French for expats
Don't be lost in translation!
You live in Brussels and feel your level of French doesn't allow you to enjoy fully your life here?
You have basic notions of French but not enough to hold a conversation?
You know French quite well but don't feel confident to use it in everyday life?
Or you just want to practice more spoken French with a native speaker?
I'm here to help!
Conversation for expats
Tuesday: on Zoom
Thursday: in classroom
18h-19h: A2- B1
19h-20h: B2- C1
3-6 students each class.
This class is for adults from 16 years old.
How does it work?
Each class, we will discuss a topic related to everyday life in Brussels or current news. Students discuss based on a list of questions or do role plays in specific situations. I will fix your pronunciation, provide you with necessary vocabulary and grammar to upgrade your French speaking skills. I also act as a facilitator to keep the conversation going and make sure everyone participates in the discussion.
At the end of the class, I will provide each student my personalized feedback and what they can improve for the next session.
About the teacher
My name is Gilles
I was born here in Brussels and will be happy to share some French with you. The language may seem difficult but it's more fun than you think! I've been teaching French to expats for more than 10 years. Now I focus on teaching in the classroom and online, following the students' needs. Of course a cup of coffee is always available for you in the classroom!
WHAT MY STUDENTS SAY
I really appreciate Gilles as a language teacher, as languages are clearly a great passion for him. He is a very efficient and pleasant language coach. Beyond learning languages, I look forward to each lesson, because I also appreciate the exchange with him and his always open attitude.
Merci Gilles pour tes leçons vivantes et toujours intéressantes
! Tu m'as aussi bien aidé quand j'ai lancé mon entreprise ici, notammment dans toutes les tracasseries administratives aux mots compliqués !
I realized how many mistakes I made when speaking French by having conversational classes with Gilles! It's hard to use 'le', 'la' and to conjugate some verbs. Gilles patiently wrote down my errors and explained them all to me.
Gilles gives lively lessons, always based on real life and he adapts the topics to the student's needs. I wanted to have help with paperwork and he spent two lessons until I could finally get it done. And he also knows some Japanese which makes the communication smoother!
