Reviews (5)

Great lesson with experienced teacher. I needed to review some pronunciation in English and Clive was the perfect teacher. Relaxed, professional, dedicated, educated, former diplomat, understands the needs of international business people and students. He also gives a lot of interesting feedback and additional information such literature, links, etc.
Clive is a great English teacher that i strongly recommend. After a first informal level assessment, Clive made some suggestions for our programme (5 times 1h30) based on my professional needs. He demonstrated adaptability and was happy to adjust the lesson to last minute requests from my side. Clive is always punctual and has his material ready for the lesson. In a nutshell, Clive is a great value for money for those who are looking for specific English reinforcement.
GREAT!

English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students

English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students)
I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

Rebecca
English Language- exam preparation, conversation, business.
My name is Rebecca, and I am a CELTA-certified, native English speaker. Whether you are a complete beginner, studying for exams like IELTS, or just brushing up on general or conversational English, I am here to help! I have over 3.5 years experience teaching English to all levels, all age groups, and for all reasons. I believe in working with the student to find the right approach for each individual. This can vary from formal exam practice or learning through interactive elements such as film and song or project based work, to more traditional-style lessons and homework. My priority is to use language that you can use in your everyday life, and to ensure you feel at ease while you learn. I love teaching, and pride myself on my rapport with all students. In each lesson, we will cover grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation through all of the skills (reading, writing, speaking, and listening). I can provide homework, practice exams, and monthly progress reports and feedback. I look forward to working with you!

Speak English, French, Spanish and/or Mandarin in no time!
Hi! I just moved to Aix and would love to help anyone who would like to work on improving their language skills or even just start to learn a new foreign language. We can just practice speaking the language or work on the grammar. I know how daunting it is to speak another language other than your mother tongue but I want to show you that it is actually fun and can be very helpful for when you go traveling or at your workplace. I have travelled around the world since a very young age and would love to share my passion for languages with you. I was born in Paris but I grew up in Asia (Taiwan, India, and Malaysia). I have a Bachelor degree with honors in French and Spanish.
