    Grace
    Private lessons - Learn English written, oral and read
    Since French is not my mother tongue, I had to learn this language both orally and in writing, and this, in a very short time, to succeed my year in high school, in 5th grade. Following my experiences, I know what it takes to start someone to learn a language, independently. I work in a certain order. No matter what work I have to do with my student, no matter how long I have to reach my goals, I start my class always with a small grammatical exercise of minimum 10 mins. I know, from personal experiences, that a student or student who does his homework without mastering the basic grammar, has a knowledge, neither clear nor precise language, which results in slowing down his learning. I teach in English. This is usually the case, but if I come across a beginner, who does not understand what I say to him in English, then; either I translate the sentences that I pronounce in English, or either, I speak simply in French. Since I also learned a second language, I try to advise my students about my experiences so that they can take over and become independent.

    Lahian
    English course per student having an exchange in the USA
    Hello, I give private lessons in English. During my lessons, we will first determine the weak points of the student. Thereafter, we will try to remedy this by the use of oral and written practical exercises. The course will be mainly based on the targeted shortcomings of the student, but also on the intensive practice of speaking and listening. Finally, I find that self-confidence plays a key role in the practice of a language, and I would try during my classes to reinforce it. Being a student in management / economics, English is a very important language for me and the smooth running of my curriculum. I had the chance to quickly master this language since my childhood and to be able to perfect it by spending a year in the United States. This exchange year has brought me a lot and has strengthened my knowledge of the Anglo-Saxon language and culture. I have already given many courses to close people (Family, friends, ...) in view of obtaining various certificates or diplomas. diplomas: - ICL DIFFERT - CESS (Obtained) - CONSTANTINE HIGH SCHOOL - CERTIFICATE OF AMERICAN ATTENDANCE (Obtained) - HIGH SCHOOL FRANCISCO FERRER - LOGISTICS MANAGEMENT (In progress) Professional experiences: - Five Summer Internships in an American multinational in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg Other: - Christian mutuality - certificate of animation
