Spanish classes, for children or adults, from A1-C2 levels
I am a ELE Spanish teacher, from Spain. I have worked for EF Education First in Costa Rica, this has made me learn a lot about the Latin American culture, and its derivation of Spanish, this makes me have more knowledge about Spanish and how to teach it. Spanish is a beautiful language and is currently one of the most widely spoken languages ​​in the world. In my classes you will learn about everything that this language encompasses, from grammar, lexicon, communication, history, literature. Basically what the student demands. I like to give dynamic classes, in which I focus on the student's progress, and I make sure that the student can see by himself his progress with a series of samples from the first class.

Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.

French lessons by mother tongue French teacher for 30 years
Audio-Psycho-Linguist for more than 30 years, passionate about modern languages, I teach French to children, adolescents and adults, during classes where good humor and relaxation reign. Using easy and simple audio-linguistic exercises, I help each student at his level to progress quickly in conversation, pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar, in the form of a friendly and warm exchange. The important thing is that the student dares to speak and becomes confident in his way of expressing himself in French and of acquiring the new bases. My method is based on an experience and practice of more than 30 years, of students of all nationalities to help them according to their aptitudes to integrate the French language and to appreciate it. Conversation, reading, grammar and vocabulary exercises, from articles or texts, according to the needs and wishes of each. Being a voice pose teacher, I also offer to learn songs or nursery rhymes for children.

Russian Language A1 - C2 / Русский язык и литература
Hi All, thank you for checking out my course. This class is open to students of all levels. Whether you are only starting to learn the wild-looking letters of the Cyrillic alphabet, or whether you are looking to practise your written and spoken Russian, I would be delighted to accompany you at any stage of your Russian-learning journey. For more advanced students, I would be happy to help you get to know one of the most defining aspects of the Russian language, namely its novels and poetry, which would be a great way to learn about the 'mysterious' Russian soul. I believe that studying in three different countries have allowed me to try out and assess various approaches to education in general and teaching languages in particular - from the rigourous Russian system based on ensuring that the students will obtain exceptional spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation skills, to the more relaxed yet more critical and analytical Western approach, focused on problem-solving and independent work. There is a vast bank of techniques and methods that will be used in class to peak and maintain your interest. And since I'm a student too, I would be able to share my personal tips and tricks with you to help you reach whatever goal you have set for yourself - be it being able to wow your friends and family by reciting a poem in the language of Dostoyevski, or impressing your future collegues with the thorough knowledge of Russian current affairs in their mother tongue!
