Dear future student,

My name is Mélanie, I am 40 years old, I am Belgian and I live near Brussels in Belgium.

I have 7 years of experience in teaching French as a foreign language. I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature. I have an agrégation in higher secondary education. French is my mother tongue. Additionally I have a C2 level in Spanish.

I have taught adults (beginner - advanced) in various training institutions (CLL, CVO Semper, ...). I have taught both large and small groups. I can therefore adapt my teaching methods according to the number of people.

As far as my teaching methods are concerned, I create communicative exercises.
I always try to get the student to express themselves as much as possible. In case of groups, I create individual exercises, in groups of two or four.
I give homework in which the students have to write a short text related to a grammatical concept they have seen. I also give additional grammatical exercises.
I also test my students' knowledge. For example, during the course, I listen to my students and comment on their oral productions. I also do small listening comprehensions and reading comprehensions.
I can also explain certain grammatical points or translate certain words into the student's language if it is needed, but generally I always try to teach in the target language.

If my student is looking for a job, I can also help him/her to write his/her CV and cover letter and also prepare his/her interview.
If my student works in a company, I can also prepare exercises specific to the company's field. I have given courses to warehouse workers for Delhaize, to plumbers, to students in Tourism.
I also taught asylum seekers.

As far as teaching material is concerned, I use a lot of material from Zexperts fle https://leszexpertsfle.com/toutes-les-ressources-fle/ which I adapt to the objectives of the lesson. I also look for exercises in FLE manuals such as Totem, Edito, Alter Ego, Expression orale... Naturally, I adapt the exercises according to the needs of the student. I also look for songs in YouTube.

Hi!

My name is Noelia Nova, and I am a Spanish Teacher. I have been working as a teacher for more than four years and I have a Postgraduate Diploma and Master's Degree in teaching Spanish. Furthermore, I have an accreditation course for DELE examination by Instituto Cervantes.

My classes are very dynamic and I use a communicative approach to allow you to communicate in Spanish from the very first day!
In my classes we will see grammatical aspects but from a communicative and practical approach.

Moreover, I am specialized in teaching and improve written expression. If you have any kind of problem when writing in Spanish, send me a message, and we will work on that!

I found CoLanguage accidentally when I was searching for online private lessons to improve my spanish skills which had diminished a bit since my stay abroad two years ago (B2+ level). After the free trial with Noelia (where we talked about my objectives and her learning methods and got to know each other) I was already so blessed and motivated! Her lessons are well-structured, she is really flexible, patient, reacts to sentences spoken and directly helps to rephrase mistakes/sentences. I am able to repeat and learn grammar/vocabularies and at the same time we have good conversations which makes my speaking more fluent again. She visualizes everything while speaking which makes it easy to follow. I am really looking forward to continue learning Spanish with her!

My name is Anna and I graduated in 2016 from Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona with a BA in English and Spanish Studies and a Master in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language in Universidad de Barcelona and Universidad Pompeu Fabra.

I worked as Spanish teacher in different languges schools and I also made collaboration as an Online Spanish teacher with Groningen University. In all my experiences as a teacher I have always tried to make students enjoy classes as much as possible so that their learning is positive.

In my classes I try to teach in a didactic way based on a more communicative approach although I always adapt to the needs of the students.

If you want to learn Spanish do not hesitate to sign up and we will have a good time;)

I offer personalized English classes which are really suitable to the student's level and motivations.
I work equally the four main skills of the language throughout authentic materials such as songs, videos, movies or short films and even magazines and newspapers articles. I also combine my classes with course books whose levels are challenging enough to help the students to make an accurate and confident learning progress.
I offer grammar and vocabulary exercises and activities to help the students to enrich the language's development.
My classes are online within reduced groups of students to maintain classes well balanced and entertaining enough. I also offer individual lessons.
The duration of the classes are ideally 60 minutes long.

