 GROUP CLASSES

 

 17th SEPTEMBER 2018- 5th JULY 2019

 

 

email for more information if you want to join

 

Maximum 6 per class so that each student has time to speak and participate with individual feedback. 

No classrooms, a living room environment where we have together tea, coffre or red wine depending on the time Relaxed and friendly atmosphere and engaging topics ensure the best learning experience possible.

Speaking and oral comprehension are a priority, but we work the four skills in a non-linear approach which keeps your attention and curiosity. Grammar is always studied in  context. (except during the workshop grammar reinforcement ).

Lots of homework can be done - and corrected - if you want to maximize your involvment. Nothing compulsory of course... you're adults! 

We work with authentic documents (video-audio) on topics of interest for each participant. This way more  progress can be made by all, each student taking advantage of the others experience and interests. 

 Olala is known for its results, its flexibility and the attention paid to everyone.

We are happy of that but your envolvement is the first key to success.

Nothing is magic, even in Chamonix !

 

a cheap solution for active learners
