    Think deep and have fun learning English in Leognan / Bordeaux

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    How long did you spend studying Shakespeare's language, and ultimately, how satisfied are you with the way you communicate in English? Do you use Anglo-Saxon idioms naturally? Do you self-correct easily, or do you repeat, always, the same mistakes? Years of research and practice as a teacher and professional translator have shown me that these questions touch on the most powerful barriers to learning English. The impossibility of overcoming the difficulties that everyone encounters inevitably when learning a language results in a feeling of demotivating stagnation. This is what prevents most of us from moving forward, from getting to the next level, from having the ability to communicate in English, but that's not inevitable!

    It is now recognized that, more than mathematics, for example, learning a language primarily involves a form of intelligence called emotional (it is called logic for maths). We often talk about "appropriating" a language, making it a "personal expression", expressing its "own style". This vocabulary reflects the need for a positive relationship between the student's personality and that of his teacher, other students, and also with Anglophones and Anglo-Saxon culture in general. In parallel with the strictly linguistic study, the exploration of the deep and playful side of English, based on its great musicality, generates more satisfactions than frustrations. This work is at the heart of my method. Whether the classes take place in a formal or informal setting according to the wishes of the students, the goal is to cultivate a taste for effort while having fun.
    I propose two formulas to reverse the trend: come improve your practice with an intensive internship, a lunch in town (which will require you to communicate effectively, to assimilate common vocabulary, in particular) or continue a background work with courses weekly individual or group. Each course presents new writing, audio, video, a reactivation of grammar and vocabulary discussed in the previous class, a follow-up by email, possible interactions with other students face-to-face or via an interposed website. My experience proved to me that this form of learning, inspired by "blended learning", proved very effective it mixes sources and supports. He wins more and more followers around the world. So join us and become a real English speaker! I am looking forward to meeting you.

    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Experienced English teacher, specializing in translation, didactics, anthropology, North American culture and contemporary music.

    Professional of teaching English, I love my job because it makes me meet all kinds of people. In learning, I prefer a formal or informal setting according to the wishes of the students, but I always cultivate the taste of the effort by practicing a pedagogy of encouragement.

    I'm Anglo-Saxon, but that did not stop me from having to overcome some blockages to feel fully French-English! I deepened my reflection on the emotional side of language learning by practicing translation, looking for what connects us most intuitively to language - and I now think that for this dimension, we have to look to the side of the music. So it's not a coincidence that I sing and play jazz, and if I wondered about the intercultural dimensions of music through anthropology. This attachment to the transposition of one language to another and to music (that of the language!) Helped me to grasp the deep side and the playful side of its learning.

    Even if I happen to help unfortunate students to "cram" to pass their exams (; D), I really like working on the involvement of people in learning, to move, to fly, to dissolve the old mistakes crystallized over the years, to arouse envy and reinforce the capacities to discover and retain new expressions, to inspire and inspire others in return, in short, to connect with English speakers around the world. It is this work on the emergence and the accompaniment of the interior music, the personal style, which motivates me particularly in the long term.

    English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
    English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students
