It goes without saying that you will learn the best French from a real Frenchman or Frenchwoman. At Native Teachers, all our language teachers were born and raised in the country of the language they teach. All our French teachers come from France; however, all have lived in the Netherlands for a lengthy period and have taught French here for many years. Our French teachers have extensive experience in designing, creating and delivering lessons to speakers of other languages. With their background in teaching French to a huge diversity of students, our French teachers are expert at adapting the training to the level and objectives of each individual.
The great advantage of customized French training is that no time is wasted on topics irrelevant to you. If you are a Dutch entrepreneur wanting to do business in the French market, you will need a whole different set of language skills to someone entering the diplomatic service in Paris. There are also vast vocabulary differences among the various business sectors. The world of oenology and gastronomy, for example, has a very different vocabulary and style of speaking than, for example, that of computer animation or haute couture. With all this in mind, your French Native Teacher will create a lesson programme especially for you, which accurately matches your specific needs. The emphasis of the lesson might be on grammar and error-free writing, or on spoken fluency and the use of idiomatic language... the choice is yours.
Living, working, doing business in France... as well as a good command of the language, all this also demands a certain ‘savoir vivre’. During your private French lessons, your teacher will also offer insight into typical French customs, so you can avoid committing the dreaded 'faux pas'. This cultural aspect will come up naturally during the language lessons, during the conversational element of the training. Your French teacher will utilize a wide range of lesson materials, including newspapers, magazines and websites. With this, you are assured of learning practical, relevant French while at the same time keeping informed of all the latest topical issues and societal developments. Useful information for anyone wishing to live and work in French society.
