    French for Beginner Native English and/or Spanish Speakers

    Language learning is a highly subjective terrain and I believe there is a perfect way for each person to learn a new language in function of several factors such as their mother tongue, lifestyle, hobbies, etc. Following this ideology I aim to provide customized classes based on the student's individual profile and inclinations, for example, we read if you like to read, we talk if that's your comfort zone, I can assign movies as homework for film buffs, and so on.

    About Me

    Hello! My name is Alina. I"m currently based in Brussels independently training myself as a dancer. Officially I study in Business Administration at KU Leuven and I'm in my last year. My daily practices include movement with a focus on dance, swimming, biking, reading, and drawing. These days I also try to play a little bit of music before going to bed. These are some of my favorite practices for the spirit. I learnt French a year and a half ago and also Spanish, but the latter could use a lot more practice.

    Education

    Bachelor of Business Administration - KU Leuven Campus Brussels (currently in my last year).
    High School diploma - Indian School Muscat, Muscat, Oman (completed in 2015)

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have experience as a yoga teacher and a French & English teacher. I am very adaptable to the different needs of different students and different mother tongues.
    Yoga is an often misunderstood and misapplied practice. Its universe is vast and I do not claim to comprehend it fully. Personally it is a practice for me to calm myself down and reward my body when agonised. The class will be structured around the student. Flexibility and strength are not requirements but benefits of a regular, dedicated, and committed practice. Depending on the student and the day the class may focus on holding poses, or sequencing them. This class will be useful to both myself and the student to learn more about our anatomy, as well as our nature. Yoga has been a part of my life since its beginning. I was born in India and studied in an Indian school where it was a regular practice for students. I look forward to a strong personal connection with my student where we take it easy or go crazy as the day calls. I like to explain things to people in a language they and their body understand. Yoga is not something that can be scheduled for 2 hours and forgotten about for the rest of the 22 hours. Eventually I foresee long term changes in the student's lifestyle. For example, what you eat during the day will affect greatly your practice in the night. All in all, my class will take an organic and personal system.
    The class will adapt specifically to the student based on the his/her mother tongue. I like to make relations with the student's natural response in his/her mother tongue and start from there on how to translate and transform that into the goal language. In this regard French, Spanish, and Hindi/Urdu speakers will be most benefited. My approach will mainly be reading and conversation - the two most important tools, as well as tests in our daily life. My propositions and ways to proceed will be organic and customized case by case.

    Assert yourself by the work of voice and speaking skills / Brussels
    The current professional world pushes us to always look valiant and efficient. But the voice can suddenly fail us and we hear screaming, inside us: "I'll never get there, I'm not up to it!" These silent cries block our expression and force us to remain spectators. of those who arrive there: to speak, to master their voice, their body, their speech ... How would it be otherwise, when we never learned these techniques and did not train? Public speaking has, for many of us, more naturalness. Today, and we can rejoice, oral expression is up to date in our Western societies. The work that this effort requires is known and it is important to be able to share its vulnerabilities with someone you trust, who will make you rediscover the pleasure behind fear! My specificity as a teacher? I transmit an accompaniment adapted to each person, resulting from my theatrical practice, vocal and my constant research on the language. My teaching experiences led me to be attentive to the problems related to the speech of women, particularly spoiled in terms of cultural obstacles! Others may also be happy to experiment with me a different approach, departing from the usual male injunctions. My goal is to find the singularity of each voice, which is that of each being. The solutions that you will put in place to make you feel more comfortable will emerge from you, your work guided with kindness and involvement. Want to try this joyous adventure? Welcome !

    Give French / FLE lessons in Ixelles or at home
    Hello everyone, I. My French / FLE course: I first seek to identify the needs of the student but also the requirements of his Professor if necessary, or requests related to a particular professional situation. It is from this inventory that I build my course. My teaching method aims for a clear understanding of the rules, (transmissive model) and instructions, and their constant recall. My explanations are always clear and structured and are ideally made with the words of the students, rather than with technical terms. Clear explanations, certain guidelines for orienting oneself in case of difficulties, taking a few notes, repetition - in a fun way if possible -, constant practice of exercises, recurring questions that I ask to check that the material is acquired, will ensure lasting success without cutting corners. Thus grammar, for example, becomes much less arid mental gymnastics than it seems. On the contrary!

