a. Method

Over the last few years my professional life has given me many opportunities to meet newcomers to Brussels. May I take a few moments of your time to describe a new way of learning French.
Having attended an English course in a high school in Greenwich Connecticut (USA) then attended an advanced training course for teaching French at Alliance Française and recently a training course about the famous “Superlearning” method, I gained the experience that allowed me to develop a different approach to teaching a foreign language. This being based on a more relaxed  system and a lively atmosphere, because barriers fall at an early stage.
Your confidence is raised by encouraging you to talk about yourself: your daily work, family, interests, ambitions and views, so that you build your own personal vocabulary. Fortified with this, you feel more assured and as the fear of speaking recedes they can join in the life, and enjoy the experience, of your new country. The lessons are mainly based on dialogues, games, exercises, phonetic drills, visual expression, conversation… written work and grammar are introduced in a relaxing way (music) during the sessions.
A most important aspect of any training is to learn and enjoy, ‘external observation’ is the part of my course that is well appreciated by the students. It occurs in accompanied visits to museums, theaters, and typical places, (Parliament also) all of which enables you to talk personally about your life in Brussels.
The course is suitable for groups and individuals and is organized into a number of levels with targets. When you achieve a target you receive a personal report and reading list suitable for your newfound ability.
I would like to draw your attention to the flexibility of the course: for example, if for professional or private reasons you cannot attend to a French lesson already planned, you can postpone your course. Only the actual lessons given will be charged.
I would be pleased to provide any further information you might require and I would be delighted to meet with you to discuss of your particular needs.
Yours sincerely,
Carol Donnay
