Bonjour et Enchanté My name is Fabrice and I am excited that you are considering French lessons with me. French is not just a beautiful language, it is a culture and people rich in Liberté, Egalité, and Fraternité. With all of my students, we not only explore the richness of the language but also the expansiveness and depth of the culture, people, and of course the country. I am confident in my ability to help you learn French in easy and fun lessons. I have helped students of all ages, most of whom have little to no experience with the language. Today, many of these, same, students are well versed in conversational French and able to read, write, speak, and explore the language and culture in ways they didn’t imagine. I have also worked with students who have a good understanding of the language and wish to brush-up on their skills or work to perfect the language as a native speaker. I apply numerous strategies that will depend on how you like to learn, however, I always try to help students feel comfortable so that they can talk because talking is the basis of an enjoyable lesson. From there we discover new vocabulary, analyze grammatical structures, practice fluidness, pronunciation, and intonation. I enjoy exploring current and past events by using newspaper articles, extracts from books, videos, and songs. I also encourage you to submit any document you would like to study if you feel that it could be useful. By providing the documents in advance I can prepare an interesting lesson for you. À bientôt !
