French native speaker giving casual spoken french lesson during dinners (for group or individuals) to be able to blend in France easily ! Perfect for prospective students in France or to strengthen yo

Methodology

My methodology is simple, I propose having dinner with you or fellow students at your place or other students places. We could cook french things, and talk about topics you've chosen the previous weeks, or simply let the conversation go :) A notebook can be of help to note few things to correct, or improve your languages skills !

Feeling maybe shy or not confident yet about your french ? If the conversation doesn't flow by itself, no worries, I got you covered :) Dinner can have semantic themes (like music, sports or even quantum physics) and practical themes (like comparison, past tense, accents, conditional facts...), most likely both ! You can choose the subject that you would like to talk about (and learn the appropriate vocabulary before or during the dinner). And/or choose the technical feature you'd like to practice (for future phds and postdoc in france, comparison and conditional forms might be really helpful !)

The aim is to be casual, to not overlap with other activities, and to share a moment speaking ACTUAL french (we can even cook some "omelette du fromage" !) :)

Experience

Salut ! Je m'appelle Louis et je suis étudiant ! (Disclaimer : no one would ever say that in french..!)

Hi ! I am a French student working in the department of Plant Sciences in Oxford. About me, I am a bit nerdy, I also play music (bass guitar, piano, cello, saxophone) and I am fond of science and cheese.

I am a native french speaker, and more specifically, I can speak old french, new french, old french slang, new slang, technical french, postmodern philosophy west-coast french, written french, polite french... Is it too much ? Yeah you're right, french is messy, complicated, and very specified. The worst part is that we write in a very specific way, and speak in a different way, and even sometimes we dare having accent !

I am here to help you get comfortable with casual and polite spoken french, the one you will hear in the street, in the work space, in the terasse etc. Indeed, it is quite likely that you only know the written french, which is formal and complicated. The spoken french has its own code, and with my teaching I will make you sound like a proper French (even getting the french accent) !

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : £12/h

Details

As we will meet, cook, eat and discuss, I assume it will take more than an hour ! I plan on saying the evening costs £20 per persons for groups (highly recommended) and £25 is you are alone (without including the ingredients for the recipe which we will split). And you got to stay and discuss as long as you want and enjoy a casual meal !

Also, as alcohol tend to untie the tongue, I recommend to bring your own booze ! ;)

à plus ! :)

Louis's CV

Both my parents are teachers/professors, and I thus inherited of a strong taste for pedagogy (and elbow patch jackets unfortunately...).

As I said, I speak the different french forms and know the difference between them, meaning that I can help you using the correct form/expression/rhythm to express something :) No worries, it is not *that* complicated, but it needs practice. As knowledge is the sum of one's mistakes, I am here to help you step by step solving your little "faux-pas" in a casual, mistake friendly environment.
