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 !

About Fabrice K.

Bonjour!

Native to Le Mans, France, the rillettes region, I began my teaching career in 2014, using both the online and in-person platforms. I have also worked in an independent private school and in a liberal arts college as an advanced French teacher in New York State. Before my teaching career, I had a career in the automotive industry in France, was a small business owner in Florida, and worked as a marketing and business consultant, in California. I have been in the United States since 2008 and love any opportunity to share my language, culture, and experiences.

À Bientôt. I am here to answer any questions you may have, just ask!

Fabrice.

Fabrice is the ultimate French teacher. He’s a native speaker who brings, not only language, but wonderful tidbits of French culture to learning experience. He has geared tutoring sessions to meet my needs and interests. He is knowledgeable, interesting and funny. You won’t be disappointed!

I started taking French lessons with Fabrice three years ago when I was planning a trip to France to visit my in-law’s. After about three weeks, I had the confidence and basic language skills to feel comfortable speaking to native French speakers. About one month before my trip, I was speaking French pretty much fluently. Fabrice is personable, kind and very passionate about teaching French. His strategies, weekly challenges and attention to detail really have made this an enjoyable experience that I have continued with him for the past 3 years. Merci beaucoup Fabrice for being an awesome, qualified and competent French teacher. I recommend Fabrice without hesitation.

I have been taught French by Fabrice for over a year. After trying several different ways and programs to learn French over the past 4 years, I now know how valuable a good teacher in a foreign language is. I chose Fabrice on purpose because he is French and has a French accent that is easy to understand. He is awesome! Fabrice is always meeting my need where it is with written, spoken, and visual aids along with tips and shortcuts where appropriate. He is very astute at assessing my weaknesses and building on my strengths and always patient. I am not only learning the language, I am learning the culture. Fabrice is highly recommended!

The lesson today was very valuable and challenging. We worked on things that were top of my mind to go forward and Fabrice spent a good deal of time laying a solid ground in pronunciation and conversation.

Fabrice was wonderful to teach me what I needed by reviewing with me what I already knew. The lesson was challenging yet given at a pace that was not overwhelming. Great lesson!

Taught in French. I have designed this course to study from a comparative perspective, a broad cultural survey of 21st century France and its changing identity in a globalized world. As necessary background, the course surveys briefly recent historical traumas of the 20th century whose unresolved legacies affect French reactions within its borders and in the international community. Special emphasis on France’s cultural and political perceptions of the United States
