Excellent that you want to improve your spoken French and this is to be encouraged.

On a practical note, as someone who has been an interviewer for French at Oxford, I can tell you that the application process puts more emphasis on grammar and aptitude for literary studies than speaking ability (though it shouldn't be neglected).

Many native French speakers will be able to help you with your speaking but not necessarily with finer points of grammar, for which I would recommend a good grammar book like A French Reference Grammar (Ferrar), or French Grammar and Usage (Hawkins and Towell).

Thank you! I really appreciate the advice! I will definitely get those grammar books and focus on that. I still think if I talk to someone in french then naturally some of the grammar will follow too so I will do a mixture of both. Again, thank you!
