Nederlandstalige universitaire student geeft Franse lessen voor Nederlandstaligen
Ik stel mijn les ter bestemming van Nederlandstaligen die Frans willen leren, die daar moeilijkheden mee hebben op school, of die gewoon hun gespreksvaardigheden willen verfijnen. Frans is mijn moedertaal, en ik heb Latijn en Grieks gestudeerd, waardoor ik een dieper inzicht heb op de Franse grammatica en taal.
English: Pronunciation (British or American). NO grammar lessons. Adults only.
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

Moreover, I've had the opportunity to live and study abroad in countries like the United States, Germany and France and I have achieved the C2 level in english (Cambridge title), and the basic levels in French and German.
