We haven’t met yet? Welcome!

Here’s a great community of prepa students working hard on improving their English and their production for the CGE orals.

For you & your Buddies, I have designed a programme of 8 one-hour khôlle sessions, in which to work on translation, synthesis, and on the oral: structure, content, and style. So this package offers 8 one-hour sessions. Sessions take place weekly, in the evening, so it does not interfere with Prepa classes. For each session, I send you a text to work on a few days before. Sessions are divided in 15 mn of teaching (focusing on a particular element of structure, content, or style) & 45 mn of practice. That 2nd part is like a Q&A session, where you take the floor and ask me your specific questions directly. Also, you take the floor to check whether what you’ve done is ok. You will be invited to share your production. You will give feedback on each other’s production. I strongly believe in team work, and so do your Buddies.
