About Me

My usual lesson begins with ostensive definitions. I may show a student something as obvious as colors. The colored flashcards are accompanied by matching statements, "This is red, blue, green, yellow..." After the student have mastered these, an inversion is introduced: we change the order of words and intonation to make a question, "Is this yellow?" At first all questions are genuine. They perfectly match colors, "Yes, this is yellow." Later, the genuine questions become more rare. I intentionally mismatch the flashcard color and the the color in the question, introducing a longer, negative answer, "No, this is not yellow. This is blue."

Next, I show the student a few simple objects; for example, pens, pencils and markers.The same game of ostensive definitions follows. At this point, I can add the previously acquired vocabulary. Only now, I use colors as adjectives, "This is a yellow pen." I advance to those confusing rhetorical questions, eventually mismatching the colors and objects, "Is this a blue marker?" "No, this is a red pencil." This is an opportunity to add more objects and allow the student to ask questions, s/he hopefully has mastered by now.

Flash cards can also introduce persons, whose names are subsequently mismatched. The same happens to the way the persons relate to each other: there we can have both family and subordinate/superordinate, i.e. work relations: "No, John is not Pam's brother, John is Pam's father, etc." We add friends, co-workers, possessions, etc. (Possessive Case is not explained but extensively practiced.)

The same method is used to show parts of the body, parts of the house, both exterior and interior, objects in the room and prepositions. New adjectives usually accompany new nouns.
Similarly, new verbs are introduced with flash cards showing simple and more complex actions: walking, talking, playing soccer, watching TV, horse-riding, etc. Adverbs follow the verbs.

The same method is useful for teaching more complex grammar, such as Conditional Mood. A dozen of iconic images assembled on a single sheet of paper show different household chores. Negotiation process follows, "Will you do the dishes, if I water the flowers?" The answer is always negative, then a new compromise is suggested, "No, but I will cook dinner, if you change the cat litter." As you can see, using this method, we can easily advance all the way to the 3rd Conditional.

Jack
Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

Private lessons for German - English - French
The student informs me of the concepts he wishes to see or review in French, German and / or English; I adapt and agree to give him a course of the best possible quality, as well as to provide him with exercises and advice adapted to his needs. I have completed my Bachelor in Multilingual Communication (Faculty of Translation and Interpretation of the University of Geneva) and am available to help other students and to share my knowledge with them. I started learning German over 15 years ago and have also completed numerous language stays in Germany, including a semester as an au pair with daily language lessons and an Erasmus semester as part of of my Bachelor. Furthermore, I have been speaking German daily in my private life for over two years now. As for English, I started learning it over 10 years ago; I also did a semester in Liverpool with daily lessons in a language school and have continued to practice it ever since, both personally and at university. I have obtained an official certificate attesting to my level of German (telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule), as well as a certificate attesting to my level of English (Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English - C1). Regarding French, it is my mother tongue and I am improving it day by day, particularly as part of my training as a translator at the University of Geneva. Ps: During the lockdown linked to Covid-19, I continued to give online lessons (via Skype); these classes went very well and were just as effective as the in-person classes. Given the current circumstances and because I no longer live in Geneva, I offer online courses (via Skype and with the help of other IT tools). I look forward to helping you in your learning process and passing on my passion for languages to you through our meetings! We look forward to meeting you soon! Elodie
