I am the most French cliche person you can meet in Los Angeles.
I am speaking English with a very thick accent, which will get you started right away, I have been living in America for 4 years so I deeply understand its culture.

I am funny but serious, classes with me will be very fulfilling but also entertaining and pleasant.

About Sophie B.


Like you could assume, I am French. I live here, in Los Angeles California.
I studied literature (French authors) and French poetry. I can teach you the high level French (the "classy way") or the basic French, everything is possible.
Do you want to find the most cliche ever French teacher you can have? I will be the one. Each of my friend always tell me "you are sooo French".

I am high energy, funny, smiling but I can be very serious when it is needed, and I can be, in order to teach you my native language.
I am comfortable teaching online or at your home, and I have been teaching for years, I love it, languages have always been my thing.
With me, we can get you to progress every week, quickly, all it needs is strong-willed. I will also guide you to some good typical French movies to watch (with English subtitles to start with).

Do you want to impress your American friends? I can help you with that! Do you want to impress a French girl or a French boy? I can help you with that too! Do you want some tips on how to date a French person? Sure! Do you want your child to become your biggest pride? I can help you in a heartbeat, believe me, no-one will speak French as good as her/him.

SO? Comment allons-nous faire? (How are we going to do?)
I will start with the basic (alphabet, numbers, grammar to be and to have... etc) if you are a beginner. If you are on a very advanced level, I will be happy to speak about Victor Hugo and Montaigne with you, and analyse their texts.

Will I have homework?
I am more than happy to give you some if you are willing to spend some time on it.

Will it be hard?
The first and second class, yes, but after that, you will be able to take the plunge!

I will teach you ANYTHING you want, from the most complicated high class vocabulary, to some difficult pronunciation words, to our culture and humour (no no, we do not have the same, what is funny for you is not for us).

A trip planned to France?
I am here to save you!

I can't wait to meet you and make you become an incredible French speaker!

Au revoir :)

Thanks to Sophie, I improved my French right before going to Paris for my internship.
Now, communication gets easier .
Will keep her as a teacher.
Merci infiniment...
