Bonjour Bonjour; You're maybe planning to travel to France for Business or for vacations...Or you just want to learn French for Academic or professional reasons! My name is Hicham (Here the French spelling of my first name make it sound "HiTChem" in English speaking countries - which i find awful to hear :) so the exact spelling to pronounce it right should be Heesham). And this is the perfect example that Pronounciation is one of the most important matter in French learning; not only for you to be able to understand French words and learn them, but also and mostly to be able to be understood when you speak them. Just like it's hard to understand a new english speaker with a strong foreign accent Imagine: "Un ver vert va vers un verre vert". Which means that a green worm is going towards a green glass. This doesn't make any sense but it illustrates what we call Homonymes. The word homonyme comes from Latin, more specifically as "Homos" (similar) and "onoma" (name). And it get more complicated when Homophones have the same pronounciation but not the same meaning nor the same spelling. Or worst; "Homographes" which are written the same spelling but complete different meaning and pronounciation. And finally the most tricky ones are the perfect Homonymes like:" un TOUR de magie" and la TOUR d'un chateau. (Magic trick and Castle Tower)... But don't worry - You don't need to understand what the Oceans are made of to be able to swim. And this is here I come. I am born in France (born in 1978 in Orleans) - studied in France, Teach French in Morocco, UK, Spain and Italy for Communication Business purposes. I used to teach Sales in French to Non-native French speaker Callcenter Agents in the Philippines lately. Been teaching in English. Yes I have been learning and practicing English since 2012 and I am now perfectly fluent with an accent which is not French :) Yay :) And my role as your French teacher will be to give you the perfect coaching to make you improve your French skills just like I did in French and other languages. Yes, I am the perfect example that anyone can learn a new language and become like a native one. I'm proud when I meet french people speaking english together when they cannot notice my accent and don't know I'm from France until I tell them. Of course, I will provide you all the Grammar, Conjugaison, Orthographe and all the basics modules from the French Academy you need to practice and have a proper French conversation. But not only, I garantee you that you will be able to sing in French.(it will develop your French ear and your pronounciation) My classes are customized for one to one classes or small group of people who want to have a real follow up on your learning evolution. From beginner to advance. It will include private sessions, customized exercises, funny home work... one to one conversations, French songs :) Yes I will sing too.
