I’ve added a written feedback option to this course as my students in my Université series loved it so much ( especially my feedback on your audio recordings - I will help you make the simple adjustments that create major progress ). Every week, I will sit with all of your homework ( written and recorded ) and thoughtfully write out my feedback on the areas that are standing out as challenges - both with grammar and pronunciation.
Student have shared with me that they feel as if I am sitting in the room with them as they read it - that’s how detailed and personal it is. I clear my schedule to be able to sit with your work + focus on your progress every Monday.
