Improve your languages - Italian, French or English
I'm passionate about languages and I'm interested in using my language skills and high communicative capacity to support everyone who wants to improve Italian, French or English. My goal is to provide students the necessary tools to develop their knowledge and become more confident of their language skills. I can combine all my knowledge and experiences to provide the best value for the learner with tailored classes and methods based on the needs.

Improve your English (for students and adults) by SKYPE
My course is for anyone who wants to improve their level of English. I am learning several foreign languages myself and I have level C1 in English. I am currently a student in St Andrews, Scotland. I can therefore help the student to gain self-confidence, whether orally or in writing in order to get started in English, which is an important language to acquire. I organize my lessons in a fun way, working on grammar but also texts, videos to better understand English culture! I can also help students preparing for exams (TOEIC, TOEFL etc.) by training them and helping them on difficult points. For more information, do not hesitate to contact me!

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
I offer you my services to make you truly performant oral / written in English. If you must use English as part of your professional activity and you do not feel comfortable ... If you're tired of being spotted right away like French ... If you do not know still not when to use the present perfect / the preterite .... I am here to help you. * Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.

ENGLISH course - become fluent in English, communicate in English without prejudice
Actor of formation having lived abroad (London and Toronto), I love English and I would like everyone to know how to speak it! There is indeed a delay in France with respect to English, which is remembered is spoken worldwide and is the first language of communication! And this comes mainly from the lack of confidence in the oral. That is why with you I will work above all on the ease and the confidence but also on the pronunciation and the rhythm.

english grammar and vocabulary exercises, tenses and articles
I am an electrical engineering graduate from South Africa and have specialized in Computer Operating Systems Engineering. I have been living in Belgium for 6 years now and have noticed how the majority speaks English and making mistakes in English language tenses and grammatical errors, and moreover I think the young and old deserve a chance to learn this world recognized language as it is a world lingua-franca. The lessons are given according to your needs and the level of English you already have. For kids they are also given in a sort of gaming, singing and many more. For university and college students, the lessons are according to their academic needs and more talking as a practice. These lessons can be given to your place or online or in Bouwhandelstraat, 2140 Borgerhout. For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
