Spanish & English Lessons with Erika in Belgium :)
Teaching is my passion, and as a native speaker, I've had the pleasure of connecting with students worldwide, starting from my experiences in the Czech Republic where I used to teach English to children. We can delve into the intricacies of communication, focusing on what matters to you. I prepare students for tests like DELE and SIELE, tailoring my approach to your unique goals—whether it's acing an exam, exploring the world, or simply diving into language and culture. My lessons take a casual twist—we might stroll around, grab a coffee or tea, and make learning an enjoyable experience. The best part for me is when students express gratitude for our time together.

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American). No grammar lessons. Adults only.
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

English - learn by doing (from perfecting the language to teaching the basics to upgrading)
In the case of tutoring, I base my lessons on the subject seen by the student by explaining to him in another way with many examples and by making him practice as much as possible. In case of learning the basics, I have set up my own totally interactive method so that the student can practice and during which I speak almost only in English to be close to immersion during the lessons. Do not hesitate to contact me for: - learn the basics - prepare for a test - have support for your lessons - practice the language - ... Whatever your needs, I take a practical and fun approach to English because, in my opinion, it is the best way to learn.

Gohar
English for beginners, online, acquire basic knowledge of English and become an independent learner
An element for progressing rapidly in the new language of developing one's vocabulary. Oubliez la grammaire for a moment. If you are a good master of the grammar of your language: if your vocabulary is limited, you should only express it simply. Mieux vaut s'exprimer en faisant quelques fautes de grammaire que ne pas pouvoir s'exprimer du tout! It is sufficient to pass the first step of the manière aléatoire. There are different types of vocabulary: More than a grammatical addition is a one-off error in the presentation, but if the apprendre paralelement is not correct, it is necessary to ensure that the professor is able to combine the method effectively

Liora
English lessons for beginners and more advanced (children and adults), oral practice, accent, vocabulary, pronunciation
The best way to learn a language is to practice it, listen to it and read it! This is why, as far as possible, the lessons will be given IN English, in order to train both your ear and to push you to answer/think in English. A large part of the learning will go through the oral practice of the language: you will be invited to express yourself on various subjects that interest you. Depending on your interests (and the sphere of possibilities), we can practice English through different activities: cooking, song analysis/translation, etc. Do not hesitate to call on me, if your objective is: - To acquire a more fluent English / to converse - Work on your pronunciation/accent - To rework a written text / train your written expression - Learn the basics of the language I am used to working with children and can adapt to all audiences. I also offer lessons for the little ones, for a fun initiation with games and small activities (cooking, crafts, walks, drawing, etc.). I can also address an adult audience seeking to acquire fluent English, a developed vocabulary, and ease in specific contexts.

Emmanuel
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.
