    French as a Second Language taught at GCSE or A Level level

    This class is for anyone interested in learning French from scratch or improving their current level. My aim is to provide my students with a strong foundation of the French language (grammar and vocabulary) but also a flavour of French culture. I assign homework every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. I tailor the lesson and homework content and the method of teaching to the student to make sure everyone has the chance to learn at their own pace. Ultimately though, I want my students to be able to comfortably chat in French and develop a love of this beautiful language.

    About Me

    - The value of learning a new language cannot be overstated. I know this from personal experience since I can speak, write and read fluently in four languages and I love to be able to communicate with people in their native language. It is because I know how amazing and transformative speaking several languages can be that I want to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with anyone open to learning a new language.
    - I am a strong believer that tailoring the content of a lesson is to the students' needs makes the learning process faster, more engaging and more fun. At the same time, learning a new language requires practice and discipline, which is why I assign homework that will help students improve their linguistic knowledge and abilities. Homework can take many forms from filling out activity sheets to watching short videos to be then discussed during lessons. Lastly, I recognise that learning a new language can be a challenge which is why patience on both my side, as the teacher, and on the students' side is necessary. I will always cheer my students on even when things might get difficult and only ask that my students be willing and eager to go through this process with me.

    Education

    I am originally from Romania where I attended a German school, German 'Goethe' Kollegium Bucharest. This is where I learnt German intensively from the age of seven onwards. My family and I moved to the UK in 2014 and I attended secondary school and college (high school) in England. I am now a student at Amsterdam University College (a Liberal art programme created by the Uva and the VU), where I want to major in the Social Sciences with a focus on Psychology.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have completed my GCSEs in French and German while in England and have received an A* for both exams. I did my French A Level in high school and have achieved an A.

    Celie
    Learn French with a native speaker, professional teacher graduated from The Sorbonne
    My belief is that each student is different and requires a tailor made lesson to meet that student’s needs and goals. Every class is personalised for your own profile and is adapted as needed. I give priority to conversation, convinced that even from the very first day, one can start to communicate in the new language and thus gain confidence to go on. I base my courses on the four essential competencies: speaking, listening, writing and reading, always focusing on your personal goals and motivation. I progressively integrate phonetics, grammar, conjugation, vocabulary in the courses which always include practical exercises. You will also learn a lot about the culture as it is deeply linked to the language. The pedagogic materials I choose are mostly created for native speakers : texts from literature, newspapers, radio podcasts, videos, songs.... Indeed, I am convinced that the learning process has to tackle « real subjects », as languages are alive and constantly changing. My main challenge is to help the learners to be able to « think » in the second language. The debate is the heart of my classroom, but always in a playful way, through many role games — for me learning a language is first and foremost a great joy !

    Charlie
    French course by a native speaker : learn french through different approaches
    The purpose of this class is to learn french through the french culture and oral conversation mostly. There will be different approaches to learning french : activities related to the french culture (cooking crêpes,...) a more conventional method of learning (for grammar for example, if needed), oral conversation (about actuality, the culture, art,...), and possibly the study of books, texts, movies in french. During the class I will mostly speak french, and I consider oral conversation a very important part of the class. If you feel the need to learn even more, I will also give homework such as specific grammar exercises, and I will recommend to you some books to read in french or movies to watch depending on your interests.

    Hi! My name is Bart, I am 31 years old, live in Amsterdam and I'm a French language teacher. I passed the DALF C1 exam, which is a high-level qualification in French language and I also studied French law at a French university. I have experience in teaching French since 2007. I can provide French lessons to students of all levels. How I teach: 1 - Your objective(s) At the start we will discuss your objectives and discover in which area(s) you need help the most. This way I can efficiently give you the help that you need. Your objectives could be for example preparation for exams at school, DELF/DALF exams or to improve your French for other reasons. 2 - Open communication I have an open way of teaching in which I encourage students to keep telling me what their difficulties are or where they would like to improve. In my experience this saves a lot of time and also makes the lessons more fun. 3 - Simplify instead of complicate I am good at listening and understanding why students are having difficulties with certain issues. This way I can simplify the issue and teach you French in an easy and understandable way. 4 - Involved I am involved with my students' French language objectives and look will find out what is the best way for you to improve your French.

    Learning french language through different cultural approaches
    This class aims to teach french language through different forms of study rather than a classic academic approach to language learning. For example those methods can be expressed in oral conversations, study of texts, art pieces, or movies in french, and of course more conventional teaching. I believe that a language is learnt better in it's cultural context and applications rather than though a decontextualized approach. If you are interested don't hesitate to ask any question.

    Private lessons of French (Français langue étrangère)
    I am a former student of the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris, and propose private lessons of French for both entry and advanced levels. These gradual and comprehensive lessons have a twofold purpose : make you feel comfortable with French practice (expression and understanding) and make you progressively independent in your use of the language.
