Bonjour!

I grew up about twenty minutes from the border with France and got to go there regularly from early on. I started learning French when I was 12 and started teaching it when I was 15 because, believe it or not, I enjoy the sometimes weird grammatical complexities of French.

At university I took advanced classes to continue learning and when I went to study in Canada I lived in a shared house with six native speakers of Canadian and European French. This year I spent the spring in Morocco and Togo where I got to experience two more varieties French.

I consider myself highly Francophile, enjoy reading in French and take pleasure in teaching it. Explaining grammar, spelling, pronunciation and difficult features of the language are my assets as I have been largely successful in sharing them with students, friends and acquaintances over the years.

Allons-y! :)

Having a teacher that doesn't only teach but also live the languages he speaks makes the learning experience with Viktor really fun and effective. Thank you so much!

Viktor is the best! Would definitely recommend for any language instruction needs.
Jakob
If you get a chance to learn with Viktor you can consider yourself very lucky! He tought me spanish for over a year before I went to Colombia and it was thanks to his help that I could get a good grip of the language so fast and am now fluent. What I found so special about him was the incredible combination of knowledge, teaching skills and personal warmth. In other words: You will learn a lot, in a very eficient manner and gain a friend at the same time! Thank´s a lot Viktor it was absolutely great to learn with you, I hope to see you soon!

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:

The first lesson with Meriem was great. I’ve been teaching myself French, and I have some pretty big gaps in basic knowledge. She did a great job helping me figure out what I need to work on. I look forward to more lessons.
Justin
I spent a couple of months having lessons with Meriem and I definitely enjoyed my time. I had some previous knowledge of French words and phrases from various online tools but I lacked the insight that an actual instructor could bring. It was extremely beneficial to talk to someone who could correct me and help me learn. I hope that I can start my lessons again soon.
Rocio S.
I loved my first lesson. Meriem encouraged me to use my French and I felt little by little more confident in the conversation. Looking forward to our next lesson.

I had the pleasure of learning higher intermediate/conversational French with Philippe last year for several weeks. I must say that he was the best French professor I ever had. He was extremely meticulous with his approach and took the time to understand my strengths and weaknesses and curated the course based on that. He understood that there were days when I was finding the right words and would take the lead in our conversations. Whereas, other days, he would let me lead the discussions. We discussed on topics related to politics, society, religion, science, travel and business. He was extremely polite, and professional and didn't impose any of his beliefs and stayed true to his goal of helping me improve my French skills. By the end of our session, I was able to make a presentation of my work in international development and global health with him in French. He even helped me translate my poem in French. In addition to providing me with the ears to understand spoken French better, and the ability to speak more correctly, he also immensely helped with grammar topics such as subjunctive, future, and conditional sentences. I provide my highest recommendation of Philippe and assure you that he will make your French learning experience the one to remember.
Brian
Lessons with Philippe are a true pleasure. He is well-read, articulate, and funny. He takes the time to get to know his students and focuses the lessons around conversations and areas of interest. I have experienced immense improvement to my vocabulary and grammar, as well as in my confidence to speak and "think in French." I most appreciate that Philippe is not shy about providing useful feedback or recognizing hard work and improvement. Would highly recommend.
Nox
I have been studying french with Philippe since October 2020 and have seen a remarkable improvement in my french. He is a very diligent teacher who makes the class very interesting. He tailors it to the student's interests and is easily able to identify areas that require improvement and focus on that. He has helped me with grammar, reading, and listing. I would highly recommend end him for anyone serious about improving french.

"At age 56, it is getting harder for me to remember a few things. Especially language. Even though I speak several languages(English, Spanish, Chinese), I find that French is the hardest one. I have been going to the classes offer by UNLV for several years, and I have been having the same teacher, Pascal. If you are asking me that if she is a great teacher? I think so. Otherwise, why am I still going, right?
I enjoy her class very much. She is fun to be around."

"Mademoiselle Schram is intuitive to the student’s needs as a learner of the French language. In the beginning and as one continues with studying she will ask what interest one has in the French language and tailor lessons in accordance to goals and French studies. Always there is a thread of excitement in relaying information and teaching that only an instructor that loves what he or she does…is able to convey to and through the student. There is a wonderful level of comfort one derives from being in Mademoiselle Schram’s presence that acts as an impetus of flow for easygoing and interesting learning, instruction, and information. Also, she is clear in pronunciation of French and will continually break down words that one may have trouble when listening with a foreign ear and speaking by imitation and repetition. Mademoiselle Schram is elegant of manner, intellect, and “je ne sais quoi” (uniqueness) of a French woman that incorporates well into study and overall learning. She is able to answer questions regarding culture and mannerisms of French people and way of life succinctly. She is exceedingly patient when one asks questions and always responds with a ready compelling answer. Mademoiselle Schram guides one as a student successfully by being perceptive in incorporating, suggesting, referencing French learning aids, websites, and or other instructional devices that take a student’s level of learning French to another level. She is precise and consistently responsible in meeting at the exact time set for learning no matter where a student is in the world. She is constantly present and focused in the time allotted for French learning. She is also well prepared beforehand with every instruction which offers a smooth flowing transition from one aspect of french to the next. Mademoiselle Schram does not disappoint…if anything she delivers…and delivers the entirety of French exceedingly well. Thank you always Mademoiselle Schram for all of the knowledge you impart. Ainsi, J’aime Mademoiselle Schram. Merci beaucoup!"

"Professor Jean-Luc is phenomenal. I think the material he has chosen to give lessons with is very clear and has helped me improve a lot. Before every lesson he makes sure to send you the material for the next class, which helps a lot specially when you are learning online. The main reason why I chose him is because he is a french native speaker, which was extremely important to me because all my life I had french teachers that weren't french, so my pronunciation was a little bit weird-- I feel that I have improved a lot these 4 months :). I started learning French when I was 11 years old and Professor Jean-Luc helped me refresh my mind--it is interesting how he helped me remember many small grammar and writing details. I am very satisfied! Thank you Professor."
