“Fluent Francophone” Language Coaching

I offer very personalized 1:1 coaching sessions to help intermediate to advanced learners who wish to improve their fluency in French to discuss about current societal issues, international relations and who wish to socialize with francophone peers with more confidence.

I also offer 1:1 personalized test preparation (DELF, DALF, TEF, TCF).

All coaching sessions are visioconference (or audio only if you prefer) from the comfort of your home or office with Zoom or Skype.

Package of lessons

You want regular lessons to improve your speaking skills and clear up some grammar points.

Pre-pay for a certain amount of hours (individual lessons will be between 30 to 60 minutes) and fit the lessons into your busy schedule.

Why pre-pay? It involves a certain amount of commitment and you’re more likely to set a time in your calendar for your French lesson and of coming ready to delve into what’s really preventing you from speaking at the level you wish.

In the first consult, we’ll start by talking about your motivation and goals. Then we’ll do a diagnostic conversation to evaluate what level you’re at, your strengths and weaknesses. Finally, we’ll discuss what you’ll do to reach your goals and how I will support you in the process to build your own learning road map.

In the following sessions we’ll work on improving your language skills and your fluency.

Individual Consult (book whenever you need)

You feel stuck and demotivated and need to reignite the spark to continue studying French and move on to the next level.

You’re studying a lot but you feel like you’re not progressing, you’re exhausted and looking for a road map to continue learning at your own pace.

You don’t have time to study but you need to. Let’s talk about how you could integrate more French into your daily life!

You speak French but don’t know what’s your level. You’d like honest feedback about your strengths and weakness and a plan to work on them.
