My name is Diane, I am from the French-speaking part of Switzerland and I am living in Greece at the moment.
I have been a French teacher for people claiming asylum in Switzerland for more than a year now, therefore I have good material for beginners wanting to start learning French. I have taught to groups of adults from A0 to B1 levels with great results! My methodology is quite flexible according to what my students prefer, though I like starting from daily-life situations (going grocery shopping, book an appointment at the doctor's, taking the train...) and elaborating on new vocabulary, grammar rules, verb tenses from that starting point. Reading some French simple texts, listening to French songs and/or playing games in French are also tools that I love using if you are interested in trying this out! I can also give homework if you want to work more on your own, and we can correct them together.
I love music and art in general, as well as reading so it would be my pleasure to introduce you to some of my favorite French-speaking artists!
In addition, I have been learning languages since a very young age and I am currently learning Greek, so I understand the challenges you might face regarding French! Be sure that my classes are a safe and benevolent environnement, designed to make you dare to speak and make mistakes; that's how you'll learn! ;)
I hope to meet you soon!

I already had a few lessons with Diane, it is always passing by with a nice atmosphere. She pays attention on which areas I would like to improve and which topics I would like to have the vocabulary. She adjusts the plan and even the style based on my feedback, e.g. if I want to be corrected on the fly when I speak or only at the end etc. I am glad to have her as my tutor.
