1-1 Online Tuition

Pay wHat you can afford

This 10 week online 1-1 course is intended for students of any level. Students will cover the four skills of language acquisition: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

The course is designed for people who want not only to learn French as a language but have a wider understanding of the Francophone world. The main reason French is considered an international language is because France's colonial empire imposed it on francophone countries.

 

This course is about exploring the different dynamics that have shaped French-speaking nations and communities, in their relation to themselves but also to the imperial metropole - France. Every language represents not only the linguistic structures for communication but also, and most importantly the cultural package of meanings that come with it. And while the French language is mainly taught through presenting French culture, this course will be based on the diverse experiences and identities that make up this heterogeneous whole called “Francophone culture”.

 

By using context-based and transformative pedagogies, based on the teacher's years-long research of alternative ways of producing knowledge and change, this course will be structured in a participatory methodology, where challenging world views and exchange of ideas will be strongly encouraged, along with the effective provision of all the necessary linguistic tools to do so.
