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.

Ela
Russian Language For Foreigners (Turkish,Italian etc..
I am from Istanbul. I am 23 years old. I graduated from Russian Language and Literature in Istanbul University. My russian level is B2 in listening,writing and speaking. My turkish level is C2. My english level is B1. Especially i want to learn russian language to turkish people in their native language.So they will better understand grammer rules :) And i can make a discount for Turkish people.

Mariam
Moroccan Arabic (darija) tutor - learning darija, Moroccan dialect- grammar-speaking- writing
Hello, My name is Mariam, from Morocco. I majored in English studies and I was an English teacher for children and also a language and cultural facilitator with the peace corps, where I taught Moroccan Arabic to American volunteers and the Moroccan culture also. I have learned a lot on how to teach Moroccan Arabic to non-natives, with a lot of materials for different kind of learners. I can also help if you want to practice using standard Arabic. If you have any questions let me know, I would be glad to help.

Marcel
Dynamic Dutch courses with a smiling native speaker ;-)
I use several methods which are specially conceived to teach Dutch to people who have a different mother tongue. I really like to use methods out of the ordinary like role games or methods with which you learn while playing. All these adapted to the student's situation of course. As I learned myself a couple of other languages, it is easy for me to detect difficulties a student can encounter and adapt the way of learning. I can teach in English, French, German and Russian.

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.

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) 🇹🇷👉🏻 for English and Arabic Speakers
Merhaba 👋🏻 Hello, I'm Cemile. As a native Turkish speaker, I would be glad to help you to learn Turkish, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I give Turkish lessons to expats, students or Turkish lovers for several years. I love to make my students speak, since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehension. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you with whatever language goals you have! 📲 Feel free to contact me for questions and classes. مرحبا 👋🏻 أنا جميلة و لغتي الأم التركية. بإمكاني تعليم اللغة التركية للناطقين باللغة العربية أوالانجليزية لدي خبرة في تعليم اللغة التركية لعدة سنوات، طلابي من جنسيات و أعمار مختلفة في دروسنا سوف يتم التركيز على أساسيات اللغة من القواعد والمفردات والأهم طبعاً المحادثة إذا كانت لديك أية أسئلة أو استفسارات، فضلًا لا تتردد في التواصل معي

Learning Spanish in fun way with Native Teacher! Spanish from Spain and South America
Hello! I am Claudia from Peru and I grew up in Italy, I am a Spanish native teacher offering funny and useful Spanish Language lessons. I have experience of teaching Spanish in academies for 6 years. I have a bachelor's degree in Literature. No matter your language level, I will speak to you in Spanish from the beginning and help you express yourself and improve your pronunciation and vocabulary! My methodology focuses on oral expression, making you feel comfortable expressing yourself in Spanish, since speaking is the form of communication that we use the most, although it is hardly practiced in the classroom. Of course, we will also review the rest of the communication areas and we will pay special attention to the grammatical issues on which we have to work. I like to teach, focusing on the strengths of my students, giving them confidence to achieve their goals. You will naturally gain your speaking skills through classes with me, I have didactic materials but I focus on helping you improve listening and speaking in our conversations more. I love teaching not only the language but also the culture, we can do conversation about cinema, literature and music from Italy, and I can explain you the differences between Spanish from Spain and Spanish from Latin America. It would be my pleasure to teach all levels, beginners are very welcome! All kids and adults are welcome too!

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!

Beginner and intermediate Italian courses (A1-B1), learning the Italian language
This course is for beginners and intermediates, from level A1 to B1. I adapt it to the profile of each one after having assessed the faculties present and the points to be reinforced. The course is mainly focused on oral practice and listening comprehension of Italian, including the necessary theoretical points if necessary. Each lesson is built with the learner for a specific goal to achieve. I try to deliver accurate feedback at the end of each class. Feel free to contact me for more information.

French courses for students in school and students who would like to improve in the language.
French is one of the most influential languages in the world. Knowing how to speak, read and write it while understanding the significant accuracy of the words used is an asset that unfortunately very few master. My courses are based on the expectations of my client, the areas in which he wants to work will be put to work.

Anna
