Hello and welcome to my page !
My name is Célia, a native French teacher living in Germany. I have graduated of my master of French as a Foreign Language [teaching French to foreigners] in 2020 at the university of Paul-Valéry in Montpellier, and I became a DELF (A1-B2) corrector in 2022. I grew up in a small village next to Montpellier, and I have been living in Germany for the past 3 years.
During my master’s degree, I learned how to create didactic unit (lessons), exams, and how to use the CEFR (common European Framework of Reference for Languages). I have been teaching French online for the last 3 years to students ranging from level A1 to level B2, and students of all ages: children, teenagers, and adults. Whether you need some help with preparing an exam, want to build on your knowledge or just want to practice your oral skills, I am more than happy to help you!
During our first class, I will ask you: why you want to learn French, what are your goals, what are your interests, if you want to study one aspect of the language more than another, what is your current level of French etc. Our first conversation during our trial lesson will allow me to get an idea of your level and to prepare a plan for our next lessons. The resources I use are diverse: oral comprehension from the media, text comprehensions [studies of books, articles, extracts of text], grammar exercises etc. The resources are adapted to your level and your objectives. Most of the resources will be provided to you. I also provide a lesson file and homework for each lesson （- ＾ ▽ ＾ -).
My teaching method is mainly based on communicative and action-oriented approaches. My goal is to involve students as much as possible in their learning, to encourage them to express themselves as much as possible in French in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. I am aware that learning a language is not easy. Sometimes you fear making mistakes, but that's part of the learning process. I am here to help you gain self-confidence, encourage you and guide you on this journey of learning a language.
I am passionate about civilization and languages. Likewise, I love to share my culture with foreigners as I get to know theirs. I am sure we can find many interesting topics to discuss and build up your French skills quickly!
