I have an extensive experience as a French tutor for adults, my competences also include the business related language. Furthermore, my many volunteering activities, working in the development of educational programs in Burkina Faso and Senegal led me to have a great ability in communication and I’m also much more flexible. I teach any level of French, from beginners to advanced students and all my courses are organized according to your aims and goals. I always build a program to help you reach your aims, based on communication, and also with exercises to reinforce the points which need to be improved.In my opinion, the immersion stay is the best way to improve your French from the grammar to the conversation and moreover you’ll be able to practice the language in an authentic manner through a combination of speaking and culture.
The lessons are always in French but, since I’m bilingual – I also speak English, I could help you with grammatical comprehension or with some English expressions too.We will speak and interact as much as possible during our lessons and, at the same time, we will share some delicious recipes and we will discover the region together with me as your guide.During your homestay French immersion in Lille, you will have your French classes in the morning. If you come with a friend and you have the same level of French, we could have lessons as small groups. I’ll use all my competences to make sure you get to master the French language as quickly as possible.
