****CURRENTLY TAKING NEW A2+/B1/B2/C1/C2 STUDENTS****
My name is Edouard, I am a certified French teacher and I have been teaching French to foreigners since 2006. Teaching French is my passion and my full-time job, and I will make sure you get excellent results.
I'm specialized in teaching French to intermediate/advanced learners who want to bring their French to the next level - fast. My goal is to get you to fluency as quickly as possible.
Spending time listening to and reading authentic material is key to improving fast. For this, I will give you a weekly schedule that will help you stay on target and improve in between classes.
To take on lessons with me, you will need at least an upper beginner level (A2+) and dedicate a minimum of 15 to 30 minutes every day to reading, listening, or watching programs in French. My program is best suited for people who are very motivated and have a definite goal of speaking the language fluently within one year.
Here are 5 principles that will help you improve your French really fast so you can take the next step in your life:
1 - LANGUAGE IMMERSION: I prefer using authentic documents during my lessons and in-between classes to make sure that you are learning French we actually speak in France. If you are also preparing for an exam (DELF, DALF, etc.), we will use some material used for these exams.
2 - ACTIVE COMMUNICATION: my lessons are made so that YOU are the one doing the talking. This is the best way for you to reach fluency fast. Also, I only speak in French during the class (I use English sparingly to "unlock" difficult concepts if needed)
3 - CUSTOMIZATION: You will learn faster if you are interested in the material. What's your passion? Sports, travel, cinema, dance? Feel free to communicate and I will adapt my lessons to your needs.
4 - DELAYED ERROR CORRECTION: Find out what wasn't correct later. I will provide you with personalized feedback at the end of our lesson, highlighting your main mistakes and how to correct them.
5 - SHARING MY OWN EXPERIENCE AS A LANGUAGE LEARNER: I will share my tricks and tips that helped me to master both English and Portuguese at a proficient level.
To start learning French effectively, make sure you have:
1. A stable internet connection;
2. Good quality audio equipment. A headset is ideal so that we can hear each other properly;
3. A quiet place and a rested mind.
