Improve your French and practice everyday conversation!
IMPORTANT FOR NEW STUDENTS: Accepting only conversation-level students. I don't accept beginners for moment, but only intermediate/advanced students who can have full conversations in French, which means we won't do any grammar or conjugation exercises. We'll have real-life discussions and I'll correct your accent, teach you idioms (and maybe some slang!), help you refine your grammar use, enrich your vocabulary, etc. If that is for you, send me a message! Bonjour & bienvenue! French is my native language and I would be happy to enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, as well as improve your accent to make you sound like a real French person! ---------------Frequently Asked Questions--------------- 1- What type of lessons would you recommend? Currently, I'm only teaching conversational classes so it's up to how much you like to chat :-) The majority of my students are taking 45 min lessons, but some prefer 30 or 60 min. If you're not sure, we can begin with 30 minutes and change to a longer class later, if you want. 2- Is scheduling flexible? Do I have to pick a specific day/time and stick with it? => I'm fairly flexible and I perfectly understand that your schedule may vary from week to week (and I hope you'll understand mine do too!). We can choose together a first-time slot to begin and then play it by ear. 3- Do you accept bi-weekly students? => Oui!
About Meriem B.

I'm a native French speaker, but I do understand the joy & challenges of approaching a new language, as I also learned English, Italian and Tunisian (dialect of Arabic). I moved from France to the USA in 2011. When I don't teach French, I'm busy drawing illustrations for private clients or designing costumes for operas. I've been teaching French privately to more than 50 students. I would like to share my love for this language and culture with more students. Takelessons has been an amazing tool for this so far! I'm looking forward to meeting you online. Merci et à bientôt! IMPORTANT FOR NEW STUDENTS: Accepting only conversation-level students.

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.

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.

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.
