For motivated students who want to learn French with a smile ;-)

I like to use different methods to teach French to students. It can be through songs, drama, role play or videos. I also very often use situations close to the student's experience, such as describing places they have been or talking about what they have experienced. At the same time, I teach the grammar rules to the student. I now live in regions where French has been spoken for over 30 years. Because I have learned French myself (and I am still learning other languages), I can easily put myself in a student's shoes. I can teach in French, Dutch, English, German and Russian.

About Me

Hello, my name is Marcel, I am Dutch and I love languages. I really enjoy teaching languages or practicing them either by speaking, reading or writing. I have lived in several different European countries and have met a lot of different people with different accents. I learned French in France, but now I've been living in Brussels for 20 years. Today I speak French fluently, but it didn't happen overnight, so I know the difficulties of learning another language. I am married and a father of two children (14 and 11) whom I educate in Dutch. As they grow up in a predominantly French-speaking environment, I see and work with them the problems they encounter. I also take Russian lessons (so I know what it's like to be a student). I can teach in French, English, German, Russian and of course in Dutch :-) Looking forward to meeting you!

Education

I studied in the Netherlands where I lived until I had the of 23. I did the equivalent of a graduate in tourism there - for two years I have been training as a coach.

Experience / Qualifications

30 years of experience learning and speaking other languages - trying to improve them. 10 years of experience as a language teacher

Marcel maakt "Frans leren met een glimlach" helemaal waar.
Marcel s'adapte au niveau et connaissance d'autres langues de l'élève. Le premier cours était intense, mais très interactive, et après une seule heure j'ai appris à lire, conjuguer les verbes, des phrases basiques et même de compter jusqu'à 100! Je n'ai aucune doute qu'avec Marcel, je vais vite apprendre à parler néerlandais :)
After a few lessons I can only recommend him. Learning with Marcel is fun and effective.
Very nice first lesson! :)
Un prof au top: patient, créatif, disponible et sympathique! Sait parfaitement s'adapter à l'élève et construire un programme sur la longue durée. Je ne peux que recommander!
...
I use several methods which are specially conceived to teach Dutch to people who have a different mother tongue. I really like to use methods out of the ordinary like role games or methods with which you learn while playing. All these adapted to the student's situation of course. As I learned myself a couple of other languages, it is easy for me to detect difficulties a student can encounter and adapt the way of learning. I can teach in English, French, German and Russian.

Send a message explaining your needs and Marcel will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.

I prepare my class beforehand according to the needs of the student and the content of his/her course. In my science classes, I start with a general overview of the matter to make sure the basics are understood. Furthermore, I will make sure the student feels comfortable solving problems or understanding pathways and mechanisms. I prepare my class beforehand according to the needs of the student and the content of his/her course.

Serdane
French as a foreign language course for teenagers and adults.
My name is Serdane and I offer French as a foreign language classes for teenagers and adults. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Languages are my passion, and I am always happy to share this passion with others. Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority, give confidence to the student: the French is within the reach of all! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can continue his career independently. My rate includes full support (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). Looking forward to reading you.

Kevin
Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

And at the end of each session, I give lessons with exercises to do as homework to examine your shortcomings and monitor your progress. -------------------------------------- Here are some things to know about the DELF and DALF: The DELF (Diploma of Studies in French Language) and the DALF (Advanced Diploma in French Language) are two official and quality diplomas. They are harmonized on the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. They include the following six levels, in ascending order: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. These two diplomas are suitable for all ages and all audiences. In addition, the DELF B2, and increasingly the DALF C1, allow students to enter French, European or French-speaking universities, and certain Grandes Ecoles. -------------------------------------- Will you have DELF or DALF exams to pass? Do you need to follow specific sessions with me to improve your level? Don't hesitate to book your sessions so that we can start the preparation. I am available !

Learning Spanish in fun way with Native Teacher! Spanish from Spain and South America
Hello! I am Claudia from Peru and I grew up in Italy, I am a Spanish native teacher offering funny and useful Spanish Language lessons. I have experience of teaching Spanish in academies for 6 years. I have a bachelor's degree in Literature and Philosophy. No matter your language level, I will speak to you in Spanish from the beginning and help you express yourself and improve your pronunciation and vocabulary! My methodology focuses on oral expression, making you feel comfortable expressing yourself in Spanish, since speaking is the form of communication that we use the most, although it is hardly practiced in the classroom. Of course, we will also review the rest of the communication areas and we will pay special attention to the grammatical issues on which we have to work. I like to teach, focusing on the strengths of my students, giving them confidence to achieve their goals. You will naturally gain your speaking skills through classes with me, I have didactic materials but I focus on helping you improve listening and speaking in our conversations more. I love teaching not only the language but also the culture, we can do conversation about cinema, literature and music from Peru, and I can explain you the differences between Spanish from Spain and Spanish from Latin America. It would be my pleasure to teach all levels, beginners are very welcome! All kids and adults are welcome too!
