French as a Foreign Language Course for Adults - learn French culture - conversation - pronunciation / French for foreigners

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Journalist in the written press for 20 years and today trainer in French as a Foreign Language, I offer French courses for foreign adults. I am also a volunteer trainer in a socio-linguistic workshop for migrants since 2018 for Médecins du Monde in Toulouse. I created my French training company and I am a self-entrepreneur. I live in Toulouse and I can move around Toulouse and the Gers.

After a first assessment which will allow us to define your needs, we will improve your knowledge of the French language and the fluidity of your conversations in French. My goal is to make your French perfectly understandable and to give you back your daily autonomy thanks to the practice of this language. I will provide you with suitable written and audio material.

We will talk a lot and in a good mood! I also speak English, Italian and Spanish when needed. I can come to your workplace during your breaks or to your home. I also offer webcam lessons.
I can also help you proofread and correct your manuscripts, internship reports, dissertations, theses as well as the drafting of your administrative or professional documents.

About Me

I give French lessons, on a voluntary basis, to foreign adults for Médecins du Monde by leading a socio-linguistic workshop. It is a group of migrants whose level of French is A1.1, A1 or A2.
I also teach French to foreign employees working in French companies. Their level varies from A1 to B2. I go to their workplace during their break time.

The teaching of French to children is more focused on academic support for students from CE1 to college.

I am patient and I try to make my lessons as fun as possible.

French lessons (grammar, literature, written and oral expression).
This course aims to give a better command and knowledge of the French language, its history and its literature, by adapting to the needs and desires of each one. The grammar modules will make it possible to fix the functioning of the language, and will consist of lessons and application exercises. In terms of language learning, we will work on both written and oral expression. We will also discuss pages of French literature, in order to sketch their history and make the exercise of text commentary more accessible.

Student gives private lessons in French-English-methodology
As a bilingual French English student, having lived in the United States for two years, and having completed a preparatory class for the grandes écoles of higher studies, I propose myself as a teacher to teach any type of student.

Candice
Private lessons of French as a foreign language for all levels
I offer French as a foreign language courses for all levels. French is my mother tongue, and, as a translator, my daily working language. My methodology is based mainly, but not only, on the learning of dialogues in French, which will allow the student, gradually, to acquire vocabulary, to understand the grammar and to fix the linguistic structures in his head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in French more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. I also adapt to the specific requests of pupils or students. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)

Phillip
Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you

Olivia
French Language for Business, learn to speak and act appropriately in business settings
Bonjour, my name is Olivia and I have a Master in teaching French language as well as the certification for the IB program (bilingual exam). Experienced in educating French to company professionals working in- or with French companies. After having lived for 18 years in Asia and taught all these different nationalities, I developed an inspiring and interactive method to teach French language linked with the French culture; food, people, art, fashion. I guess language is the first step but the "Etiquette" is what makes you more French in being successful in business settings. With me, you will learn French at your pace, according to your needs and your motivation.

I teach French to almost all ages, from 10 to 18 years old. Also guiding, reading and correcting more extensive final projects (Dutch and French).
