Description

En Parlant supports peer-to-peer communication enabling your students to work with each other–speaking, listening, and eventually thinking in French without hesitation. Built on the principle that one learns to speak French by speaking, En Parlant employs a variety of activities to emphasize oral communication in a carefully supported manner.

Choose the downpour outside, the weekend, or the upcoming holiday; every student wants to share their thoughts and experiences. Share them in French with En Parlant.

Each student is encouraged to fulfill the role of teacher to another student while working on the activities presented. Fitting one of the 50 conversation topics to the moment gives additional context for learning new vocabulary. Students learn and teach each other by taking turns speaking.

Successful personal communication is a highly effective and refreshingly immediate feedback loop for all language learners. By speaking to each other, your students will develop the language reflexes necessary to communicate accurately and meaningfully.
