    English with Diana - beginning through advanced, private and small group lessons

    I'm an American classical singer with 8 years' experience teaching (and learning!) languages (Italian, French, English, Czech, Russian, Spanish).

    My specialty is working with pre-intermediate adults, because I love helping people over the threshold of shyness that is often blocking adult learners at this level of experience. The best class, in my opinion, is 75% conversation, so be ready to talk. Homework only if you want it.

    Extra information

    I have my own favorite materials, but I encourage students to bring articles and topics they are excited to share.

    Private lessons in English, German and French
    I first identify the student's shortcomings and then develop a work plan with him / her. My goal is to get students to do their best while having fun and having a taste for language and culture. I want to remedy their difficulties and especially to (re) give them confidence, because I consider that 70% of the capacity to be able to express oneself in another language depends on our confidence in ourselves and / or our abilities. For students who would like to go further, I also give them the opportunity by teaching them the nuances of the language, the language "spoken" or the formal language, mainly written ... it's according to their wishes . Above all, I want to meet the expectations of my students and help them improve where they want. Having (had) direct contact with English and German, I also anchor my courses in the cultural reality of each of these languages ​​by talking about current topics, using new technologies or starting from popular culture to give meaning to what I teach, so that the student sees the direct use he / she can make of his language knowledge. After all, in a more and more globalized world, languages ​​are living and are no longer just fixed forms in books that are several years old. I am therefore turned towards the students and, although I also wish to transmit my passion to them, my point of honor is to be able to understand them and to understand their real difficulties / desires in order to be able to create a course adapted to each one.

    Private lessons in English-French-Russian.All levels
    • Do not hesitate to consult the photos, I have placed feedbacks and recommendations from students • Being a student myself, I have the advantage of understanding the student. I think that studying a language does not only lie in learning vocabulary lists. I have been teaching for 5 years, and have already helped 24 students of different ages. I specialized in teaching beginners (Reading, alphabet, ..) but am delighted to accompany the most experienced! My Erasmus in Manchester in a situation of total bilingualism has enriched the way I teach and I can pride myself on guaranteeing a fast and pleasant progression! ;) -> NO PERSON has "no gift" for languages, the key is just to let you guide.
