Easy and Effective French Learning Courses with Fun :))

Passionate about languages and the art of transmitting knowledge, I hold a PhD in Language Science, with a major in linguistics. My years of experience as FLE teacher (in France and Germany) and my PhD on the simplification of specialized medical texts (for non-experts) have sharpened my sense of pedagogy.
I therefore offer my learners personalized French classes that address all their specific needs, both oral and written, through a personalized and easy learning process and in a good atmosphere. Thanks to this method, you will quickly notice improvements in your language skills.
The course schedule will be defined after discussion and according to your availability. Given the current situation, the courses will be mainly online (via Zoom or Skype) but with the possibility of organizing face-to-face sessions if needed.

About Me

I am passionate about teaching, about knowledge transfer and about languages that is the reason why i carried out studies, and most particularly my PhD, around this specific topic : languages. Thus is teaching languages a passion for me, an activity that brings me joy. The satisfaction of my learners is my main objective and we work together in order to make it possible. As a passionate teacher, i always endeavour to increase learning potentials of my students by creating an effective learning environment. Indeed my teaching method is entirely shaped by the learner’s needs, but there are at least three ingredients that never miss : fun, simplicity and effectiveness, because from my 4 years teaching experience, I came to understand that fun and simplicity (in the way the lesson is taught) play a key role for an effective and successful teaching.

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.
