson ended with my helping the student read two of his beginner readers. He did an excellent job reading and seemed to be able to focus well on this exercise. Overall, I think the student was proud of the his work during this week's lesson, which will surely bolster his motivation to improve his reading skills in subsequent lessons.

French Tutoring review by Randa in Lockport, IL
Today we started with the poem the student has been translating, "Son de Cloche." He put his translation on the board and we went over it. At the last session, we went over verb conjugations for parler, finir, and rendre in the conditional tense. Today I asked the student to put the conditional of those three verbs on the board and he was able to do so. Then we worked on the verbs dire, pouvoir, and vouloir. For each verb, I asked him to put the conjugations on the board for present, passe compose, conditional, and future, and then to generate the conditional tense, using the future stem and imperfect endings. He made a few spelling mistakes but he basically knows the conjugations, and more importantly, understands the patterns. He now knows fifty conjugations, 10 verbs in 5 tenses each. This was the last session for the year, but the student knows I will be happy to continue if he decides to go on with this next year.
