French as a foreign language: beginners, conversation or diploma preparation

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Have you just arrived in Paris and need to boost your French? You have come to the right place!

I have 6 years of experience teaching French as a foreign language both to children and adults. I am originally from Spain but I grew up in France and have just graduated from one of France's most prestigious universities: Sciences Po, where, in addition to obtaining a diploma in Social Sciences, I organized French workshops for new students coming from abroad.

I offer classes for children and adults, individually or in groups and for all levels. Whether you want to start learning from scratch, improve your conversation skills or work towards becoming fluent in French for your career I can help you. With classes and a pedagogic model adapted to each student I offer a half-hour-long lesson to discuss your level and goals.

I also have experience preparing students for language exams (FLE) or French for nationality purposes.
