Instead of using your SHORT-TERM MEMORY and forget everything in a week or two, I will help you work on your LONG-TERM MEMORY to fully stock and assimilate what you learn
When it comes to languages we ask people "what languages do you SPEAK?" and not "what langauges do you understand and/or write?". I will make sure you speak with more confidence and in no time
If you studied languages at school, chances are that you sound like a grammar book but definitely not like a native speaker. I will right your teacher's wrongs and show you the way to sound more native-like
If you want to move up a gear in your foreign language learning, then I encourage you to choose this 4-hour conversation pack. You will be able to practice the most important linguistic competence: the spoken language. We will talk about various topics depending on what interests you most (news, sports, cinema, science, whatever). The idea is to focus on the conversation because we always ask the same question "do you speak a language" and not "do you write/read/understand a language?"
In addition you do not need to choose a language in particular since you can tell me that you want to do 2 hours of French and 2 hours of English for example. It is possible to vary the conversations and of course we will stop on the errors, the expressions, the words of vocabulary and the small points of grammar which can serve. This service is more for people who already have a certain level and who want to improve a language.
I developed this service because I work daily with people who need a language coach to guide them in their foreign language learning experience. These people spend on average 25 euros per hour for a private class. This means that for only 4 hours of classes per month, they have to pay 100 euros. It should be known that in 4 hours of lessons, it is difficult to see results quickly and to address all the subjects necessary for the good development of linguistic skills. With this online coaching service, I propose a cost of 30 euros per month with full access to a private platform 24/7. I share with you my tips, tricks, exercises, materials, vocabulary and more to make sure you always have something to do or practice everyday. So you can connect whenever and wherever you want. You do not need to move and you can adapt your schedule as you wish.
If you live in the area of Sant Cugat del Vallès I can help you design a personalized program. We would then meet one hour every week to debrief on your work and results to adapt and optimize your program. I will also be able to answer all of your questions and teach you grammar to make sure you do not have any doubts when it comes to perfecting your language skills. I will always explain in details how to work with different kinds of materials (texts, videos, podcasts and more).
I will also be able to adapt your program in function of your needs and special requests. I will always teach you in context by creating situations you might be familiar with in your daily life. You will have to complete little challenges on a daily basis in order to gain confidence and improve your skills in all domains of the language. Each private class will be the occasion to improve in conversation.
I hold a bachelor's degree in English philology and a Master of Advanced English Research and Studies. I graduated from the UFR of Orléans and from the UAB of Barcelona. I lived in the USA to perfect my English and I now live in Barcelona where I’ve been improving my Spanish and Catalan. I am a researcher in Sociolinguistics and Foreign Language Learning. I also work as a language coach with dozens of customers. My goal is not only to teach you foreign languages but also to teach you how to learn them regarding your goals and needs.
Lionel as a teacher looks for the best way to motivate and teach the English language for each student.
Lionel is a very good teacher and a nice person too. He really knows how to motivate you.
Desde hace un par de meses, he retomado mis clases olvidadas de Francés con Lionel. A lo largo de estos últimos años he hecho clases de Francés con diferentes profesores, tanto particulares como en academias. Tengo que decir, que Lionel consigue con su método que realmente aprendas mucho sin tener la sensación de estar trabajando, haciéndolo cómodo y agradable. Siempre y digo siempre, sales de sus clases habiendo aprendido algo nuevo y sobretodo algo practico. Sus clases son muy variadas y siempre van acompañadas con soporte de diferentes aplicaciones informáticas, enfocadas al aprendizaje del idioma en cuestión, videos en YouTube, canciones, lecturas, conversaciones sobre temas de actualidad, etc etc.
Sin duda alguna es con el profesor que más he progresado, en menos tiempo y sin tener la sensación de haberme esforzado, una combinación perfecta. Totalmente recomendable a cualquier persona interesada en aprender un idioma.
Muchas gracias por todo Lionel.
