ENGLISH LANGUAGE HOMESCHOOLING: For Adolescents & Teens
English Language Homeschooling (for students aged 13-15 years old, face-to-face only) is the education of school-aged children at home or a variety of places other than school. Many homeschool families prefer less formal, more personalized and individualized methods of learning that are not always found in schools. It has a vast range of advantages for learners of English as a second or third language. Distant English Language Homeschooling (for students aged 15-17 years old, with a basic understanding of English) which generally refers to the arrangement where the student is educated online, rather than being educated face-to-face, due to movement, health or time limitations. **NOTE: For ethical and developmental purposes, Distant English Language Homeschooling is NOT offered to teenagers under 15 years old that do not already live in an Anglophone environment.** Points for improvement focus on: -Time tense meanings and usage -Vocabulary nuances -Assistance with school-administered homework & academic documents/assignments -Developing speaking skills for socializing/presentations/traveling -Test-taking

Voulez-vous parler la langue de Molière avec fluidité ? N'hésitez pas à me contacter !
Salut, avant tout je me présente. Je me nomme Majda, une jeune fille marocaine, assistante de conversation française à Barcelone, puis à Madrid. D'ailleurs, j'avais suivi mes études supérieures à l'Université Ibn Tofail (au Maroc), et après avoir eu en fin de cursus un diplôme de la licence fondamentale du département de langue et littérature françaises, option linguistique, j'ai pu commencer mon stage d'assistanat à l'étranger (en Espagne). En effet, j'enseigne mes cours de français aux étudiants qui ont une volonté de réussir et qui s'intéressent à apprendre petit à petit les bases de la langue, pour pouvoir par la suite les utiliser au cours d'une très vive conversation.
