French course

I intend to organize a course for intermediate to advanced French learners in the early year 2009. Prior, I would like to know how many students could be interested. Indeed, I desire to vary exercises.
I will use new contents - conversations with my sister Christine, My daughter Anne and my friend Marianne, a tutor at LingQ - that will be probably released in January 2009.
I also mean to lead drills that need groups of people who will confront each other, not physically of course, but only verbally. There will be playful exercises. You will have to prepare some courses in advance at home, using your writing skills. Others will be discovered in due course, namely at the last minute.
You will also have one-on-one conversations or/and group discussions about imposed topics.
Eventually, I will answer questions you will put on “ask your tutor” forum as often as needed.

Regards,

Serge

I would be interested.
How do you see this to happen?

Jaroslav,

Actually, I had to modify the pattern of the course I entended to originally set
because it didn’t fit the framework proposed by LingQ. However, the course I released and that will begin on Wednesday, January 7 is close to my first idea. In a near future, I’m going to adapt the drills to the LingQ courses’ pattern. In any case, if it’s impossible, I will propose these courses in group discussion form as far as more than two students attend the conversation - it’d be much more interesting and playful -
Here is a description of things I see them to happen:
Each lesson will be based on recent casual conversations I had with my sister Christine, my daughter anne or my friend Marianne. After each of them we will deal with a topic relevant to it, whether by responding questions, or by taking over it together, or by playing a part in a defined situation. You also will have to write a few lines about the topic only if you feel like doing it.
Chacune des quatre leçons aura comme support une conversation en Français courant. Après chacune d’elles, nous traiterons d’un sujet en rapport avec celle-ci soit en répondant à des questions, soit en débattant tous ensemble, soit en se mettant dans la peau d’un personnage. Vous aurez aussi pour la plupart d’entre elles à écrire un essai de la longueur de votre choix.
I think that will help.

Regards,

Serge
