Learning English is easy! Trust yourself -lessons of writing, reading and oral expression for all levels
Bonjour je m'appelle Audrey ! (English version bellow) Je suis étudiante en relations internationales et en langues étrangères chinois à l'INALCO. De par mes études et ayant beaucoup voyagé je sais à quel point apprendre une langue étrangère peut être difficile à maitriser et certains paliers à dépasser. Surtout, j'ai remarqué qu'il est difficile de se faire confiance dans une langue qui n'est pas la nôtre. C'est pourquoi je vous propose mon aide ! Native française, je suis originaire du Poitou Charente dans l'ouest de la France. J'ai eu l'opportunité de beaucoup voyager lors de mon adolescence et pendant mes études particulièrement en Asie. Je réalise actuellement ma dernière année de master à Paris. Depuis plusieurs années, j'ai pris l'habitude de donner des cours d'anglais à des enfants mais aussi à des adultes , de tout niveaux. J'ai ainsi accompagné des Coréens, des Iraniens, des français etc. J'ai comme objectif que vous preniez plaisir à apprendre l'anglais et à atteindre vos objectifs. Le cours sera donc totalement personnalisé et s'adaptera à vos besoins et à votre centre d'intérêt. Je vous ferais également découvrir la culture au cours de nos leçons (sujets d'actualité, moments forts de l'année ect) car pour apprendre une langue il faut comprendre la culture du pays. Mes cours auront comme objectif de vous faire travailler les cinq compétences : expression orale, écrite, compréhension orale et écrite, grammaire. Bien entendu si vous ne souhaitez travailler que sur un aspect en particulier cela sera possible. Nous pouvons utiliser le matériel que vous possédez ou nous pouvons également travailler avec les ressources dont je dispose. À votre demande et en fonction de vos besoins je pourrais vous donner des devoirs pour poursuivre vos efforts en dehors de nos cours. N'hésitez pas à me contacter si vous avez des questions. Je serai heureuse d'échanger avec vous sur vos attentes, vos objectifs et ma méthode de travail. Au plaisir de vous aider dans votre quête de la maitrise de l'anglais. À bientôt !

That's why I offer you my help! I am a French native from Poitou Charente. I traveled all around the world when i was a teenager and a young adult especially in Asia.

I will also introduce you to the culture during our lessons (current events, highlights of the year, etc.) because in order to learn a language you need to understand the culture of the country. My classes will focus on the five skills: speaking, writing, listening, reading and grammar. Of course, if you wish to work on only one aspect in particular, this will be possible. We can use the material you have or we can also work with the resources I have. At your request and according to your needs I can give you homework to continue your efforts outside of our classes.

Conversational virtual Spanish classes for all levels - adults
Hello, My name is Santiago and I am offering individual and personalized virtual Spanish classes to improve both your oral and written communication. The main focus of my classes is focused on developing fluent and structured communication of the Spanish language either to prepare international exams, to be able to communicate properly in the professional field or to reinforce and maintain prior knowledge of this language. I am a native Spanish speaker from Uruguay, graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in the USA, and studied communication arts for a year and a half in Thailand. While studying communication arts, I had several public speaking classes, learning techniques of how to speak better using not only our words but also our body to help us speak more naturally, calmly, and without getting nervous if we get stuck or forget what we wanted to say. During my career in the US, I was constantly writing essays for my classes, in addition to having to present projects in front of my teachers and classmates. At the same time, I was working at university and after graduation I worked for a year, mainly having long phone conversations with people from all over the country. These past years I gained invaluable experience in living abroad and communicating using my second language. Now, I help others who are looking to do the same. I help people of all around the world with their Spanish so they can meet their goals. It could be studying abroad, going to live in a Spanish-speaking country, improving your communication in the professional field, or keep practicing so as not to lose your previously acquired level. If what you are looking for is to improve your knowledge of the Spanish language, I will help you. My methodology is simple. Each person is different and I adapt the content of my classes to the needs and interests of my students. We all learn in different ways and at different times. That's why I design my classes individually, focusing more on conversation, speaking, listening, while also helping with reading and grammar. This way we can keep classes entertaining, covering all angles of Spanish learning, and learning this language as a whole.

Creative Music Expression - Understanding Music
Would you like to approach the creative writing of music? Would you like to fully understand the languages and the way music works? Can I help you! Like any form of creative expression, music has its rules, rooted in perception and in the context around us. We can work on fundamental concepts of musical expression, valid in all genres and also immerse ourselves in the area that interests you most (baroque, classical, pop, jazz ...) My course has a non-academic approach and it is open to all: whether you are professionals who want to deepen their musical knowledge, or you are amateurs or beginners we can build the perfect course for you and that will allow you to express yourself or simply to better understand the music you are listening to. The only thing I highly recommend is knowing how to read music, because it allows us to go much faster. If you are not able, we can start there.
Living languages for the real world! English (ESL) and Spanish (ELE) courses for all levels (academic, professional, leisure, etc.)
Living languages are my PASSION and soon they can be yours!! 🇻🇪🇺🇲🇨🇵 We're not going to lie to each other: mastering a second (or third) language isn't always easy. Even when you are 200% MOTIVATED, the project can take well over a year and sometimes several. This is normal, since it is not a simple work of memory, but a very complex COGNITIVE PROCESS and our brain needs practice, of course, but above all time for the new language to develop. . But none of that means it's impossible! Far from it! It's just that there is no magic recipe: you have to put your HEART into it, concentrate and manage to be CONSTANT. To ACCOMPANY and HELP you in your process of learning (or improving) SPANISH or ENGLISH, I offer personalized lessons, at home or via webcam, completely adapted to YOUR starting LEVEL and your GOALS. Well beyond the "communicative" approach, I offer you a HYBRID method which not only takes into account the different learning styles (deductive/inductive; dialectical; divergent) but which is above all based on very particular attention to the aspects that condition learning (in particular the PERSONALITY of the learner and his socio-affective particularities). Moreover, we will work with a fairly eclectic mix of tools and media (printed, audiovisual, self-constructed, etc.) guided by a co-constructed work plan (the learner always remains the main actor in the process) , well structured but flexible enough to be able to adapt to the needs and academic/professional constraints of Parisian (and Ile-de-France) life. So, if you want to LEARN, PROGRESS, DISCOVER or simply HAVE FUN with "your" languages, you've come to the right place. I am eager to discover your NEEDS, your OBJECTIVES and your DESIRES concerning the rich and exciting world of learning foreign languages.
