Kevin
Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

Italian lessons and lessons for foreigners at all levels
I am a teacher and tutor of Italian Language for Foreigners with the DITALS certification (Certificate of proficiency in teaching Italian for foreigners) from the University for Foreigners of Siena (Italy). The course and my method of teaching the language are based on a communicative approach: the student will learn the language gradually by using it and communicating in a real language and not abstract. To achieve this goal, many activities will be offered using authentic teaching materials such as newspaper articles, pages from novels, movie scenes, song lyrics and many more.

Manon
French literature from the Middle Ages to today, French & methodology
We are constantly surrounded by books. Just when we open a dictionary in elementary school, it is filled with history. This love of literature, I pass it on to you during my course For me, literature is an essential discipline for understanding the world around us and its evolution through new points of view and unprecedented testimonies. The great classics of literature is the best way to learn about the great changes and currents of thought in France from the Middle Ages to today. The French courses given in college and high school are introductions to literature. They consist of text studies, grammar questions or various questions around literature in general. This material leads to practical exercises such as the essay or text commentary. However, they are not always complete for us and it is difficult to see certain authors who are nevertheless part of the literary pantheon. In order to deepen your literary culture, I offer you an immersion in the best known and least known texts of Rabelais via Voltaire and Cyrano de Bergerac until going to Laurent Gaudé or Simone de Beauvoir. Through theoretical courses (methodology, literary history, discovery of authors) and practices (comments, discussions around an author or an author and comparative literature), I accompany you in your (re)discovery of French literature. .
