You want to read and speak French fluently? I'm here to help you. I was born and raised in a french speaking country, I'm a very friendly person; I love to talk to my students because I believe that practice is the key to learning any language. All ages are welcome. My main focus is not only to help my students learn the basics of French with the correct grammar, but also teach them with the pronunciation and employment concepts.

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:
1) Teach you French from scratch,
2) Enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, or
3) Polish your accent to make you sound like a real French person!

---------------Frequently Asked Questions---------------

1- Are you interested in teaching beginners?

=> Of course! Actually, a lot of my students are beginners. It's fantastic to follow their progress and it's interesting to adapt the class a bit differently for each of them according to their preferences and abilities.

2- What type of lessons would you recommend?

=> For beginner or intermediate level: 60 min lessons
=> For advanced level: 30 min, 45 min or 60 min (100% conversation).
=> For kids: 45 to 60 min, depending how young and how are their focus capabilities.

3- Is scheduling flexible? Do I have to pick a specific day/time and stick with it?

=> I teach on ...

Meriem is great! I'm working with her to get better at conversational French and she has great advice for how to improve outside of class (recommending some specific French shows, trying to watch them with French subtitles), along with doing an amazing job in class! She is great at challenging me - we'll start talking on a specific topic but she doesn't "let go" after just 1-2 sentences, she really tries to go deep. She's also always punctual and reliable for our lessons.
Adam
Excellent teacher! Makes lessons conversational and fun!
Lisa
Meriem is really amazing! She taught my 9 yr old son french, who had no experience, with patience and joy, and really made it FUN.

She was timely and provided great homework & detail after each lesson to practice in between lessons. She was always responsive with any inquiries.

We would highly recommend Meriem and will be utilizing her services again in the future!

Basic french, beginner students will have a handle of survival French by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough French to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions.
If you want online class you must install Skype or Ovoo I don't have face time.

Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

When You Translate French to English Watch Out for These 3 Things

French is one of the most beautiful of the romance languages. Spoken as the official language in 29 countries, French is the second most widely spoken mother tongue in the European Union. Learning to speak and understand any language is a process of immersion. To truly understand and be able to translate French to English  means understanding French culture and the idiosyncrasies of the language. One highly effective method for truly understanding a language beyond simply speaking it …
