    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

For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for.

    Speak English, French, Spanish and/or Mandarin in no time!
    Hi! I just moved to Aix and would love to help anyone who would like to work on improving their language skills or even just start to learn a new foreign language. We can just practice speaking the language or work on the grammar. I know how daunting it is to speak another language other than your mother tongue but I want to show you that it is actually fun and can be very helpful for when you go traveling or at your workplace. I have travelled around the world since a very young age and would love to share my passion for languages with you. I was born in Paris but I grew up in Asia (Taiwan, India, and Malaysia). I have a Bachelor degree with honors in French and Spanish.
