Are you looking to continue learning French? Do you have previous experience studying the language but want to make more progress towards fluency? Permettez-moi de vous aider!
I have been speaking French since 2007 when I began learning the language; I now have a C2 native level of fluency and a near-native accent. I lived in Paris where I studied French Linguistics and Anthropology at La Sorbonne and my degree from the University of Illinois in Chicago focused on bilingual education and French Literature.
My work as a program coordinator with a French international education company puts my in daily contact with French natives with whom I use a professional level of French. My work also requires that I maneuver a multitude of nuanced cultural information to successfully communicate with my clients.
I am a registered proctor for the European Consortium for the Certificate of Attainment in Modern Languages (ECL) French Language proficiency exam through the University of Paocs' Foreign Language Center. This certification allows to accurately and officially assess your speaking, listening, reading, and writing abilities in the French language.
Whether an advanced beginner, intermediate, or advanced student, I can help you begin and continue your studies. We will focus on verbal and written fluency through conversation, reading of literature and news, movies, music, and pronunciation training. Depending on your proficiency level, you can choose to focus on just one of these areas or you can opt for a more comprehensive approach.
While I am not a native speaker, I am fluent in the language. My studies have also given me a thorough and comprehensive mastery of the grammar; being a native English speaker, I am also aware of the faults many English-speaking learners of French make and can therefore preemptively address these common mistakes.
