French tutoring

Question

Hello Everybody !

I would like to take french lessons in January.

I found a lot of offers from french teachers on the Internet, but I don't know how to pick one... Schools also offers tutoring, but it's really expensive !

Is there someone who had a good experience ? Could you recommend me someone efficient and pleasant ?

Thank you !

A lot will depend on where in Belgium you live!
Most communes - both Flemish and Walloon - offer courses at a very cheap rate; sometimes even free.
If you are in Brussels, both of the 'free' universities - VUB and ULB - offer low cost language courses. However, with these options, January will be a sticking point as they commonly run for the normal school year - from September.

I had private lessons with Eugénie in Ixelles, she is great ! Very professional, organised and nice.

I took two lessons of one hour and a half per week and I made a lot of progress, very quickly (I was a beginner). Now I can speak in everyday life. I will certainly continue in January...

Here is her facebook profile : Bonjour Europe Eugénie

Indeed ! I also took french lessons with Eugénie, she is very good, serious, and everything becomes clear when she explains, especially the grammar...
The lesson is a very special moment to talk and practice french.

The rate is reasonable according to the quality and it's really cheaper than having tutoring in a school. I began with her in tutoring to learn fast and I continued in a language school where she teach. It's a group lesson, but it's less expensive...

I hope that help !

Her only lack is that she is not specialized in professional french. She can help you a lot with diplomatic french but not with business french...

Have a look at French Minute http://www.frenchminute.com/ . I took lessons with Jean-Robert Lebrun when he lived in Brussels. He has vast experience and is excellent at tailoring his lessons to your needs. I subscribe to his French minute course and sometimes use Skype, email, voice recordings etc for when I need his help for some particular topic/situation. I value the flexibility of this kind of e-learning.

Salut !

I'm 24 years old and I'm studying political science at ULB (Université Libre de Bruxelles).

I'm young but I have a good knowledge of French grammar. In general, we read texts, make vocabulary games, grammar exercices and a lot of conversation.

I've already had several students (from Austria, Singapore and Poland). All of them told me that the course was great !

Practically, the rates depend of two things : the duration (1, 2 or 1,5 hours) and the place (it's possible for me to come to you or to give lesson in my home). But my price is not very expensive because I'm just a student and I'm not an "official" teacher. It's just a good way to learn French simply !

Let me know what you think !

Thank you !

Arnaud
