Methodology

We start the first class with a brief, but very necessary, presentation of both; then we evaluate your knowledge, identifying your strengths and weaknesses. We will then define what your reasons are for deciding to learn French and then design the programme - with classes best suited to your profile - to facilitate the correct learning of this language.

Together we will work in each class and in parallel the four skills necessary to master a language and required in all international texts: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, oral expression, and written expression.

We start by explaining the grammar rules very clearly and precisely, with expressions and key cards of the French vocabulary. To work on reading comprehension and oral expression, we will do readings in French (according to your level) and with this you will initiate a valuable contact with French culture; in addition, you will be able to have fun with easy to remember stories, and to familiarize yourself with the vocabulary of this language by means of direct association with drawings (in the case of those who are initiated in reading). Also, by reading French texts aloud, you will progressively improve your pronunciation and eliminate foreign accents.

Before the end of each class, I propose a dictation of ten sentences to exercise written expression and, to finish, I will recommend specific exercises according to the student's performance; likewise, I will recommend watching some animated television series and films to practice listening comprehension.

Watching cartoons in French is a highly recommended exercise to familiarise yourself with the vocabulary, associating it directly with the images and, at the same time, you will train your ear to the musicality of the French language, its correct pronunciation and to recognise the words. The cartoons are designed for children, so the characters speak slowly and clearly, and you will have the opportunity to learn everyday vocabulary and expressions. Also, if you are at a beginner's level, I advise you to watch films in the original version with subtitles in your native language and then, once you have watched them in the original version, I recommend you watch them with French subtitles.

Background

I learned French in my school days; I then continued my studies with constant preparation and application through self-training and the seasons I have been in France. I am a Master of Fine Art, I have knowledge and experience in the plastic emphasis, in the study of art history and aesthetics for the theoretical training of an artist. My relationship with the French language has also been exercised in translation: I have translated articles from magazines and art publications researching topics of interest to my professional training.

Besides art, I like to read and learn about some humanistic subjects. Because of my affinity with this universe, I include in my classes an intercultural component related to social aspects and French culture. I feel a great affection and vocation for the teaching experience, in fact, I give, in addition to French, piano lessons, Italian, Spanish and English.
