I also served on an EPSO selection board in order to recruit translators. My three children went to one of the European Schools in Brussels, so I'm familiar with how the European School system works.

cours privée d'anglais en français ou néerlandais, primaire et secondaire
Au fil du temps, l'utilisation de l'anglais augmente Exponentiellement, a cause de la mondialisation. D'où l'importance de son d'apprentissage dans une ville internationale comme Bruxelles. Diplômée d'une école d'anglais, avec les Cambridge A-levels en Anglais, Français, mathématiques, biologie et l'art, j'enseignerais à votre enfant les bases ainsi que les formes avancées de l'anglais.

Laurianne
Private lessons in English, German and French
I first identify the student's shortcomings and then develop a work plan with him / her. My goal is to get students to do their best while having fun and having a taste for language and culture. I want to remedy their difficulties and especially to (re) give them confidence, because I consider that 70% of the capacity to be able to express oneself in another language depends on our confidence in ourselves and / or our abilities. For students who would like to go further, I also give them the opportunity by teaching them the nuances of the language, the language "spoken" or the formal language, mainly written ... it's according to their wishes . Above all, I want to meet the expectations of my students and help them improve where they want. Having (had) direct contact with English and German, I also anchor my courses in the cultural reality of each of these languages ​​by talking about current topics, using new technologies or starting from popular culture to give meaning to what I teach, so that the student sees the direct use he / she can make of his language knowledge. After all, in a more and more globalized world, languages ​​are living and are no longer just fixed forms in books that are several years old. I am therefore turned towards the students and, although I also wish to transmit my passion to them, my point of honor is to be able to understand them and to understand their real difficulties / desires in order to be able to create a course adapted to each one.

Do not hesitate to formulate your questions and ask them before embarking on a serious and well-targeted apprenticeship for you or your child.

Private English lessons: theory and practice - beginner and intermediate
School English classes are often very theoretical and not very interactive. This is why I offer a method ranging from basic practice to complete immersion, depending on your level and / or your development. I took English immersion courses for 4 years, in secondary school, and I found the technique motivating and very effective. I was able to carry on a daily conversation after only 4 months of learning! I also offer courses in the form of activities for the youngest, if they wish.

Acine
Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. 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. 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 a variety of social and interactive stimulus.. You may request a full refund and get your money after the first class if you think that this class does not suit you.

I worked as an English teacher for three years, and during that period of time I worked with diverse students, starting from kids to adults. Therefore I can teach any age.

Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.