    Johnathan
    Español, Espagnol, Spanish for all ages and all levels
    ¡Hola! Seguramente estas pensando qué difícil puede ser aprender un nuevo idioma. En cierta medida lo es, ya que requiere constancia. Pero si a esa constancia le añadimos un método divertido y ameno, la dificultad de aprender el español se ve reducida. Porque nunca es tarde para nuevos aprendizajes y nunca es pronto para empezar, mis cursos se adaptan a todas las edades (si bien es cierto que al ser online, los niños pequeños quedan fuera de esta modalidad). Mi nombre es Johnathan y el español es mi lengua materna. Nací en Colombia y vivo en España desde el 2002. Soy psicólogo especializado en área de la educación y profesor de español desde el 2015. Poseo una amplia experiencia tanto con niños, adolescentes, adultos, como con personas con necesidades especiales. El método que suelo utilizar, es un método adaptado a las necesidades de cada persona. Muchas personas quieren aprender vocabulario y expresiones para poder viajar, así que por ejemplo, en este caso realizamos muchos roleplayings de situaciones que podrían pasar durante un viaje. Dispongo de material educativo para preparar las certificaciones del Instituto Cervantes, en sus diferentes niveles (A2, B1, B2 y C1). Me gusta fomentar el aprendizaje del español con sus variaciones como el español de Colombia, el de España y otros paises hispanos. Soy bastante cercano y me gusta que las clases sean divertidas, con toques de humor que aumenten la motivación por aprender. Así que anímate a contactarme y a empezar la aventura de un nuevo idioma. Mi lema es: "enseñar a aprender, es hacer que el alumno aprenda a aprender" ------------------------------- Hey, hey, hey, hey! Surely you're thinking how difficult it can be to learn a new language. To some extent it's, because it requires constancy. But if we add a fun and enjoyable method to this constancy, the difficulty of learning Spanish is reduced. Because it's never too late for new learning and it's never too early to start, my courses adapt to all ages (although it's true that being online, young children are left out of this mode). My name is Johnathan and Spanish is my mother tongue. I was born in Colombia and live in Spain since 2002. I am a psychologist specializing in the field of education and Spanish teacher since 2015. I have extensive experience with children, adolescents, adults, and people with special needs. The method I use is a method adapted to the needs of each person. Many people want to learn vocabulary and expressions in order to travel, so for example, in this case we do many role playings of situations that could happen during a trip. I have educational material to prepare Cervantes Institute certifications at different levels (A2, B1, B2 and C1). I like to encourage the learning of Spanish with its variations like Spanish from Colombia, Spain and other Hispanic countries. I am quite close and I like the classes to be fun, with touches of humor that increase the motivation to learn. So encourage yourself to contact me and start the adventure of a new language. My motto is: "teach to learn, is to make the student learn to learn" -------------------------------- Salut, tout le monde ! Vous devez vous demander combien il peut être difficile d’apprendre une nouvelle langue. Dans une certaine mesure, elle l’est, car elle exige de la constance. Mais si nous ajoutons à cette constance une méthode amusante, la difficulté d’apprendre l’espagnol est réduite. Parce qu’il n’est jamais trop tard pour de nouveaux apprentissages et qu’il n’est jamais trop tôt pour commencer, mes cours s’adaptent à tous les âges (bien qu’étant en ligne, les enfants en bas âge sont exclus). Je m’appelle Johnathan et l’espagnol est ma langue maternelle. Je suis né en Colombie et je vis en Espagne depuis 2002. Je suis psychologue spécialisé dans l’éducation et professeur d’espagnol depuis 2015. J’ai une longue expérience des enfants, des adolescents, des adultes et des personnes ayant des besoins spéciaux. La méthode que j’utilise habituellement est une méthode adaptée aux besoins de chaque personne. Beaucoup de gens veulent apprendre le vocabulaire et les expressions pour pouvoir voyager, donc dans ce cas, par exemple, nous faisons beaucoup de role playings de situations qui pourraient se produire pendant un voyage. Je dispose de matériel éducatif pour préparer les certifications de l’Institut Cervantes, à ses différents niveaux (A2, B1, B2 et C1). J’aime encourager l’apprentissage de l’espagnol avec ses variations comme l’espagnol de Colombie, celui d’Espagne et d’autres pays hispaniques. Je suis assez proche et j’aime que les cours soient amusants, avec des notes d’humour qui augmentent la motivation d’apprendre. Alors prenez contact avec moi et commencez l’aventure d’une nouvelle langue. Ma devise est "apprendre à apprendre, c’est faire apprendre à l’élève"

    Habib
    English for business/conversation/presentations/writing
    I'm an experienced English teacher and communications professional. I've also worked extensively in journalism, so can provide guidance on all means of communication. I have a British accent - London to be precise! However, I am familiar with the nuances of other accents and spelling differences. I have a lot of experience in helping newcomers to the British accent understand the subtle pronunciation differences that will make it far easier for you to understand. I've lived in the UK, Spain, Brazil and now Belgium and love discussing other cultures, societies and environments. It's really for fulfilling for me to incorporate all of this into my lessons and watch students progress over time. I prefer giving conversational lessons and only guiding students on points of grammar they don't understand (as the grammar all starts to make sense when you get the rhythm and vocabulary first!). My lessons incorporate video and other listening and interactive activities.
