    I'm a french native living in Amsterdam, with experience in teaching and translating.
    I'm a french native speaker, living in Amsterdam. I have experience in teaching and translating. I can help people from beginner to advanced. I really enjoy to teach french and can also learn about french culture! I adapt my course to the student's need. During the class I will mostly speak french, because I consider oral conversation a very important part of the class. If you feel the need to learn even more, I can also give homework like specific grammar exercices, and I can recommend to you some books or movies in french depending on your interests.

    French course by a native speaker : learn french through different approaches
    The purpose of this class is to learn french through the french culture and oral conversation mostly. There will be different approaches to learning french : activities related to the french culture (cooking crêpes,...) a more conventional method of learning (for grammar for example, if needed), oral conversation (about actuality, the culture, art,...), and possibly the study of books, texts, movies in french. During the class I will mostly speak french, and I consider oral conversation a very important part of the class. If you feel the need to learn even more, I will also give homework such as specific grammar exercises, and I will recommend to you some books to read in french or movies to watch depending on your interests.

    Learn French in Amsterdam (Levels A1 - C1), private and group
    I can offer a learning experience (content and pace) that is tailored to your needs - school work, grammar, preparation for DELF and DALF tests or just to have conversations. We can follow our lessons in a relaxed atmosphere while enjoying the various joys of learning a language. It is not just about learning conjugations by heart!

    Learn french with a native speaker - adapted to all levels
    Hello, I am a french graphic design student giving flexible french lessons to all levels and all goals! I have a background in art and literature and therefor would be interested into taking the lessons to another context than the academic one. I already have a previous experience in teaching french and would be pleased again to share my culture and language. I can give adapted lessons from complete beginners to advanced ones! According to the student's wishes the lessons can be focused on the preferred aspects (conversation, vocabulary, grammar, writing, formal writing, etc.)

    Celie
    Learn French with a native speaker, professional teacher graduated from The Sorbonne
    My belief is that each student is different and requires a tailor made lesson to meet that student’s needs and goals. Every class is personalised for your own profile and is adapted as needed. I give priority to conversation, convinced that even from the very first day, one can start to communicate in the new language and thus gain confidence to go on. I base my courses on the four essential competencies: speaking, listening, writing and reading, always focusing on your personal goals and motivation. I progressively integrate phonetics, grammar, conjugation, vocabulary in the courses which always include practical exercises. You will also learn a lot about the culture as it is deeply linked to the language. The pedagogic materials I choose are mostly created for native speakers : texts from literature, newspapers, radio podcasts, videos, songs.... Indeed, I am convinced that the learning process has to tackle « real subjects », as languages are alive and constantly changing. My main challenge is to help the learners to be able to « think » in the second language. The debate is the heart of my classroom, but always in a playful way, through many role games — for me learning a language is first and foremost a great joy !

For English, History and Social Science I can tutor in Advanced level classes For French I can tutor in beginner and intermediate level classes.

    Hello. I'm a 23 years old native French speaker who lived all my life in France before moving to Amsterdam few months ago. While I'm a musician, I always loved languages, try to understand how they work, where the words come from, etc. We can meet to talk, maybe have a drink, to improve your french. I can explain some stuff, tell you about your mistakes, teach you some expressions.

    Marcel
    Learning french language through different cultural approaches
    This class aims to teach french language through different forms of study rather than a classic academic approach to language learning. For example those methods can be expressed in oral conversations, study of texts, art pieces, or movies in french, and of course more conventional teaching. I believe that a language is learnt better in it's cultural context and applications rather than though a decontextualized approach. If you are interested don't hesitate to ask any question.

    French lessons - Achieve your goals the efficient way!
    Hi! My name is Bart, I am 31 years old, live in Amsterdam and I'm a French language teacher. I passed the DALF C1 exam, which is a high-level qualification in French language and I also studied French law at a French university. I have experience in teaching French since 2007. I can provide French lessons to students of all levels. How I teach: 1 - Your objective(s) At the start we will discuss your objectives and discover in which area(s) you need help the most. This way I can efficiently give you the help that you need. Your objectives could be for example preparation for exams at school, DELF/DALF exams or to improve your French for other reasons. 2 - Open communication I have an open way of teaching in which I encourage students to keep telling me what their difficulties are or where they would like to improve. In my experience this saves a lot of time and also makes the lessons more fun. 3 - Simplify instead of complicate I am good at listening and understanding why students are having difficulties with certain issues. This way I can simplify the issue and teach you French in an easy and understandable way. 4 - Involved I am involved with my students' French language objectives and look will find out what is the best way for you to improve your French.

    Private lessons of French (Français langue étrangère)
    I am a former student of the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris, and propose private lessons of French for both entry and advanced levels. These gradual and comprehensive lessons have a twofold purpose : make you feel comfortable with French practice (expression and understanding) and make you progressively independent in your use of the language.
