Apprendre la langue anglaise et la culture anglo-saxonne
Bonjour, Diplômée d'une Licence de langues étrangères appliquées en anglais, allemand et chinois à l'Université Catholique de l'Ouest à Angers,je souhaite exercer auprès de personnes de niveau d'anglais débutant, et/ou intermédiaire de façon ludique et didactique des cours de conversation de langue anglaise.

Besoin de coup de pouce en NL, EN ou méthodologie?
Entre "Hallo" et "Hello", tu t'emmêles déjà les pinceaux ? Néerlandais ou anglais, tu fais un peu ce qu'il te plait ! Un planning pour tes examens, ça ne te sert à rien ! De toute façon, tu ne sais pas ce que tu veux faire ! La vie, c'est pas fair. --- > Besoin d'un coup de pouce en langues (néerlandais - anglais) ou en méthodologie de travail ? Mon nom est Anouchka. J'ai 35 ans. Après des études de langues, j'ai acquis de l'expérience notamment en RH. Mon projet aujourd'hui serait de concilier langues et développement professionnel. Je peux donc t'aider non seulement en langues mais aussi à postuler pour un stage, un job d'étudiant ... Je te propose des cours sur mesure en fonction de TES besoins. Les langues et moi: Petite déjà, j'adore mon cours de néerlandais de primaire. C'est ma première rencontre avec une langue étrangère et je me délecte à apprendre les noms des couleurs, des animaux ... En secondaire, je me hasarde à écrire mon TFE en néerlandais. C'est donc naturellement que je finis par choisir les langues comme sujet d'études supérieures à la fin desquelles j'obtiens mon diplôme de traduction en anglais et italien. Bien que je suis en Erasmus en Italie, le néerlandais revient déjà au galop : rencontre amoureuse d'un flamand et colocation avec 3 Anversois ! Et ça me sert bien ce néerlandais pour trouver du travail sur Bruxelles ! Je décide de mettre mes langues au service de mon métier et me lance dans des secteurs divers : IT, RH où j'acquière d'autres compétences. Ce qui m'amène à toi aujourd'hui : Quelques années et expériences plus tard, je décide de revenir à mes premières amours linguistiques. Je fais du soutien scolaire, passe l'agrégation, donne cours à des enfants ... Aujourd'hui, j'ai envie d'aider les jeunes comme toi qui peuvent avoir quelques difficultés dans : - l'apprentissage des langues - la méthode de travail - le choix d'étude (projet futur)

Cours particuliers d'anglais natif/English lessons NATIVE SPEAKER tous niveaux (Charleroi/Brussels)
J'étudie la langue anglaise et la littérature anglaise en Angleterre à l'université et serai bientôt graduée comme enseignante en Angleterre. Apprendre l'anglais ou l'améliorer avec une enseignante venant d'Angleterre est l'idéal; j'ai aussi accompli mes secondaires en Angleterre! Le prix que je demande n'est pas très élevé pour des cours efficaces. Je dispose de plusieurs manuels d'anglais pour débutant à confirmé. Je puis aussi donner des cours pour la littérature/ langue anglaise. Mes deux d'expériences en tant que professeur particulier en Angleterre m'ont apporté plusieurs acquis concernant les méthodes d'enseignement. J'ai appris à être patiente et à encourager d'avantage mes étudiants. N'hésitez pas à me contacter tant que je suis disponible car je voyage beaucoup. :-) Ma résidence est à Charleroi mais je peux très bien voyager jusqu'à Bruxelles (compter frais de transport).

English Conversation Course for Intermediate/Advanced Students
Hello! I am a Canadian English native speaker who has over 10 years of experience teaching English. I am new in Brussels so am looking for new students! I am hosting the English Conversation Course (of 5 students) where we talk about different subjects (i.e. politics, literature, economics, etc.) and the aim of the course is for you to learn new vocabs of various subjects and different expressions. The module of the course runs for 8 weeks. It will be held at my place in downtown once I have 5 students who are interested. The time would be on Tuesdays at 6:30pm tentatively. If you are interested, please let me know when it would be most suitable time for you to start your course. Please note that there would be home works given for each class that you would have to prepare. Thank you and looking forward meeting new faces soon! Kate

English, German tutoring. Learn in a creative way.
I tutor in English and German. My classes are perfect for beginners who have little to no knowledge, and who would like to raise their language skills to a conversational level, as well as students who struggle keeping up with their school assignments. Every class is tailored to the individual needs and interests of every student, you can decide what you would like to learn, and be in charge of your own pace. Additionally I keep every class interesting and creative depending on the individual interest of the student (For example, we can learn with movies and books you like) Language learning is only fun when it is done without pressure.

Creative Writing
I am a writer, translator and PhD in literature and arts. I believe that act of telling and especially doing it in writing is not only one of the essential ways of expressing onself but is also a conscious contribution to one's life&wellbeing. The way I am giving creative writing involves references to narrative theraphy as well, and is called bookperformance. It has several ways to adapt and apply the person who wants to discover the strength of act of reading, telling and writing; beauty and power of words when they are read out, thought, spoken out or written. I guide you in English, French or Turkish. And, the writing process could involve all the other languages that you want to or need to express yourselves.

Mandarin Chinese and English Tutoring to Expats in Brussels
I have studied Chinese since the age of 11, and lived for two years in China. There I studied intensive Mandarin Chinese courses at Chinese Universities in Beijing and Wuhan. Therefore, I am well aware of the struggles of learning Chinese. Not only am I now fluent in Chinese (HSK level 5), but I have also learnt how to most effectively learn Mandarin. I will make an individual plan with the student, teach pinyin, pronunciation, tones, characters, phrases, grammar, idioms, everyday language and much more. I will also share my best tips when studying Mandarin. I have extensive experience in teaching English to Chinese children ages 5-17. I was both a private tutor and teacher at local Chinese high schools when living in China. Therefore, I can assist in teaching English to expats living in Brussels
