You always dreamed about learning French but got discouraged over the years? You learned 10 years French at school but you feel ridiculous when you try to communicate with French people?
Come and discover how this can change if you learn with the right mindset!
Learning a language with a positive mindset enhances your personal qualities and boosts your self-confidence. It is a process of achievement of yourself much deeper than a simple communication.
I was given the chance to learn 6 languages and I would like to share this amazing experience with you. I am a native French speaker and professional language teacher, graduated from the Sorbonne University in French, literature and Russian. I teach for over 8 years and I lived in different countries working for the Alliance française for all levels in schools and companies.
I teach with a positive mindset which transform the learning process. The classes are focused on conversation to gain self-confidence. Speak from the very first day!
My belief is that each student is different and requires a tailor-made lesson to meet that student’s needs and goals.
Concretely, I base my courses on the four essential competencies: speaking, listening, writing and reading, always focusing on your personal goals and motivation. I progressively integrate phonetics, grammar, conjugation, vocabulary in the courses which always include practical exercises.
The pedagogic materials I choose are mostly authentic materials or « realia » (that is to say anything created for native speakers: texts from literature, newspapers, radio podcasts, videos, songs...). Indeed, I am convinced that the learning process has to tackle « real subjects », as languages are alive and constantly changing. My main challenge is to help the learners to be able to « think » in the second language. The debate is the heart of my classroom, but always in a playful way, through many role games — for me learning a language is first and foremost a great joy!
The classes take place at the Central OBA of Amsterdam, at your work in Amsterdam or by skype.
I have been working as a face-to-face tutor in French Literature and Grammar, Philosophy and History for 7 years. For 5 years I have worked as a professional language teacher in both private and public schools, at university and in businesses for all ages in both group and individual settings. I have also provided preparation courses for French certifications: DELF, DALF, TCF, and TEF exams. Having worked in the Exam Center Alliance française in Kazan (Russia) as a French Expert and Trainer, Examiner and Corrector for the exams, I am very well versed with the demands of all the certifications. I am a certified examiner for the TEF exam (certified in 2017 by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry).
You can cancel up to 24h before the class. After that, you will be charged 50% of the class if you don't come.
Estellei is fun and spontaneous, yet very professional and prepared. She s able to teach while settling a positive and comfortable atmosphere all time along.
She is great in setting up creative and playful conversations that always stimulated me in interacting and learning.
Célie-Anne était mon prof de Français pendant mon cours à l'Alliance Française d'Amsterdam. Elle a une attitude super positive. Avec elle on se sent comme tout est possible. Elle n'utilises pas seulement la méthode/le livre qu'on suit, mais aussi beaucoup des exercices inventé par elle-même.
expérimenté, concentré, donner toujours une énergie positive à la classe
Estellei is mijn docent bij Alliance Française niveau C1.
Zij stimuleert en varieert in onderwijsvormen. Voor haar doe je graag een stapje extra in de voorbereiding en in de les.
She encourages us to speak and makes corrections on the spot in a way that feels positive. She creates a fun learning environment where all of us are able to express ourselves. I can truly say I have progressed in her class.
Celie-Anne is mijn 'Superprof' voor de cursus A2.2 van Alliance Francaise Amsterdam. Ze creëert een heel positieve sfeer en gebruikt veel humor. Maar als het moet is ze heel streng op de details. Ze inspireert tot een actieve attitude die o zo belangrijk is om Frans te leren.
Estellei has an amazing style of teaching. With her method of teaching a language with a positive mindset, I was able to overcome my blockages in the Russian language. Highly recommend trying Estellei to see if her method matches well with your needs. - Michael
Fenomenale! Non solo Célie è perfettamente in grado di insegnare una lingua, ma è straordinariamente capace di coinvolgere i propri studenti con mille trucchi, primo fra tutti il suo carattere.
Célie-Anne has been an amazing teacher for me, she showed great dedication and patience all along the courses. I can only recommend her to all students!
