French as a Foreign Language Course (Reinforced Oral Practice)

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
Mastering the language of Molière, both beautiful and complex, is not easy even for native speakers.

This is why I offer French as a foreign language courses rather focused on oral practice, but obviously accompanied by a theoretical base. I adapt to each person's pace and preferences, on the topic of conversation that interests them.

For beginners, I suggest starting with everyday vocabulary, expressions of standard French and/or specific to the country.

For the more advanced, we can start discussions on a subject that fascinates them from their language to French.

About Me

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
Lessons based on the student's personal preferences and needs, from beginner to intermediate level, explanations and theory aids (music or languages) can be provided. As for the learning methods, fun and dynamic (crosswords, quizzes, diagrams, etc.) optimize concentration and efficiency in the student's work.

I want my students to flourish in their learning. I am open to any type of conversation, ideas, and am comfortable teaching in French and English.

Very attentive Fun method

Very good first lesson!
Narindra is a very nice young lady who is sharing her passion for music by teaching. She is currently a student and is using her knowledge to help others. She is young, enthusiastic, respectful, and knowledgeable.
The first minutes will be focused on the theory (in English, French or both if asked), and some culture of the western music. Then we will practise on the instrument. The program is free, the student can bring any sheets he wants. He will be advised on the manuel technic (how to place his/her hands, how to read efficiently).
Beginning of the course: The first hour is above all an hour of discovery of the student, knowing his level, his ambitions, his rhythm. From there we can establish a work plan. The courses are not necessarily done by theory (grammar, phonetics), but more often on oral practice (exercise of pronunciation, free discussions, varied and/or specific for the most advanced). All animated by playful games of general culture or the language itself. For those wishing to focus more on grammar or writing. We can opt for the translation of an extract from a book or standard sentences. Don't hesitate to want to talk about a subject you are passionate about, it always makes learning much better :)
Even though music is universal, specific terms and method learning differ from one culture and another one. This is why I propose some individual courses of music and piano for people curions about discovering or maybe improving their artistic skills in the language of Moliere. At the beginning of the lesson, the student will be trained by some theory, not the best part for most people. But with the help of mnemotechnic methods, those basics won't have a secret for him/her anymore ;) Then, I will adapt the pratical part depending on the student's level...and will of course ;) He/She can bring the music piece he would like to play.

Phillip
Private French lessons for adults and teenagers with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of tutoring in both French and English. My students have ranged in age, background, and origin, spanning children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and even seniors aged 85 and above. You might wonder why I teach both languages. Well, I am bilingual, with American and Swiss/French roots, and I currently reside in Ireland. This unique blend of experiences equips me with a strong and relevant teaching approach. I possess an intimate understanding of both cultures, enabling me to tailor my classes to the specific needs of my students. My teaching journey began during my time studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland. I started offering private French and English lessons to supplement my income, and I quickly discovered my passion for it. Even after graduating and embarking on a full-time career, I couldn't bear to give up this rewarding activity. I cherished the opportunity to connect with diverse individuals and assist them in achieving their language goals. In my teaching methodology, interactivity takes center stage. I employ a variety of engaging learning tools, including photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, and more. My approach is highly adaptable, with a focus on addressing each student's unique priorities. Some seek to refine their pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, while others require assistance with presentations or speeches for school or work. Some simply aspire to acquire a new language to enrich their general knowledge. I also specialize in teaching younger children, a testament to my educational background and experience. What you will gain from my courses extends beyond impeccable pronunciation and enhanced vocabulary and grammar. You'll also acquire a profound understanding of the culture associated with each language. When speaking a language, it's essential to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nations where it thrives. French and English are spoken as primary languages in numerous countries worldwide, each with its own unique accent and cultural nuances. The learning process is limitless! In addition to my language instruction, I'm a genealogist and host spiritual (non-religious) seminars in the beautiful West of Ireland. My passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine adds a flavorful dimension to my life. Furthermore, I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have operated a private "Before & Afterschool" facility along with Summer Camps catering to children aged 4 to 12 for many years. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of meeting and working with you!

Kevin
Non-academic Latin lessons. Multilingual teacher with 9 years of experience. Pronunciation, historical linguistics, conceptual semantics.
Contrary to popular belief, learning Latin is not like learning the phone book by heart. I offer you Latin lessons that are unlike any other. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you take the train back and forth every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Learn the schedules by heart. 2) Note that the train arrives every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in study notebooks and in ordinary courses, it is the first approach which is adopted - in the courses that I offer you, it is the second because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both students and adults who want to learn the Latin language or deepen their knowledge without time-consuming detours through the insanities of school methods which do not produce results. Learning is easy but unlearning what has become a bad habit is extremely difficult. All the more important it is to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. With my tailor-made teaching you will accelerate your learning in a positive state of mind. I offer individual or group Latin lessons (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive sciences and in particular historical linguistics. What will not be the subject of the course: learn lists of verbs; learn lists of nouns with their gender; learn words with their translations; memory card game; doing school exercises; follow the program in a notebook; impose French grammar on the Latin language. What matters to me in particular: motivate my student and give him a learning rhythm; encourage creativity; make friends with language; letters and their sounds strengthen your memory by working on the phonological loop; teach construction plans instead of having people learn sentences by heart; explain how the language works to make my student independent as quickly as possible; breaking preconceived ideas such as the gammatical gender would have a link with the biological gender, the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, the verbs would be irregular, the declension would be random and therefore to be learned with each verb... ; place practice at the center and articulate grammar around practice. In the context of a first course, you can get a well-founded idea of my pedagogy. I look forward to meeting you.

🇲🇫 Be Fluent in French and Speak it with Confidence!
My name is Fatima and I am delighted to introduce myself to you as your future French teacher. For four years, I have had the pleasure of teaching this magnificent language and its rich and diverse literature. Currently based in Vietnam, I have had the opportunity to teach students from diverse backgrounds, which has enriched my perspective and my teaching method. My passion for the French language and literature began at a very young age, and it led me to obtain a master's degree in French literature and education. Every day, I am inspired by the works of great authors and by the beauty of the French language. What pushes me to share my knowledge is the deep desire to transmit this passion and to see my students flourish thanks to their mastery of French. As a teacher, I adopt a different teaching method. I favor interactive and creative lessons, where each student can express themselves freely and develop their language skills in a dynamic and engaging way. My goal is to make you love the French language as much as I love it, and to give you the tools you need to express yourself with ease and confidence. I can't wait to start this adventure with you and share the richness of French literature together. Join me to discover a world of words, stories and culture.
