Why Learn French?

French is a language spoken in every continent by more than 300 million people. It is the sixth most widely spoken language in the world and, as a taught language, it is the most popular after English.

In the working environment, language skills are often the decisive factor during the recruitment of people with similar qualifications. This is the reason why knowledge of French or English is a big advantage in the job market. This applies especially to the Czech Republic where there are a lot of French companies among foreign investors.

French is also one of the most important languages in European Union institutions and several organizations, like the UN and UNESCO.

French is an important cultural language and mastering it will

allow you to enjoy reading authors as Balzac, Camus or Saint-Exupéry in the original…

Knowing French is also useful when travelling to France, the world’s top tourist destination, but also to other Francophone countries like Canada, Monaco, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and many other countries in Africa…

French is also one of the most commonly used languages on the Internet.

General French

Les étudiants prenant note

General language studying.

I offer courses based on a systematic, complete and progressive methodology and focused on the practical usage of the French language with the aim of developing skills in the fields of communication, language and culture. My courses follow a specific and detailed plan composed of different thematic units. Each unit contains listening and reading comprehension, grammar and vocabulary exercises and a brief introduction to French civilization and culture. Both audio documents (songs, film extracts, interviews…) and written texts (letters, e-mails, articles from the press…) are used. In most cases the material is authentic, which allows students to understand French language and culture in a realistic context. Each unit is evaluated and so the development of the student is regularly checked. The student thus has concrete means to review his studies.

Professional French

Professional French courses are designed to suit the needs of companies.

Their aim is to encourage students to communicate in French in common situations related to their job and to help them acquire technical terminology. We will develop the course programme according to real-life work situations and each lesson will thematically follow the previous one. We will study grammar in relation to work tasks. The students are taught to identify unknown words and language structures in documents they work with and then use them in activities related to their jobs.

I offer the following courses:

- Business French

- French for Assistants

- French for Tourism 

- Hotel and Hospitality Management

Required level: false beginner/intermediate, A2/B1 level of the Common European Framework for Languages.

French Conversation

Classroom

Easy and natural spoken language practice!

Choose conversation lessons with me and take advantage of courses with a French native speaker.

The main objective of conversation courses is to work on different interactions which help develop the fluency of spoken language. Courses could be focused on different topics according to the student’s choice and they are based on various materials which support speaking skills: typically a series of questions around a central theme or based on newspaper articles, advertisements, visual documents, audio and video documents, quotations, proverbs and idioms…

There is a focus on vocabulary broadening so that the student will be able to use his/her language skills automatically or develop them within a certain topic.

Preparation for exams

DELF exam preparation: objective success! 

The DELF  Diploma (Diplôme d'Etudes en Langue Française) has four levels:   A1, A2, B1 and B2. It is the official certificate issued by the French Ministry of Education within the education of teachers of FLE (Français Langue Etrangère). This diploma is in accordance with levels of the CEFR .

Thanks to the DELF Diploma, you will be able to demonstrate your language competency level in French. DELF certificates are recognized by most international authorities so they will be useful for your university studies as well as the job market.

My goal is to prepare you for these exams with a programme focused on four examined competencies: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, writing and speaking. Throughout the course, you will work on different exercises, from basic to advanced, and different exam topics so that, on exam day, you will be confident enough to pass.

Reviews

Using Laptop in a Cafe
"I've been lucky enough to have been taking lessons from Romain for nearly 3 months and I feel my French has really progressed a lot, particularly in my vocab and pronunciation which are the areas we agreed to work on.
He also corrects my grammar as we converse and explains the areas where direct translation from English does not work. Romain is very professional and structured in his approach and his prices are reasonable. I recommend him highly."
