Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session we practiced making sentences with demonstrative adjectives and discussed their different forms (including compound forms like celui, celle, ceux) and their common uses in French. We also went over a few expressions using several demonstrative adjectives in a row and unpacked them together."
"We reviewed a story the first student wrote for her oral exam and did corrections and practice. The second student and I did a review of articles, objects in a kitchen and verbs to do with chores in the present and the past."
"Today we began a new chapter talking about holidays and different words and phrases that go with each of them. We are also continuing our practice of the past tense - passe compose. The student is slowly understanding how to use the two verb version of the past. Now the challenge is to get her to continue to remember what we have been studying from week to week. She still seems at odds with words we discussed weeks ago. Next week, we will work on negating the passe compose and I will remind her of the importance of keeping up with this second language."
