Alternative French Lesson: have fun learning! - online or live

Do you think you are bad at language or you still have unpleasant memories of your first French lessons?

What if I told you that languages ​​are for everyone! With me? no more fear of failing or being ridiculous, no more boring lessons spent studying vocabulary lists or the details of French grammar.

Why? because I am convinced that motivation and pleasure of learning are the key elements in your learning process. So no risk to have a boring class!

Tell me what you are passionate about and what you feel like doing. My students are my partners and it is together that we create the course that suits you!

No syllabus therefore, nor that "stick to the plan" approach. The lessons are ajustable and flexible and will evolve according to your needs and desires.

Conversation remains the major asset because it will help you develop oral expression and comprehension, and from there will do multipule activities : grammar exercises, study of a song, writing essay, role-playing, reading / discussion around an article, word games, etc.

The goal is really to identify what works for you and to maximize on that to help you progress in a stimulating and enjoyable way.

I spent more than 20 years abroad (France, Germany, Kenya, Philippines ...) and believe me! this is how I learned foreign languages. I have also had the opportunity to test the effectiveness of this method over and over again with my students from all over the world!

Give a try and decide by yourself if it works for you too!

Fariël
Apprentissage Francais, Anglais, Allemand ou néerlandais
Hi I'm Fariel. I have been learning English and French since I was 10 years old. And german since I was 15 years old. I participated in languages camps for French and English and have spent several months abroad in international schools with host families. I also went 1 year abroad to focus on languages. I went to school in Berlin, Paris and Bristol (England). I graduate with 3 EF diplomes: French (C1), English (C2 ~ mother tongue language) and German (B2). Now I'm studying at the university of Neuchatel in French. In the first lesson, we will discuss on what you want to focus (whether it is pronounciation, grammatic, vocabulary ...). I will test your level by just having a conversation and then we will find the best way for you to learn the language.

Isis
Academic support and help with interdisciplinary homework for the primary level and the orientation cycle
Currently, student in 3rd gymnasium, at the college of the south, Bulle. I had my compulsory education diploma in the pre-gymnasium section. The idea of giving tutoring and offering to help is something I will enjoy doing. In addition, I like to share my methods and my knowledge with children and young students so that they understand and succeed as best as possible in their school tasks. To help the student to perform and understand his homework, my methodology is the explanation with concrete situations so that the student understands and builds an image of the situation. For example, drawing in mathematics makes it possible to better visualize situations. When it comes to languages, the best is the explanation using our own words because the explanations in the manuals can sometimes be quite complex. The incomprehension of literary matters obliges to take again what one does not understand and to try to simplify it, to memorize it and to learn it in all softness and calm.

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.
