    English - conversational English and practicing everyday speech

    A passionate lover of the English culture and lifestyle, I have acquired official certification equivalent to Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE) level, corresponding to level C2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (the highest level possible). After living in the United States for two years, I am currently pursuing a double major Anglais/Etudes Internationales at the Sorbonne University in Paris.

    My experience in France has taught me that due to the specific nature of the English language and the limited time to practice it, there is an issue when it comes to conversational English. This is what my lessons will focus on - everyday conversational English, correction of accent, learning about stress and sentence dynamics which help you to sound more natural and understanding of phonology and the IPA transcription.

    If you are shy when it comes to expressing yourself in front of others; if you find yourself lacking the "proper" expressions or tools to engage in everyday conversations; or if you just want to learn what does "hitting the books", "to lose your touch", or to "pitch in" mean - this class is probably for you. And I promise you we'll have a lot of fun while learning!

    Note: This class focuses mainly on American English.

    About Me

    My name is Joanna. Of Bulgarian origin, I have spent most of my time traveling around the world and getting to know different cultures and people. This is how I met my husband (who is an American) in the United States two years ago, and this is exactly why I chose France to further pursue my studies.

    For me, English is something more than a language. Nowadays it has become a gate to an ever-growing global community which encompasses people from all nations. You literally hear it everywhere you go. Funny enough, the first language a French native and a German native would probably pick in order to speak to one another... you guessed it, it's usually English! I find that fascinating.

    But in a world where everyone speaks English - how many people can say they really know English? With an extremely rich vocabulary, complicated grammar and pronunciation that makes no sense to most foreign speakers, it is no wonder that today most of us find themselves either speaking "broken English" or completely shut down and fail to interact, even though we have all the tools necessary.

    This is exactly why I chose to teach English the way I will - by conversing about popular cultural topics, exchanging cultural differences and learning idioms, learning everyday expressions while focusing on intonation, accent and a little bit of grammar and phonology.

    Education

The methods I use are built on both the mind logic and the creative part. I strive for that the children will experience joy, learning and feeling that they can do it. For me, all of this starts with their feeling safe and trust me. So in the start, I will emphasize the importance of getting to know each other. What will I need from you: 1.
