English for beginners, online, acquire basic knowledge of English and become an independent learner
An element for progressing rapidly in the new language of developing one's vocabulary. Oubliez la grammaire for a moment. If you are a good master of the grammar of your language: if your vocabulary is limited, you should only express it simply. Mieux vaut s'exprimer en faisant quelques fautes de grammaire que ne pas pouvoir s'exprimer du tout! It is sufficient to pass the first step of the manière aléatoire. There are different types of vocabulary: More than a grammatical addition is a one-off error in the presentation, but if the apprendre paralelement is not correct, it is necessary to ensure that the professor is able to combine the method effectively

Rob
English Communication/Conversation With an Experienced Native-Speaking Teacher
I'm a native English speaker from Canada, currently living in Prague, with many years of ESL and university teaching experience. I can help you gain confidence and improve skills through stimulating, content-based lessons with varieties of topics, activities and materials, designed and adapted to your level, interests, and requirements, and what you and I together feel we want and need to work on flexibly week by week. I work with intermediate to advanced students (B1-C2), with most of my students interested in conversation/communication English (focusing on speaking and listening skills, and including improving vocabulary, fluency, pronunciation, and grammar), but I’m also happy to work with students on writing and reading. My teaching style is engaging, creative and friendly—I try to make every lesson an interesting and enjoyable one. But I’m also professional, prepared, organized, and reliable. I rarely use a textbook—some students enjoy primarily having conversation without other resources needed, but I also often use songs, videos, and texts of various kinds to provide a wide variety of topics, new vocabulary, varieties of listening practice, etc., and I also use varieties of ESL material from various internet sources as well.

ENGLISH and GERMAN LESSONS FOR CHILDREN/ TEENS/ ADULTS BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED
Hello everyone and welcome to my English and or German lessons taught in group. I organise English and German lessons for children and teenagers and separately adult English group lessons (beginners to advanced). For children and teenagers, interactive activities are used as a way to motivate them, help them remember what they have learned in class and make sure they will be able to apply their language skills in real life context. For the adults lessons, depending on what the students are willing to learn, we can have discussions based on the news, some grammar, writing... I am open to any suggestions, just tell me your needs and I am going to adapt the next lessons for you. If you wish to invite your friends and make a group with them, just let me know and I will allocate you a time slot. For private English lessons, please have a look at my other advertisements. The German lessons are usually for beginners/ intermediate (exceptionally advanced levels in German can be organised only if there is a high-demand). Don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions. It would be a huge pleasure to integrate you in one of my classes. :-) Lessons usually last 50 minutes.

English classes for all levels and ages. Methodology adapted to each student.
I offer English classes for all levels and ages. Classes can be one-to-one and in groups. My methodology focuses mainly on practicing speaking and listening. However, the methodology depends on the student's strengths and weaknesses. The methodology depends on the needs of the students. I've experienced working with teenagers and high school students. I can adapt my methodology to students who do not yet know how to read or write. For the little ones I try to make my classes very practical and full of games, focusing mainly on listening. For older students, it will depend on the student's goal. I don't speack French.

Shabneez
English, Turkish, French, Maths, Economics, Accounting & Chess Tuitions. I also do translation works in English-Turkish-French.
The focus of my tuitions is to instil the confidence necessary in the student to embrace a new language, and to master the little tactics of learning. I have a variety of materials to make sure that my student(s) do not get overwhelmed, but instead feel motivated to learn more. Depending upon the personality and wants of my student, I may assign written homework and/or other stimulating stuff like videos to make sure the student is having a continuous and sustainable progress. I was also an Intercollege Chess Champion back in my country, hence, I can give you various techniques and strategies to foresee the moves of your opponents, calculate and plan everything in your head before acting (so as to prevent your rival from getting any hint of your motives), and brain exercises to improve your logic and memory simultaneously as these two areas of the brain are the two main determinants of how fierce and successful a chess player you would be. As for the translation works, I specialise in the translation of any work ranging from research articles to simple homework. I have translated various documents in the following languages: English, French and Turkish.
