French Language for Native English or German Speakers

Moving to a new country can be quite a daunting and difficult change. While you can get by in most situations in English, in other situations, it simply does not suffice.

This class is for anyone looking to pick up French as a second language. The focus is to learn expressions and phrases, as well as pronunciation and how to speak without the dreaded 'foreigner' accent. From there we can build a foundation on which you can build.

Having first moved here 20 years ago, I have grown up in Switzerland, my early childhood was spent in Germany, meaning I can teach people whose mother tongue is either German or English. They say practice makes perfect, and that has certainly been the case for me. So that is what I will do with you, practice with you and guide you until perfect.

About Me

Based in Vaud, I first moved to Switzerland 20 years ago, having grown up internationally. I have picked up French and German at a very high level, and am able to conduct business in both languages, often passing for a native given I only have a slight accent in one of those - see if you can guess which :)

Now I am looking to pass that knowledge on to anyone based in the area looking to improve their language skills. I have many years of tutoring experience at school level, but am looking to teach business French, English and German to anyone who is keen to learn.

Experience / Qualifications

6 years of Banking & Finance Recruitment Experience in the Geneva region, working in English, German & French
3 years of Sales Management experience
Learn English from a native English speaker. I was born in the UK, though having been raised internationally, I have learned and mastered 2 other languages myself (French and German) and have found that the workplace can be one of the most challenging places to be when you do not speak the language everyone else speaks. Even if your company operates in German or French predominantly, often times there will be clients or other international offices where English is required. There is nothing worse than being in a meeting, or on a conference call, or even getting a coffee and not understanding the conversation. Let me help you to master everything from phrases you may not recognise to small talk. Anything you are having trouble understanding, you have the comfort of knowing I can further explain in either German or French when necessary.

French lessons given by a motivated and motivating teacher!
Teacher for more than seven years in Geneva, I am passionate about my work and, in general, by the French language. I can help you in language as in literature; together we will find the means for you to progress. My goal is to give meaning to knowledge and to show that we can study French while having fun! I also have a master's degree in modern French, general history and French didactics. I offer weekly monitoring through an online platform, so you can measure your progress and practice outside of lessons. I like to offer several means of learning, from the most basic (doing exercises, copying sentences) to the most modern (playing small games, watching videos ...). It all depends on the student and their expectations. No method is imposed; the important thing is that you feel good and that you can familiarize yourself with the tools adapted to your profile. It is quite possible for me to help with the writing / correction of work, to finish; I will not do them for you of course, but can provide you with the support and follow-up you need to make them happen. See you soon !

Alejandro & Eléa
Private maths, physics and French lessons and homework help, Tutors 5 years of experience
We are two math and physics tutors and help with homework for all levels up to university. We give our private lessons online via zoom. We have decided to create a common profile in order to best meet the demands of our students and thus ensure the most adequate support according to their profile and expectations. Alejandro: I am a master's student in sustainable development. Before that I obtained my Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at EPFL. I offer math / physics courses for students who need help to follow their courses as well as those in search of improvement. Elea: I graduated from the school of speech therapy (speech therapy) at La Sorbonne University in Paris in July. Before my training, I obtained my scientific baccalaureate with honors, and completed a year of preparation for speech therapy competitions. I thus have a scientific and literary background allowing me to support your child in all the subjects of his school curriculum. I would like to point out that I am offering private lessons here in a school setting and not speech therapy sessions which are part of the care. Nevertheless, my training allows me to demonstrate a pedagogy taking into account the profile of your child. Comprehensive and methodical, we personalize our lessons to be able to provide solid support to our students. Our courses allow you to acquire methods of reflection and resolution of exercises to better tackle these subjects. Our goal is to help our students gain confidence and skills in the targeted subjects, so they can face the exams with confidence. Are you not convinced of the effectiveness of online courses? We invite you to ask us for more information on the course of the distance learning courses, guaranteeing you a safe learning.

Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

De technologie om je Frans te verbeteren. Lessen met een gecertificeerde native docent.
TECHNOLOGIEËN VOOR HET LEREN. Hallo, Mijn naam is Laurie en ik ben een onafhankelijke FLE-leraar, afgestudeerd in het Frans en Romaanse talen en literatuur sinds 2012. Ik heb vijf jaar ervaring onder mijn riem (in het buitenland en in België). Ik heb LangMethod gemaakt, een leermethode voor online cursussen. De cursus omvat: -Het materiaal (artikelen, video's, oefeningen van afbeeldingen en teksten, grammaticale theorie, links naar de oefeningen ...). Ik gebruik Google Doc, dus het beste is om een ​​Gmail-adres te hebben om er toegang toe te hebben. -De correctie van oefeningen buiten de les (de schriftelijke uitdrukkingen worden gecorrigeerd buiten de les, of met de student, volgens zijn behoeften). -Toegang tot een applicatie (gratis) om woordenschat op uw smartphone te bestuderen. -Een woordenschatblad - uitspraak - grammatica / vervoeging, verzonden na elke cursus. -Indien nodig, een vocabulaireopname (voor beginners). -De realisatie van online oefeningen en tests uit de verzonden vocabulairebladen. -Motivatie, gelach, goed humeur :-) Mijn methode: - Het is gebaseerd op spreken. -Voor grammatica gebruik ik een vraag / antwoord-methode (geleerd tijdens de training in het CERAN-centrum). -We werken aan de uitspraak met de verbotonale methode (oefeningen om je stem te zetten, voor ritme, enz.). Ik zou je misschien zelfs laten zingen! :-) -Alles gaat door het gesproken woord voordat het geschreven woord wordt doorlopen, maar ik pas me duidelijk aan aan de behoeften van de studenten. -De cursus is een beetje anders voor kinderen en adolescenten: ik gebruik interactieve games en kaarten via de webcam. Tot binnenkort! Laurie NB: Mogelijkheid om een ​​factuur te maken voor particulieren of bedrijven.

French private lessons: Language and communication [ONLINE]
I am a French teacher, an academician. I have been teaching French, language and communication since 2012. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English and a little Turkish. I explain my classes in French, in Arabic or in Spanish, according to your choice. During the session I explain the course that suits your needs. There is also the option to create an open discussion so that you can speak fluently over time and avoid grammatical gaps. And at the end of each session, I give "lessons" with "exercises" to do as homework to continue our accompaniment and increase your level.

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.
