Reviews (1)

Un cours avancé, du sur-mesure pour progresser sur la prononciation, l’écrit, l’aisance orale. Beaucoup de précisions dans l’approche générale et l’évaluation des besoins, et pour autant des conseils simples, des astuces efficaces. Je suis très satisfait des cours de James qui est par ailleurs une période sympathique qui met à l’aise dans le cadre des conversations in English of course !

Learn English Grammar And Paragraph Writing for Beginners, Intermediates and advanced ( A1 / A2 / A3 / B1 / B2 / B3 / C1 / C2 )
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in writing, speaking, reading and listening and lack correct grammar and skills. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when using English. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. Together we would go through all the English aspects that you should be aware of and implicate the knowlege aquired in real intresting topics and activities. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through various social and interactive stimulation You may request a full refund and get your money back after your class if you believe that it doesn't suit you .

Isabel
English & Spanish lessons in Brussels - Learn with a different approach to languages!
I am a motivated Spanish & English teacher. I have been teaching Spanish & English for the past 10 years and I love it! I teach it by using Speak First, that is an approach that uses the most common language and grammar in order to speak. We will be speaking (but not writing!) for the first few lessons, so that you get used to the Spanish /English pronunciation (and most tricky parts of grammar) and become a proficient learner. I normally present Spanish / English grammar in a cultural way: you will learn about the festivals, the most common places to go on holiday, trips, school life, etc
