During my studies, I followed several internships abroad (UK, Malta) to perfect my English. The first objective is to learn / review the basics of English with the student, grammar and a precise vocabulary. It all depends on the objectives that the student has, I can prepare the appropriate lessons / materials
English: Pronunciation (British or American). NO grammar lessons. Adults only.
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

GERMAN LESSONS BEGINNERS CHILDREN/ TEENS (taught in English or French)
Do you want your children/teens to immerse themselves in the German language? The German lessons are usually taught in English in small groups (but can also be taught in French if the student doesn't know the English language). Private lessons can also be organised both in German (beginners) and in English (all levels). Children are said to be fast learners; through the interactive activities, they will be eager to learn the language, remember what they learned and apply their language skills in real life context. Why learn German? German has the largest number of native speakers in the European Union. German is among the ten most commonly spoken languages in the world. It's always a huge advantage to know the German Language when working in Europe and even in non-European countries, most of the time, employers will look after employees who can speak many languages and in particular German. Don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions. It would be a huge pleasure to integrate your child/teenager in one of my classes. :-) Lessons usually last 50 minutes.

The course and my method of teaching the language are based on a communicative approach: the student will learn the language gradually by using it and communicating in a real language and not abstract.
