Robin Sedman-SmithHost: I currently teach French in a school in Shropshire and am learning Spanish. I lived in Germany for two years, and spent 13 years teaching German in a grammar school where I still work as a boarding tutor.

Can you translate this sentence: Je vais habiter à New York. It says "I am going to live in New York". In this class, students will learn how to say this sentence and more! Students will be guided through how to form sentences starting with "je vais" or "je veux" to discuss what they want to do and what they are going to do. This class will give students the opportunity to practice speaking in French and build their confidence. This class is aimed at students in Year 8 but is great for any student who wants to review as well!
