Are you living in Amsterdam and want to learn English or German? I can help you with that! We will read articles or books that you are interested in and discuss them in German/English. We will discuss the grammar and try to learn as much as possible through experience (learning by doing).

Marija
Learning languages is fun and easy :) try it out with me!
My name is Marija and I've recently moved from Germany where I have been an English teacher in a private language school and Volkshochschule, and a private tutor. I am a passionate linguist who lives the languages. I teach all levels and prepare kids and young adults for exams and help them expand their knowledge. Languages are the most beautiful thing in the world and I always try to make language closer to the student, no need for pressure and stress, everything can be learned with little bit of patience and will :) I work with individuals and groups.

Paul-Antoine
Private French lessons (open to schoolchildren and those wishing to learn French)
Hello, My name is Paul-Antoine and I live in Amsterdam where I am a student. I am currently studying at the University of Amsterdam in the PPLE bachelor (Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics). From French parents, I followed all my education in the French system abroad and I speak French fluently. In these support courses which can be academic or simply an aid to the deepening of the language, I will bring my personal culture and my recent readings which will also allow the student to discover another facet of French literature. In addition, these courses are also open to those who simply want to learn French. If you would like more information on the learning methods that I will be offering, I invite you to contact me. Regards, Paul Anthony

Spanish classes. Basic, intermediate and advanced levels. Conversation and grammar, all ages
Me especializo en que el estudiantes logre mantener una conversacion fluida en español utilizando la hora de clase para mejorar pronunciacion y fluidez. A la vez se le brinda al estudiante una guia practica donde se le explicara la gramatica y podra hacer infinitos ejercicios practicos que le ayuden a mejorar su comprension y analisis de texto. Tambien trabajamos con imagenes, sonidos y videos para que el estudiante logre reconocer, interpretar por el mismo y mejorar su capacidad auditiva. En los niveles basicos e intermedios utilizo un sistema donde el estudiante pueda escuchar, copiar y repetir informacion similando el inicio de aprendizaje de su idioma natal. Asigno tareas despues de cada leccion e informo el progreso del estudiante mes a mes.I specialize in students being able to maintain a fluent conversation in Spanish using class time to improve pronunciation and fluency. At the same time, the student is given a practical guide where the grammar will be explained and they will be able to do infinite practical exercises that will help them improve their comprehension and text analysis. We also work with images, sounds and videos so that the student can recognize, interpret for himself and improve his hearing. In the basic and intermediate levels I use a system where the student can listen, copy and repeat information similar to the beginning of learning their native language. I assign homework after each lesson and report student progress month by month

***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
