Comprehensive English: Conversation, grammar and reading comprehension

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Normally the foreign language is learned in an unnatural way by focusing on grammar and writing, when in reality we know that a language is learned first by speaking and then by reading and writing. Just as young children do, remembering and associating.
Learning to use and enjoy a language is the basis for learning to read and write later. With this inversion of the order of the factors, the learning of grammatical rules and spelling is not forgotten, but rather they can be learned more easily as soon as they begin to acquire oral skills.

English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students) + IELTS
I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

Louise
Teach English language, level and class adapted to student
Adapted courses for each level. Learning having a good time is my motto. Various activities: readings, pronunciation, dictations, exercises, exchanges, discussions, videos, listening etc. Courses adapted to each request. We learn in a good atmosphere and check the progress together.

Take your English or German to the next level with me!
"One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way." I am an absolute language enthusiast, who is as well lucky to pursue her greatest hobby at the university - I study to become a teacher of both English and German. I specialize in teaching mostly through conversation, during which I as well explain the main principles of grammar. Why so? I do not want my students to be overwhelmed by grammar and only get a minor option to speak and use what they just learned. This way of teaching as well allows me (and my students) to get to know each other better, which I find important. I prefer eye to eye lessons to the ones through Skype, as I believe that it makes a great difference when you know your language partner in person, not only through a laptop screen. Do not hesitate to contact me, I am looking forward to meeting you!

Paula
Spanish classes for all levels with native teacher
It always depends on the students, the level they have and what they want to learn. Some people are better speaking while others have great listening skills or a wide grammar knowledge. I divide the class into parts in order to do speaking, listening, reading and grammar, giving more emphasis on those that are more difficult for them and trying to make improvements in those parts where they have more ability.

Paula
English, Spanish and Portuguese Teacher with more that 10 years experience in Barcelona
Dynamic and fun classes! Always adapted to the students' needs. Games are a very important part of my classes. Classes can also be given in different places such as squares and parks as well as combining walking and conversation. Send me a message and let's start learning! :D

Conversational and Written English, including Proofreading, Public Speaking and Interview Preparation
I am a TEFL-qualified native English speaker from Ireland, who specializes in Conversational and Business English. I also have a Ph.D. in History and spent years teaching at Trinity College Dublin before working for 3 years as a financial recruitment consultant training candidates to secure their perfect job. I use my professional experience to guide students through unique challenges, such as; making presentations in English, proofreading written work including theses, CV writing and preparing for an interview in English. Whatever your specific English requirements are, I can assist. I practice the "Dogme Teaching Method", which focuses classes on the students' specific needs and interests, rather than spending time on irrelevant grammar or language that the student will not use.

Learn the language with a local teacher who will adapt to your needs! :)
I am a multilingual translator who has been working as a language teacher for 4 years now. As my parents are Spanish (Catalan) and French, I am native in the three languages. I have also studied abroad, so I have a C2 level in English (with the Proficiency Certificate). Hence, I also prepare students for all the Cambridge English exams (First Certificate-B2, Advanced-C1 and Proficiency-C2).

Pierre
History, Political Science, Essay writing, Test Prep Tutoring
Having worked in an alternative school, my approach is very much based on the understanding and ways of learning of each student. Rather than imposing a specific method on the student I try and understand how they work, how they understand the subject and what the university or school requires of them, and help them improve in the areas needed. I specialize in tutoring History and Political Science for school (iGCSE, A-LEVEL, IB) and university (Bachelors). I teach both content and form (essay writing and exam prep skills).

Aprende Español para la vida real. Mejora tu comunicación en tu entorno laboral y social.
Ofrezco clases bien estructuradas en las que el alumno aprende a leer, escribir, escuchar y hablar, siempre, en un contexto real. Combino diferentes tipos de actividades y materiales para hacer la clase amena y que el alumno se sienta cómodo. A mis alumnos de español , les recomiendo salir del aula y conocer Barcelona: visitar una exposición, ir de compras, al mercado y hacer diferentes actividades para practicar el idioma en situaciones reales. Creo que cada alumno tiene su propio ritmo de aprendizaje y se debe respetar. Con un buen profesor todos pueden alcanzar su objetivo.