I am a native English language teacher from Ireland. I have the highly acclaimed accreditation of CELTA. I have been living and teaching in Spain for the past 2 years. I specialise in medical English and in exam preparation. I have trained others to become teachers through the TEFL scheme. My students have been very successful in their exams and I have a brilliant track record. I teach all levels and employ different methods, depending on my student's level of comprehension and their objectives. So for example, if I had a juvenile A1 student, I would play games, use flash cards, keep the class dynamic and I would change activity regularly. This helps to hold their attention and keeps them engaged. Their following lesson then touches on revision and progression. If I had a C1 student, I would help them to work on their exam preparation skills and especially their grammar and speaking skills, I would also teach them specific terminology for their area of study/career.
I adore teaching, I am an excellent teacher and I can definitely help to make English easy for you. I am friendly, engaging and I can mimic different accents! :) I can teach British or American English.
I hope to welcome you to my class soon.

Hi. I´m Víctor, your Spanish teacher. Even though I come from Alicante (Spain), I spent the last ten years in Poland. I know not only from my own experience how dificult it is to learn a new langauge. I know how it feels when you don´t speak perfectly and you have to break your fear to actually communicate with a foreigner. I will help you to crush this fear. With me, you can be sure that you will talk without fear.

I don´t have a fixed methodology. I believe in flexibility and adjusting the method to the needs, expectations and goals of each student. You can be sure that with all the materials I have gathered, I will use the most adequate resources to your needs.

For me the most important aspect of learning the language is the communication. I put emphasis on speaking, but I don´t forget about other skills. If you want to prepare yourself for DELE exam, you can count on me. I have experience in preparation (with success) for all levels of DELE.

Hi, I'm Dajana, I'm 31 years old and I come from Naples.
I am graduated in Foreign Languages and Litteratures and I have a II Level Master degree in Teaching Italian as Second Language.

I have teached italian to foreign people, above all adults at any age, in several NGOs and social cooperatives in the last 4 years.

How will I teach you italian? By playing!
I know that studying a language by reading a grammar book and mechanically completing the attached exercises can be boring and above all does not train your mind.

Learning instead should be a pleasure, so I like to use small funny videos, songs, puzzles and so on.
I also prefer the inductive method so that you can understand how Italian works on your own and then fix the grammatical rules together.
That way you’ll learn Italian without even realizing it!

But all this depends on you and how you prefer to study. I will be very happy to adopt the method that suits your case. The most important thing is that you get your goals with pleasure!

Don’t you think studying can be a pleasure? Join me and you’ll find out!

Cheers,
Dajana

Hello everyone!
My name is Lucia and I have been teaching English for 13 years now.
I am a CELTA and CELTYL qualified senior language trainer, a mentor and a qualified teacher trainer as well.

I absolutely love teaching English in a fun, engaging manner that is appealing to all my students. I like discussing all lessons with students so that each course can meet their needs at every moment.

Lessons should be relaxing, motivating and enjoyable and I always like to hear my students say at the end of the lesson:
"Hey! Teacher! When did this lesson finish? It feels like we've just started!"

So, if you would like to learn English, prepare for your Cambridge exam, or just improve your communications skills I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU ALL.

See you all during the lessons!

Lucia is an English teacher since 13 years. Lucia prepares students and nurses to English certifications as Cambridge certificate. Indeed she adaptes her lessons according what you like and what you want to learn. Lucia creates and personalizes each of her English courses with different learning materials as books or powerpoint presentation, even pictures are made by herself ! She is very involved in her students progress and also very communicative with them providing a great atmosphere during her courses. I recommend her !

Lourdes is a great teacher! She has an easy going personality that makes you very comfortable during the class! I can be a little bit awkward when I talk to someone for the first time, but I didn't feel that at all during our first session! She always has a positive energy which is very encouraging. I've tried free trials with another teacher who I'm sure is good as well but the sessions lasted 15 min. Lourdes The free trial class was 1 hour and it felt exactly like the ones I paid for! The materials she uses are easy to follow but challenging enough to make steady progress. I would recommend her for anyone who is looking for an excellent and patient teacher with captivating personality!

Hello, students of English! I'm an American who teaches English classes at a French university. I have a life-long passion for foreign languages. Apart from French, I also speak fluent Spanish and have an intermediate level in Portuguese.

Teaching my native language is not only a language exchange, but a cultural exchange allowing me to connect with people from many diverse backgrounds.

All levels are welcome, and we can work with whatever you want (conversation classes, writing, etc.) The first lesson is always free, and allows me to do a level test.
