    German (also for foreigners) as tutoring and language practice

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    German: even if it is your mother tongue, some rules have to be learned first. But it's worth it, because your language becomes richer and you can express yourself better and better.

    If German is your foreign language, I will also help you to get to know and internalize the various rules.

    In both cases, we start by looking at where you stand, where you have some catching up to do and where I see the focus. We'll talk a lot, because language practice is the best way to learn. I attach great importance to correct pronunciation, which is especially important for foreigners / non-native speakers.
    We can vary the topics so that you can learn something besides the language.

    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Welcome to my profile!
    It's great that you (optionally you) are interested in one of my courses! Now I would like to give you a first impression of who you are dealing with.
    I have lived in Berlin for many years, but when I was 51 I also lived abroad.

    From childhood I have been fascinated by other countries and cultures and since then I have been exploring them through studies and practice (travel, private and business contacts). I am happy if I can bring you closer to a country, a people or a region of your choice. We first determine what, how and how much you would most like to learn, then I set up the concept and off you go. Be it you want to deepen or follow up on a school subject, would like to prepare for a trip or an assignment abroad or are simply curious to learn more about a country that you have never heard of or that you actually believed to know everything.

    The German language also inspires me in its expressiveness, richness and diversity. Did you know that we can still understand German writings from the Middle Ages even today? Even some of our dialects have made it into written language and deserve to be used and represented.

    Questions are always welcome at this point and also in class! Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Experience / Qualifications

    Lecturer for many years, including at the Berlin Administrative Academy, on cruise ships and recently also with video cameras
    German - very good school grades and professional writing practice in your main job
    The diversity of the world is reflected in its states and peoples. Anyone who meets their representatives, for example while traveling, in the context of business contacts or as an emigrant, will sooner or later come across differences in behavior and experience. My course helps to prepare oneself to cushion the "culture shock" and to get along successfully with the other culture (the people or society or their individual members) in the long term. Through my many trips and professional practice, I was able to gain a lot of experience here, which I round off with my study knowledge and gladly pass on. The focus areas are Europe and Asia, but I can also mediate other regions.

    Creative tutoring for French and German
    Does French grammar give you a headache with all its exceptions or are you simply not able to get enough enthusiasm for reading and writing German classics and do you feel that you have missed something important in class? Then I would like to help you. :) As a bilingual, word and language enthusiastic actress and student of theater and film studies, my goal is that you rediscover your fun in reading and writing and learn how to express yourself creatively on paper and thereby improve your school grades in a playful way. I also like to practice reading aloud with you, reciting poems, giving lectures (including language and postural exercises, if you want) and I give you tools to convey your thoughts to your classmates and teachers with confidence and clarity.

    French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
    French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

    Private lessons for German - English - French
    The student informs me of the concepts he wishes to see or review in French, German and / or English; I adapt and agree to give him a course of the best possible quality, as well as to provide him with exercises and advice adapted to his needs. I have completed my Bachelor in Multilingual Communication (Faculty of Translation and Interpretation of the University of Geneva) and am available to help other students and to share my knowledge with them. I started learning German over 15 years ago and have also completed numerous language stays in Germany, including a semester as an au pair with daily language lessons and an Erasmus semester as part of of my Bachelor. Furthermore, I have been speaking German daily in my private life for over two years now. As for English, I started learning it over 10 years ago; I also did a semester in Liverpool with daily lessons in a language school and have continued to practice it ever since, both personally and at university. I have obtained an official certificate attesting to my level of German (telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule), as well as a certificate attesting to my level of English (Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English - C1). Regarding French, it is my mother tongue and I am improving it day by day, particularly as part of my training as a translator at the University of Geneva. Ps: During the lockdown linked to Covid-19, I continued to give online lessons (via Skype); these classes went very well and were just as effective as the in-person classes. Given the current circumstances and because I no longer live in Geneva, I offer online courses (via Skype and with the help of other IT tools). I look forward to helping you in your learning process and passing on my passion for languages to you through our meetings! We look forward to meeting you soon! Elodie

    Learn German by SKYPE (students or adults)
    Having studied literature in Germany for two years, I offer a German course for all levels. I can support a student who is just starting out in learning this beautiful and complex language. I am also able to help more advanced students in the mastery of the language and to allow them to discover the Germanic culture. Learning this language for eleven years, I am able to transmit a method that is both interesting and rigorous. I organize my lessons in a fun way, working on grammar but also texts, videos to better understand the German-speaking culture. I can also help with the preparation of the German Baccalaureate exams.

    Online course for German as a foreign language with all material included
    In my one-to-one online courses, you will find a room just for yourself, where you will be coached within a German speaking setting. Each lesson depends on your needs and aims, which may be to improve in a specific linguistic feature as pronunciation, grammar, spelling or vocabulary. Or it may be to work on a specific goal, e.g. an official language exam, finding work in the German speaking countries or bureaucratic issues. Or it can just be conversation in order to gain fluency. In our class I will also point out what you can do during the week in order to further improve your German language skills and get closer to your goals and I will hand out to you the study material you need.

    Chinese turor for Chinese/ Mandarin (simplified and traditional )
    Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.

    British and American Culture and Literature, Minority Literatures
    Literature in English language is a very broad term. The biggest number of popular English language texts comes from the USA and the UK, however, there are many other places where English is spoken as a native language and interesting texts are produced. You can learn with me the following subjects: 1. American literature (including native American literature). 2. British literature (including Welsh and Scottish literature). 3. Selected areas of literature in English from Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.

    Learn the Persian language (Farsi) easily in Lyon in a friendly and friendly atmosphere

All levels from A1.1 to the end C2. Personally I prefer to apply the action method in my classes instead of learning grammar in an explicit way. Each learner normally has his own goals and tastes. It is up to the teacher to pursue an approach that best suits your needs. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
