Suggestions for a smallish conversational French course in Plainpalais or Carouge

Hi folks, I'm looking for suggestions for a mid-beginners level conversational French course. Would like to find a teach who is not too doctrinaire, but wants to get us speaking.


I was looking at iFage but am concerned they will pack the classes too full. Need something small so we can maintain physical distancing.


Ideally would be in Plainpalais or Carouge.


Cheers.

The tuition at Ifage is excellent but intensive.  Also, their courses are quite pricey, so if you can’t keep pace they’re not ideal.


You would probably find the classes at the Université populaire de Genève to your taste but I don’t know how they’ve been operating during confinement nor their plans for the autumn, so best to contact them via their website.


You could also check out the language groups on glocals.


All the best, R.

Hey Sam, 


I'm currently enrolled at Ifage now and there are 10 of us in the class. And I've found it to have the right balance between teaching strict grammar and practicing speaking. I've tried many French classes, and this has been one of the better  ones.


Also the teacher has been careful about using sanitisers and masks in the class.

So everybody in the course wears a mask?

Hey Chris,


It's not mandatory currently for everyone to wear a mask but many people in the class already do so voluntarily. I'm not sure if this rule will change with stricter measures.


The teacher cleans the tables before and after each class and she even sprays her hands before handing us worksheets. There is also hand sanitizers available for everyone in the class as well. 


I hope this helps!
