French Tutorial Center

Tutorial Center

Tutorial assistance with French assignments and conversational practice is available on a walk-in basis for current students. The French Tutorial Center is a free service for UT students, especially those enrolled in Lower Division French courses.  

The Center is currently located in HRH 4.102B, TBA (fall and spring only).

Strategies:
There are many ways to benefit from the Tutorial Center; here are a few suggestions:

  • Have a purpose in mind for each visit.
  • To practice pronunciation, read out loud and have the tutor correct your pronunciation;
  • To practice listening comprehension, listen to the tutor with your book closed and repeat what the tutor says.
  • To practice conversation, have an idea of something you'd like to talk about, and have a couple of sentences or questions prepared to start with.
  • To practice grammar and vocabulary, use activities from the text (review or current material). Have the tutor ask you questions aloud, without your seeing them.
  • The center is staffed by TAs working in many different courses, so bring your books and course packet with you so the tutor can use your vocabulary and grammar.
    NOTE: Tutors may answer specific questions and explain usage, but no advanced editing on compositions and homework.

Additionally, Le Cercle français will be held every Friday from 3-4 at the Cactus Café in the Texas Union.  The coffee hour will run from Friday, February 6 through Friday, May 1.
