Getting Inspired to Learn French in Charlotte

French is an absolutely beautiful language, but it doesn’t always come easily to English speakers. If you are just getting started with French lessons in Charlotte, you may start to feel overwhelmed with everything you have to learn. Fortunately, there are several ways to stay inspired to learn more and push yourself further in your lessons.

French Cuisine

Learning French isn’t just about the language, it’s about the culture, too. And if there is one thing the French are famous for, it is their exquisite food. Spending some time in French restaurants will get you excited about learning the language, so that someday you may be able to sit at a charming café in the middle of Paris.

When you're out at a French restaurant in Charlotte, be sure to ask if any of the staff are fluent in the language. This could give you a nice way to practice ordering food, one of the most fundamental parts of learning a language. - Georges Brasserie has some of the best selection of French foods in town. From specialty dishes to more traditional menu items to not-really-French food (like fries), you have a wide selection to choose from. - Lumiere is a unique representation of how other nations imitate and change French dishes and make those dishes their own. Plan to spend an enjoyable dinner tasting a different twist on traditional French dishes. - French cuisine may be excellent, but it is the country’s breads and pastries for which it is really known, and Amélie's French Bakery & Café can give you just that. They strive to adapt a more authentic French atmosphere, as well as create exquisite pastries. You will likely want to return for more on a regular basis.

French Meetups

If you really want to put what you’ve learned during your French lessons in Charlotte to good use, you can join a French language meetup to meet other French language enthusiasts in your area. For example, The Charlotte French & Francophone Meetup Group is a great option. With over 600 members, you are sure to find people on the same skill level as you so that you can start practicing. Lessons are a great start, but you really have to practice the language to improve your skills.

Charlotte Language Exchange

If you are too shy to join the group or if you want to take a more focused approach to practicing the language, the Charlotte Language Exchange is a fantastic way to find native French speakers. The site helps people find other individuals who are native speakers of the language they want to learn. You can browse the site and find a native French speaker who is interested in improving their English. Contact can be made over emails, texts, or in person.

 

Taking French lessons in Charlotte is a great starting point to becoming fluent in the language, but you definitely need a bit more than regular lessons to become fluent. Sometimes, all you need is a little inspiration to keep you going. Fortunately, Charlotte has a number of different ways for you to stay actively engaged in improving your skills.

Starting out as a complete beginner in French, Marie took the time to make sure the pace and style of tutoring was right for me. Now, I'm grasping the language quicker than I ever thought I would. Marie makes our lessons very comprehensive and fun, I would highly recommend her!!

With pleasure I recommend Ms Marie (as the children knew and loved her for the past two years) for her devoted work at Wee Care preschool. She was very supportive and she assisted me with instructional responsibilities during the last year. She has compassionate attitude to the kids and strong understanding of child development plus to her excellent communication skills.

I am currently enrolled in my final year of secondary school and have a wide range of experiences that make me qualified for this role. I have been volunteering as a French and mathematics tutor since January 2015 (at Lester B Pearson). Through this experience, I learned how to personally tailor curriculums for individual students to help them in their studies.

Hey there! I'm Amanda! Let's work together on your goals towards learning French! Unlike everyone else listed here, I am not a language teacher, I am a language COACH. It's 2018; let's learn languages like it's the 21st century! As a PhD candidate at the University of Florida studying Linguistics, I have studied all the best ways to learn a language and would love to share my passion with you!

As your coach, I'll help you focus on your goals and hold you accountable for accomplishing them. I promote student agency and will help you to make your own choices about your own learning; this way each lesson fits your individual needs and differences. As your own language and success coach, we will not only work together to understand the target language vocabulary and grammar, but we will also delve into the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to study quickly and efficiently, feel comfortable speaking the language, and get ahead in other areas of your life as well!

About Amanda
Hi there! I'm Amanda!

Congratulations on starting/continuing your language journey in French! I would love to join you! I'm a PhD student at the University of Florida studying Linguistics with a specialization in Second Language Acquisition (aka the best ways to learn languages)!!! Different, from the other individuals listed here, I am not a language teacher, I am a language COACH. It's time to learn a language like it's the 21st century! Let's work together to reach your goals!

What is a language coach?

As a language couch, I enable students to focus on their goals and hold them accountable for accomplishing them. I promote student agency and allow students to make choices about their own learning; this way each lesson fits their individual needs and differences. As your own language and success coach, we will not only work t
ogether to understand the target language vocabulary and grammar, but we will also delve into the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to study quickly and efficiently, feel comfortable speaking the language, and get ahead in other areas of your life as well!

My mission for each lesson is to provide a language learning experience unique in its approach to incorporate strategy instruction including reducing foreign language anxiety, building agency, and developing self-regulated learning skills. My coaching objective is to help learners reach their second language goals through not only language teaching, but student empowerment as well. I aim to help students realize and build their own agency, resulting in a self-actualized, relaxed, and engaged learning environment. Through this one-of-a-kind coaching method, success is having my students end each tutoring session feeling positive, and eventually ending tutoring sessions all together knowing that they are competent, intelligible, and composed speakers of the target language.

I have been an language instructor and coach since 2009 teaching children English in France through the TAPIF program. I have taught/coached undergraduates French at both the Ohio University (where I earned my BA and MA in French) and the University of Florida (where I am earning my PhD in Linguistics). Further, I have taught English as a Second Language at the University of Florida as well as Santa Fe College.

As a researcher, I have focused my life's work and dissertation on the topic of lowering Foreign Language Anxiety in foreign language learners. Foreign Language Anxiety is often cited as the number 1 correlation to achievement in acquiring the target language. Do you get nervous when you attempt to speak the language that you've learned? Are you scared what others are going to think of you? Do you have perfectionist tendencies? Well, helping you manage Foreign Language Anxiety while learning French would be exactly my skill set!

While I am a seasoned, SLAT (Second Language Acquisition and Teaching) certified instructor and am able to teach at the university level, tutoring is my true passion. I began tutoring in 2008 at Ohio University and I have not stopped since. My youngest tutee was 4 years old and my oldest tutee, who is still working with me, is 72 years old. I can cater to all ages, language levels, individual differences, objectives and goals, attitudes, and motivation levels. Send me a message with any questions that you have and we can chat and set some goals for your language learning journey.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you in any way possible in the world of French! Talk to you soon! :)

This was our first lesson, but Amanda put me at ease immediately. She is highly intelligent and was able to set a clear picture on how I can shape my own lessons based on my learning style. I am very excited to work with her in the future and would recommend her to anyone.

Amanda is the best tutor ever! She has a very patient and compassionate way of teaching. She makes learning a new language fun and not fearful.

I am a native French speaker with a several years of experience in teaching French. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.

I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Nice, France. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to NYC. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored French to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and French subjects.

I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker, I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities.

As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting.
