italki teacher since May 7, 2021
I am a young graduate (master of modern literature) in Paris and I am interested in everything that concerns languages and their poetic expression, whether in literature or in the arts in general.
After living in Switzerland until the age of 19, I came to study French literature and humanities in Paris, where I have been living for over 5 years now. I find it very important and interesting to discover new cultures and to discuss with people from different countries, especially through the prism of language.
Me as a Teacher
I come from a country, Switzerland, where there are three national languages and where confrontation with other languages than one's own is something that is integrated in one's daily life and in the culture in general. I lived in Berlin for a while and gave several german and french lessons during my studies in Paris. I am very patient, very calm, and I will encourage you to speak. I find that this is the best way to realize that you can master a language by correcting your mistakes. Understanding and integrating a language by practicing it is a very attainable goal and I hope that we can help you progress by having fun and learning together!
My lessons & teaching style
Having learned other languages, such as German and English, I know that it can be scary to speak, especially during the first lesson. But it gets easier after that. During our conversations, we can cover a wide variety of topics depending on your level, such as travel, culture or movies. We can debate, prepare you for job interviews, study any specific vocabulary, really anything that interests you! We can have simple conversations together without pressure or, if you prefer, i can offer you more structured lessons where we will look at your French difficulties and try to overcome them. I will send you corrections or notes at the end or after class. Don't hesitate to write :)
I had an excellent conversation in French with Camil. He is a very good conversationalist. He asks good questions and knows a lot about littérature, politics, and current events. He’s a good, patient listener and made me feel comfortable speaking.

Aujourd'hui Camil m'a appris les sens de quelques mots dificiles pour les anglophones. Maintenant, je sais pas utiliser certain mots, car ils sont des anglicismes.
Today Camil taught me about the meaning of a few difficult French words. Now I know to avoid certain English false friends in French. Thanks, Camil!
