French on-line courses for adults
I am Elsa, a passionate French teacher. After obtaining my Literature baccalauréat, I took additional courses in literary preparatory courses (hypokhâgne and khâgne). I then joined the University and obtained my master’s degree. I was thereafter accepted into Modern Letters CAPES. Upon completing this degree, I then worked as a certified teacher of the state for 10 years. Additionally, I taught at the Paul Valéry University in Montpellier and the school of video production in Nîmes. I also work as a thesis proof-reader. I completed a course in Psychology at the University in order to improve my pedagogical approach.
Since 2015, I have worked as an independent teacher and adult educator. I provide training for civil servants of the French government and for adults who wish to improve their French.
French on-line courses for adults are in French for a full immersion !!

I found Elsa to be a creative, knowledgeable and engaging teacher. She knew my skill level from our correspondence in French. Because this is a complete immersion program, we spoke only French during the lessons. When I didn't understand something, she would explain it in different ways until it clicked for me. Along with a strong focus on grammar, we also talked about the history of the language, and she worked with me on improving my pronunciation of certain sounds. I struggled with as a native English speaker. She explained things at my level of understanding, and whether she was explaining a completely new-to-me topic, or going into detail about something I had already learned, her depth of knowledge allowed me to walk away with a more thorough understanding of the subject.

Elsa is an intuitive, attentive and patient teacher who brings out the best in each student. Laura H. Melbourne Australia
I moved to France in 2015 with absolutely no functioning skills in French. Immediately, I improved my speaking abilities while working with Elsa. Her explanations were clear concise and accurate. Not only is she competent in her grammar and understandings of French as a written language. She also understands how the French language has been influenced and the reasoning as to why rules and exceptions exist historically within the written form. Kristina H. Paris, France
