I know you speak it. I WILL FIX IT! West Coast (California) English. We walk, we talk, I correct! FUN! Learn by playing !

Hello! If you can understand this message without having to translate then you are ready for my help! I am from California, and have been living here in Brussels since 2012. I am 39 years old. I speak West Coast (California) English. It's the English you hear in your favorite California movies. I love to help friends who already speak "european street English" while HAVING FUN! Did you know that 70% of learning a language is learned OUTSIDE of a classroom setting? So I propose we go to the park, we cook together, we go on a bike ride, we draw, we play. And of course we will talk a lot. When I hear an error I will correct you in a fun way, writing things for you, with FUN AND REAL examples, with drawings, ALWAYS STAYING 100% in English. That's correct, I will only speak English to you, because as you and I both know, you already speak English, and you have understood everything (or maybe 70%) of everything I just wrote. What you want is to improve or perfect your spoken English (we can work on writing, too). Immersion and fun, West Coast Style. And my university degree? Yes, I have two of them, in Languages and Literatures, and I speak 4 fully fluent languages, but for now I want you to learn by HAVING FUN! My friends can tell you how fun it is to learn with me. HOPE WE GET TO PLAY TOGETHER SOON! You can do it! Groups ok.

Extra information

Iris
School Support (French / English / History course)
Teacher graduated from the French National Education, having worked for seven years in high school, I propose sessions of academic support mainly in these three disciplines: French, English and History. These courses can be given on a regular basis or punctually according to your needs. Very accustomed to children and teenagers, during my teaching years I developed various methods to motivate discouraged students and help them achieve their goals.

Rebecca
Conversational English classes for adults and students
If you need to improve your conversational English skill, you got the right person! I have worked in multi international firms for the past 35 years in Belgium and Hong Kong and English is my first working language. I have also given private lessons to both students and adults in the past.

Emily
Fluent in English! Lessons with Cambridge certified (CELTA) London born teacher
Would you like help with your English? Do you have an exam you need to take? Would you like some conversational practice? Or perhaps you want some help with school classes? Whatever the area you would like help with, whether it's fluency, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, or just feeling more confident in the language - I am here to help! I am an English born, CELTA certified, experienced language teacher who can help you prepare for exams, improve your accent and language knowledge, and gain more confidence in any of the skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing). I have taught classes and also individuals, and can design a course of lessons for you or help you with material you already have. I like to use authentic materials (newspaper articles, blog posts, youtube videos, radio shows) as well as making my own activities and adapting some from coursebooks. My lessons are student-centred, so there is an emphasis on the student doing the talking rather than me giving a lot of lectures about grammar points!

Luca
Student in economics at ULB in Brussels gives courses to help you learn Italian, my mother tongue.
My name is Luca and I obtained my postgraduate degree in economics and business management from the Catholic University of Milan. Now, I am doing a master's degree in Business Economics at ULB in Brussels. I am ready to give lessons in my mother tongue, Italian, but also French and English. I have been giving lessons for 3 years. I spent 4 months at EM Normandie business school in Le Havre, France, where I took several management and finance courses entirely in French. This experience has considerably strengthened my knowledge and language skills: I am currently a C1 level in French (OLS Erasmus certificate) and B2 + in English (Ielts certificate). I am very patient and attentive to details, you will never feel judged, the important thing is to understand and achieve the goal! Do not hesitate to write to me for more information! The privileged educational medium remains online. But don't worry, the distance has never made my lessons more boring or less effective, on the contrary, they have often made them even more comfortable thanks to new applications and new ways of giving lessons via telematics, and in obviously making them even safer for everyone. Goodbye !

English courses (all levels) given by a master's student in journalism
I am studying for a master's degree in journalism and communication at IHECS. I have always practiced English, and I had many opportunities to improve it during my year of volunteering in Anglo-Saxon countries such as New Zealand or Australia. I now have several years of experience to my credit; During this troubled period, I decided to put my skills at the service of the greatest number. My classes are aimed at young and old alike, ranging from the basics of Shakespeare's language to its many little subtleties. Great traveler, New Zealand at heart, I have many years of practice behind me and I am inclined to share them!

Julia
Tailor made English lessons by certified TEFL teacher
My name is Julia and I am a qualified TEFL teacher (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) with a Master's degree in English linguistics. I offer English courses for all levels. My background in linguistics provides me with a thorough knowledge of English grammar and I therefore have an understanding of the problems students face when learning English. Having lived and worked in the United States, I know what it is like to be immersed in an English speaking environment, therefore can help my students improve their fluency as well as develop the perfect accent! I can also give tailor made classes to working professionals, PhD students, who would like to focus on their academic English (EAP=English for Academic Purposes), essay writing and presentations skills. After the very first meeting, I try my best to adopt the lessons to the needs and goals of my students. I don’t believe anyone can be a ‘bad language learner’, rather that different techniques might work for each of us. My goal is to help students discover what works for them. For those who are afraid of grammar and get confused easily, I'll give some easy tools so you can improve effortlessly. If being shy stops you from speaking, do not worry, as by the end of our lessons you will gain the confidence needed. Generally, I only use English during classes, but for lower levels I can provide explanations also in Hungarian, in German or in French.
