Private French Teacher

French is my second language, but it often feels as it if were the first, as I have been speaking it for so many years on an everyday, educational, and professional basis. I have official native-level proficiency. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). Culture is also a big part of learning a language, and I am well versed in French literature, pop culture, idioms, and more.
Recently, one of my first TakeLessons students passed her B2 exam, which allows her to apply to French universities. It's not an easy exam, the culmination of several years of classes and several months of test-prepping.
I edited a 240-page scholarly book in French, "De La Case A La Villa" (published 2014), and have spoken on French-language television and at professional conferences.
I give both private and group lessons.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! Yay! We can start in-person lessons again, as long as basic distancing is kept. I have been vaccinated and I would prefer my students to be vaccinated, too, but it's not a deal breaker. I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speaker

I have been a student with Diane for the last few years and she is the best French teacher I have ever had. Not only is she an amazing teacher but she is also genuinely fun to be with. This year, Diane helped me pass the French B2 Certification exam - she provided me with all the resources I could have ever hoped for, and I really couldn't have done it without her! I highly recommend her for anyone

I teach children and adults from beginner to upper intermediate level. I studied the language for a year at a French institution and then I went to France to improve my skills. I want my students to learn a great variety of vocabulary and to feel comfortable in speaking the language.

My teaching philosophy is learning can be fun! I use didactic material to teach the language.

Private French Teacher

I been teaching English and French for 10 years now. I began learning in high school so I understand the challenges English speakers and others face learning the language. I studied English and French at Vanderbilt University in the USA. I have lived and worked in France for a total of 2.5 years. My students have ranged from 5 to 60 years of age. I have been able to learn what techniques help with pronunciation and as memory aids for those learning later in life. I still speak French on a daily basis. I have also visited other French speaking countries and can help learners embrace their aspirations and navigate new places.

Kahina
Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

Private French Teacher

I teach French since 1973. I am a French native speaker and I do teach and tutor privately. I did teach in schools since November 2016-July 2017 at the Fort Bend Christian Academy. My students were 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. My teaching experience started teaching my students about Le Petit Prince. This marvelous story caught on very fast the imagination and desire to learn French in all my students. Never failed! I teach students to speak French and not to just read from a book.
I have always been a member of the Alliance Francaise in Curacao and I did study methodology on how to teach French as second language at the French island of Guadeloupe, at L'Ecole Normale, at Pointe-a-Pitre, in 1975, sent by the Alliance Francaise of Curacao.

About Robert

My name is Robert M. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from Curacao, a beautiful island that once was part of The Netherlands and I started teaching in 1973. So far I have been teaching Spanish for 12 years. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute

"My 9 year old son has had French lessons once a week with Elsa for the last 3 years both in person and currently online. From the start it was clear, Elsa is a highly skilled and accredited teacher for children. Each lesson starts with a song which kick starts my son’s engagement. The hour-long class has a fun pace to it and is well structured to balance learning & fun. Elsa is also very kind and good humored which makes my son relish his classes. Watching him gain confidence in his French language skills has been so rewarding. I am extremely grateful to have found such an exceptional French tutor as Elsa."

I have previously taken French classes with different institutions and numerous instructors, and I evaluate Philippe as being one of the best if not the best instructor I have ever had. I base it on the way I am currently performing with all 3 skills (Speaking, Reading , and Writing). The best part is that I feel relaxed and confident in class. Philippe knows how to work with a student to get the best out of you, without affecting confidence. Tremendous skill. I highly recommend Philippe as an instructor for French."

French Jokes to Make You Laugh

Humor is one of those concepts that is impossible to translate literally. So much more depends on the jokes told than the mere words used. Nuances and cultural context add invisible layers that can trip non-native speakers up. In the past, when I watched humoristes (comedians) with my family and even when I understood the words, often, the punchline fell flat. I’d sit there wondering how those around me were giggling. As time passed, I began to find myself also amused as opposed to bewildered. …
