private French in Paris - Yasmine Lesire

Founder and  French Teacher

Yasmine Lesire

I used to envision myself working at a ‘Big Four’ as a C-Level executive. Being a leader at one of these firms was a dream for many years. But dreams have a funny way of taking shape. In 2008 while attending business school full-time in Madrid, I started teaching as a private French teacher to make ends meet not realizing that along the way I would fall in love with this profession.

In 2009 when I relocated to Brussels, my job was helping busy professionals learn French, which I found challenging but also discovered there was a need in the marketplace. When I was about to complete my MBA, I changed my career trajectory to focus on educational entrepreneurship and ‘I Learn French, Brussels’ was born.

In 2016, I opened our second location ‘I Learn French, Paris’ and today I am successfully operating two schools while also teaching classes in-person and online. I am proud of how far me and my team of private French teachers have come, and how we are continuing to grow strong.

I studied translation in France. I have always loved traveling and meeting people from different countries and cultures. My translation studies, lead me to become a private French teacher. I found teaching French as a second language very interesting and I love helping people learning and speaking French. Because of this, continuously studying new courses has been a fantastic way to open up the opportunity to encounter a new perspective. I have experience teaching individual and group lessons, which includes both children and adults learners. What I enjoy most is understanding the way a person learns and adapts my lessons to his/her specific needs. I also enjoy being creative with lesson planning and having the opportunity to witness each student become more at ease with the language he/she is learning.

After initial studies in languages ​​and a Master in international relations, here I am, diplomas in my pocket, taking a few sideways in audiovisual subtitling and web writing, with cinema as the common denominator. The taste for words which has always accompanied me and the desire for exchanges and sharing with others, I ended up finding my way several years ago, thanks to a first experience of teaching French as a foreign language during a stay abroad. Since then, I have had the opportunity to interact and meet with audiences with very varied profiles, children and adults.
According to me, each course is both a meeting and a discovery. Learning takes place at your own pace in a spirit of freedom made conducive to conversation. On the other hand, the architectural structure, discreet but essential, is not forgotten thanks to the emphasis placed on the methodology for which I followed additional training. Finally, in the meantime I have satisfied another of my passions by resuming studies in art history, these two aspects of my life enriching each other!

In 2010, during my specialized studies in the fight against academic failure and illiteracy that I discovered (almost) by chance the world of “French as a Foreign Language”.

Since then, accompanying people in the discovery or deepening of knowledge of the French language has become a passion.

« La langue de Molière » being my native language, I was convinced I knew everything about it, and today, this language still surprises and amuses me with its exceptions and its peculiarities!

Do I have a particular method for teaching French? Yes, as a Private French teacher, I adapt my teaching skills to my audience. I have the ambition to teach French to people who feel listened to, serene in their learning. My wish is to help my students master this language and to improve their everyday life.

Why be a private French teacher?

This is a question that I am asked quite often, and which seems to me quite legitimate. I grew up in a multicultural environment. French being one of my mother tongues, has always been my favorite. The French language has always been my favorite world with its delicate literature, its funny imaginary expressions, its poetry sometimes romantic, sometimes gloomy.

So, why do I teach it?

The answer is simple: When you are passionate, you like to transmit, you like to immortalize and spread the passion around you. When I started studying languages ​​at the Sorbonne, many of my foreign classmates asked me for help with French. I was always happy to help. Little by little, I found myself giving lessons here and there. Until the moment I realized that it had become my full time job.

I do it in a different, passionate way, I don’t choose, I let myself be guided by each learner. I adapt my teaching skills to my student and this is the benefit of studying with a private French teacher.

Laura

It was during a trip to Australia, 6 years ago, that I found my vocation for teaching French as a foreign language. I was helping a friend I met there to prepare for her French exam and I quickly understood that I had just found my way! Becoming a private French teacher was obvious for me. I decided to attend a training at the Alliance Française of Melbourne and to teach in different language schools to develop varied learning methods. I continued this activity in New Zealand and today, I am delighted to be able to devote myself fully to private lessons in a city as rich as Brussels. I like the idea of working in a team spirit. , and in a friendly and caring atmosphere 🙂

Sometimes a career comes along, far from the path you thought you were taking. After graduating from a School of Business and a Master in Audiovisual Production in France, I went to Brussels to start a career in cinema production. However, I have been overtaken by an urgent need to find a job in which I can share, pass on to others and feel useful. During my meetings, the French Foreign Language appeared to me as obvious. Learning new languages has always been a passion for me. What’s more beautiful than teaching my own language to allophones?I then decided to become a private French teacher. I did a professorship training at the Alliance Française, where I discovered a special interest in correcting phonetics with the verbo-tonal method. What I particularly like about teaching French is to be in contact with people from very different cultures, and to introduce my students to the subtleties (and also the absurdities …) of the French language.

Aurélie

Passionate about the French language, I started a degree in modern literature with the idea of becoming a French teacher. In the third year, I discovered French as a foreign language with an option. It was a favorite and I decided to do a master of FLE. Then I taught 3 years at the university in China before spending a year in Japan where I gave private lessons. I immediately liked the opportunity to get to know each student better and to be able to create personalized lessons. After 3 years of private lessons in the United States, I wanted to return to France to continue the adventure in Paris. I like to work in an atmosphere of trust and kindness and to progress in a good mood.

Juliette K. 

Discovering a language is discovering a world. 
My approach aims at optimizing learning faculties through a program tailored to the learner(s). 
The course is dynamic while relying on a methodical and rigorous learning of the French language. 
My motto, you have to love to learn!
 
I graduated two master degrees in international affairs at SciencesPo Paris and in French Literature at Paris 4 – La Sorbonne. 
While I intend to pursue a career in international relations, I manage to keep teaching French for as long as possible as it is deeply anchored in my strong will of sharing the jewels of the language.
 
This double cursus allows me to reach a large and targeted audience at the same time. My classes can help both professionals and tourists who wish to learn my native language : French. 
 
I am convinced that a language is inseparable from its culture. It shapes it and is shaped by it. 
This is why I love to enrich the classes with references (literary, artistic, cinematographic, etymological) in order to please lovers of the French language and culture.
