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.

Education

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 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.

French as a foreign language course per university. Preparation for the DELF / DALF
My course is intended for non-francophone adults of all levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). Using a recognized and effective learning method like the Alter Ego method as well as all the specialized works in French as a foreign language, my course has a complete and varied content. All the didactic materials adopted during the course such as press articles, literature texts, films, audio media and others bring to class an optimal dynamic. Therefore, they offer a more practical approach to the language and understand all aspects of French and Swiss culture. Each daily class includes progressive learning of grammar, spelling, conjugation and vocabulary. Conscious of the importance of fluency in spoken language, I also devote a large part to speaking and conversation.

Private lessons in languages and methodology of work
Passionate about languages, I am convinced that learning a foreign language, or even working more thoroughly in one's mother tongue, is a great wealth in terms of openness and self-awareness. It is also a very valuable tool for learning how to organize your thoughts and structure your ideas; what we all need in our daily lives. Holder of a Master in Sociology of Communication and Media and Journalism (University of Friborg) and a Master of Arts (University of Lausanne), I offer private courses entirely based on the needs and expectations of the person. The goal is that the use and learning of the language brings something concrete, especially in terms of work methodology. I teach French (school or foreign language) and English at all levels and to people of all ages.
