Charlie
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.

English Development with Native Speaker (Pronunciation, ESL, Business, TOIEC/TOEFL/IELTS Prep)
I am a New Yorker living and teaching in Morocco for 2+ years. I am a relatable, experienced and professional English trainer. I'm based in Casablanca and offer training-packages in Casablanca, throughout the Mediterranean and the European Union. I provide Immersion Courses, American English adaptation/translation services, career-building tools and documents and have a niche for pronunciation correction and TOEIC Preparation. I teach general ESL (English as a Second Language), business and industry-specific English and all-purpose English too! This is also a communicative English class for developing speech. Here we will explore, vocabulary with nuances in meanings, synonyms, idioms, proverbs, some phrasal verb and prepositional verbs and all-around social English. The possibilities are endless for focusing on Public Speaking, Intonation and Voice Projection as well. This may be stimulated by interesting audios, short readers or videos. If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you. **NOTE: This class can also be offered and adjusted to accommodate multiple teenagers, adults or professionals as a group session, to make it more economical for you. It is advised that groups not exceed more than 5 persons per session. Charges apply to distances teacher must travel; especially, if out of standard office hours or on bank holidays!!

French Tutoring Class. For all levels and all situations, with a French native.
I offer lessons of French for all levels, to provide the students with personalised exercises and content, to match the level and the goals. The different area of the language will be engaged: speaking, listening, writing and reading. I am a native french speaker so the student will be subjected to a real french atmosphere, and with my previous experiences in teaching French, I know how to adapt the language while still remaining authentic. The class can be adapted to the special needs of the student: learning french for school or for the workplace, or just developing the language skills for informal settings.

Anne
English classes for students of all levels and ages!
My name is Anne, I am Russian, but have spent more than 10 years in England, where I also studied. I teach English to non-native students of all ages. I have been tutoring English for the last 4 years. I am really passionate about languages, and studying some (Spanish, Italian, and French) myself and about teaching English, to others. I teach using creative and new methods. I feel that it is important that each student, at whatever level of English, feels motivated and engages fully in the classes, I make it my aim to keep each class entertaining, as well as beneficial for the English level. My timetable is quite flexible, and, when I am on holiday, I can always keep up the lessons via webcam. I will gladly help study for any exams, or just help improve the level, fluency and grammar.

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 !
