For motivated students who want to learn French with a smile ;-)

I like to use different methods to teach French to students. It can be through songs, drama, role play or videos. I also very often use situations close to the student's experience, such as describing places they have been or talking about what they have experienced. At the same time, I teach the grammar rules to the student. I now live in regions where French has been spoken for over 30 years. Because I have learned French myself (and I am still learning other languages), I can easily put myself in a student's shoes. I can teach in French, Dutch, English, German and Russian.

About Me

Hello, my name is Marcel, I am Dutch and I love languages. I really enjoy teaching languages or practicing them either by speaking, reading or writing. I have lived in several different European countries and have met a lot of different people with different accents. I learned French in France, but now I've been living in Brussels for 20 years. Today I speak French fluently, but it didn't happen overnight, so I know the difficulties of learning another language. I am married and a father of two children (14 and 11) whom I educate in Dutch. As they grow up in a predominantly French-speaking environment, I see and work with them the problems they encounter. I also take Russian lessons (so I know what it's like to be a student). I can teach in French, English, German, Russian and of course in Dutch :-) Looking forward to meeting you!

Education

I studied in the Netherlands where I lived until I had the of 23. I did the equivalent of a graduate in tourism there - for two years I have been training as a coach.

Experience / Qualifications

30 years of experience learning and speaking other languages - trying to improve them. 10 years of experience as a language teacher

After a few lessons I can only recommend him. Learning with Marcel is fun and effective.
Very nice first lesson! :)
Reactie na de eerste les voor een leerling die aangaf echt een hekel aan (het leren van) de Franse taal te hebben: 'Wow, dit was echt een leuke les!'
Prof au top qui s'adapte à votre niveau et à vos besoins!
Un prof au top: patient, créatif, disponible et sympathique! Sait parfaitement s'adapter à l'élève et construire un programme sur la longue durée. Je ne peux que recommander!
...
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.

Français, Portuguese, English, high school test preparations.
Hello, Bonjour, Bom dia ; ) the aim of this class is to respond to the student's needs either in the French, English or Portuguese language. I help more specifically highschool students to prepare their homeworks, tests and exams. My goal is to keep students motivated and proud when observing their progress in this hard process of learning a new language. Adapting myself to the level of the student, I guarantee a funny and motivational way to work and study French, Portuguese or English. Last year I was an ELS Bachelor student at University of Maastricht, I had all my Scholar education in French and English (coming from a European School and surrounded by a very international atmosphere). My other native language is Portuguese as it is my nationality. And graduated my highschool diploma in French and English. This year I am studying law in Brussels (due to the actual circumstances) The lessons can be given in French, English or Portuguese. Hoping to see you soon ; ) A bientôt/até logo ! Claudia

Serdane
French as a foreign language course for teenagers and adults.
My name is Serdane and I offer French as a foreign language classes for teenagers and adults. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Languages are my passion, and I am always happy to share this passion with others. Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority, give confidence to the student: the French is within the reach of all! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can continue his career independently. My rate includes full support (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). Looking forward to reading you.
