Native French Speaker Tutor - Language Acquisition Method
italki teacher since Jan 13, 2022
Hello! My name is Dorothée :)
I am a native French speaker tutor born and raised in Brussels (Belgium). I love travelling and discovering new languages, cultures and habits! I've lived, studied and worked in 4 different countries so far. I hold a Master's degree in Communication and Information Sciences from Tilburg University (Netherlands). Therefore I know that the way you communicate a message is as important as the message itself. I've also studied Latin ancient literature and word etymology for 6 years. Meanwhile, I've worked as an official translator for 4 years (FR-EN).
I speak French (native), English (IELTS - C2), Dutch (B2), Romanian (B2) and I'm currently learning Portuguese!
Me as a Teacher
Language is what can make two complete strangers feel like brothers and sisters in a minute.
The more languages you learn, the more tools you have to meet and interact with people on this planet! My online courses are meant to be interactive and informal. They are based on Stephen Krashen’s Language Acquisition ("Natural Way of Communication"), customized and targetting people who want to kick-start the French language with strong basics, in order to manage themselves in their daily life. I also help the persons who want to chat to maintain their level (conversation tutoring for intermediate to advanced level students). Finally, I can help you with the preparation of homeworks and exams.
My lessons & teaching style
Why you should book a class with me :
=> If you're looking for an untraditional course, informal and interactive ;
=> If you're looking for a customized course, tailor-made just for you ;
=> If you're just starting with French language and want to talk and understand basic concepts quickly ;
=> If you focus on learning French on a practical level (go to groceries, introduce yourself...) ;
=> If your main objective is to practice the language, without having the fear of making mistakes ;
=> If you are tired of people teaching about the language, instead of actually teaching the language ;
=> If you know French already, and want to excel in it!
N.B. My courses are children friendly!
