Vanakkam Nanbare, I've been a Tamil tutor for 2.5years, and I'm fluent in the language. I can help you learn the basics of the language to the best of my ability. The class schedule caters to the needs of students and homework would be given to practice at home outside of teaching hours. I am looking forward to working with anyone and share experiences and thoughts to increase the comfort zone between student and teacher.

Sebastian
Swedish course for adults, students or kids! (All skill levels)
Hej och välkommen! Jag heter Sebastian och jag är 31 år gammal. I currently work as a Swedish teacher at the Volksuniversiteit The Hague and I love every minute I can spend with my students. A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands. I am a Swedish native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides Swedish I speak English, German, Spanish, French and Italian. Having learned multiple languages myself I am sure that I can successfully teach you Swedish in a fun and relaxed manner. My teaching focus lies on speaking the language as much as possible. Immersion is key to language learning. Think of small children. They are language geniuses. Why? Because they speak as soon as their brains permit them to speak, without worrying about making mistakes. Therefore, it is paramount to start using the newly learned words immediately in order to prime our brains to get comfortable with the new language. Do you already have Swedish knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. My classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Furthermore, I show you Swedish food, music and places. On top of that, I introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level! I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! My past and current students would testify to that. I look forward to hearing from you! Jag ser fram emot att höra ifrån dig! Greetings, Hälsningar, Sebastian

Entertaining List of Irregular Verbs: How to befriend the Beast.
Irregular verbs can be daunting at first. Although the best way to learn them is to use them often, memorizing is also part of the process. What are the best ways to get familiar with them? Step 1: Look up the list. Now you have the BIG SCARY LIST at your disposal. It's somewhere there on your desktop or it's printed on your desk. Step 2: Ask yourself why you need to know the list. The teacher said so. Irregular verbs are verbs that are rebellious and are always misbehaving. They refuse to abide by the rules of grammar unlike their siblings.. the regular verbs which receive -ed for both Past Tense and Past Participle. You need to get used to their forms so that you understand the mythical creature with 12 heads ( Tenses). The list is here as your armour. I put my armour on.. (Unstoppable by Sia) Short Infinitive go Past Tense went Past Participle gone To go (baddie) like liked liked To like (conformist) learn learned/ learnt (British) learned/ learnt (British) To learn (2-faced *inserting insult* ) Step 3: Give up at the sight of the numerous verbs and listen to Sia. Or even better play this guy's song on Youtube; it's a masterpiece: 6 hours Irregular verbs song – Learn 80 common Irregular Verbs in one song. Step 4: Now that the whole house is cleaned and you know how to rap in five languages, you can come back to irregular verbs. On a second look, you notice that they follow patterns too. There are plenty of groups and forums that have the same concerns as you do. You can follow their tricks or come up with yours. Gangs of Irregular Verbs: 1. Verbs that remain the same in the present, past and past participle. ( identical form) 2. Verbs that are the same in the past forms, but not the present. (2 identical forms in the past) 3. Verbs that end in -en in the past participle. Step 5: Now that you have dissected the Big Scary List, it looks ten times smaller. You can use them in sentences and create short stories which have been proved to be more efficient mnemonics than lists. Step 6: Have fun and enjoy learning while learning how to learn. Step 7: Follow my example and take a break too! Cheers!

English Conversation - Learn to speak fluent English with a neutral accent
Learn basic English grammar, tenses, and vocabulary to become fluent in everyday conversation with a neutral accent. I will provide several real-life scenarios and encourage students to hold hesitation-free conversations with a pleasant accent. Regardless of the many languages, one is fortunate to be fluent in, English takes its place as one of the world’s predominant forms of communication with its influences extending over as many as +2 billion people globally. Where it all started Many of you will be forgiven for thinking that studying an English Language course consists of English grammar more than anything else. While English grammar does play a part when taking courses to improve English overall, it is but a small part of the overall curriculum where one becomes immersed in a history that was partly influenced by myths, battles, and legends on one hand, and the everyday workings of its various social class on the other. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the English language itself really took off with the invasion of Britain during the 5th century. Three Germanic tribes, the Jutes, Saxons and Angles were seeking new lands to conquer and crossed over from the North Sea. It must be noted that the English language we know and study through various English language courses today had yet to be created as the inhabitants of Britain spoke various dialects of the Celtic language.
