ABOUT ME

Enchantée !

Experience in teaching French since 2018


I have a university degree in Russian language and culture, and lived for several months in Krasnodar (Russia) and in Budapest (Hungary).

After, I got a Master's degree in teaching French to foreign-language speakers. Thanks to these experiences, I learnt the feeling to be a foreigner in a new country, I felt how it is to try to be integrated and understand a new way of life.

You feel alone in this new country ? You don't understand French and/or French culture ? Some things seem completely crazy for you ? I get it... I know these feelings too...

My goal is to give you the tools to understand French people and France, trough language but also through daily life, administration, culture (music, movies, serials, YouTubers, ...), specificities, history, geography.

I also prepare people who want to pass the TCF in particular the TCF IRN in order to apply for French citizen or "carte de séjour longue durée".  

Also, since September 2022, I am the Head of French department at the association ARDAH (for refugees and asking asylum).

At least, I had (and have different) experiences with people from Eurocorps, the Council of Europe, EU-LISA, European Parliament, travelers, CEO, teachers, ...

It will be a pleasure to work with you ! :) 

MY TEACHING

Ma philosophie

La pratique de l'oral

L'accent est mis sur la pratique de l'oral et la conversation.

La culture et l'histoire

Passionnée de culture et d'histoire, j'adore transmettre mes connaissances aux élèves afin de leur permettre de découvrir autrement la France. La France, ce n'est pas seulement Paris ! ;)

Des cours sur-mesures

Les cours sont adaptés à vos besoins et vos objectifs. Aussi, je crée de nombreuses ressources pédagogiques.

La prononciation

La prononciation est, selon moi, une partie de la langue qui est trop souvent oubliée. Pourtant, même si votre grammaire est parfaite mais pas la prononciation, la communication sera difficile.

我很幸運當初2019在網路上找到Edwige!因為在巴黎上班的緣故,下班後能夠配合的團體班和教師少之又少,為了減少通勤的時間跟精力,我在網路上一直想找到遠距教學的專業教師。從2019在巴黎上班後就跟著她上課上到現在,明顯感受到自己的發音、口語及聽力大幅提升!以前真的非常討厭開口說法文,現在卻越來越喜歡開口練習,變得更有自信了。Edwige會根據每個人的需求客製課程內容,比起坊間教育機構的固定課綱來得更有彈性!為了能在工作上更加融入公司文化和產業特性,她也特製了很多針對時尚業的內容幫我加強不足的地方,也在我的日常工作上增加了不少幫助。老師也會依據學生在法國生活的需求,準備關於法國文化、歷史、地緣關係、政治、社會保險⋯⋯等課程。Edwige是一位非常有耐心、熱愛工作的合格法語老師,每次1.5小時的課程過得很充實快樂,總是可以感受老師全心全意熱愛生活和工作的積極生活態度。真的非常非常推薦跟著老師一起學法文!

當初是在IG看到有人推薦老師 才決定鼓起勇氣跟老師聯絡試聽,上課一年了常常覺得老師有一種魔力,可以把歷史變得有趣,帶我更了解法國文化,讓我對法文更有興趣! 老師真的很用心,每份教材都是他親自編輯的,也能客製化需求😙 原本對自己說法文很沒自信的我,慢慢發現自己好像有進步了,也變得比較敢開口

Elle enseigne parfaitement la langue. Les leçons sont diverse et claire. Elle m’enseigne grammaire , orale, écrite, d’histoire et de culture française . J’ai l’intention de faire Delf b2 et je vais continuer étudier avec Edwige.

I have been participating in a very lively French discussion via Whatsapp. Edwige "conducts" our conversation by setting a theme for each week and letting us have our say. We also have other exchanges as we get to know each other. We communicate by both text and taped audio.I am enjoying this format very much and I know I am learning a lot. Whilst I cannot improve my oral comprehension in this way most other aspects of my French are very much on the improve.I should say that it "works" both because Edwige has selected us to be compatible conversationalists and because she, herself, is a person of deep and profound ideas and thoughts who adds depth to our conversation. Also, Edwige is gentle and encouraging. The conversations are for practicing your French. They are not for correction so don't be discouraged. However I consider her coordination to be essential. There are many French chat groups around but you won't beat the Online Alsace offering I can guarantee. This is real value for money.Our chats are daily if you have time or at whatever frequency you want. Because we live across the globe the "ping" comes through at all kinds of weird hours. Sometimes I am responding at a crazy hour because it is such fun but you can do it whenever you have time.

很認真的老師,每份教材都是親自依據學生的程度準備。Edwige很細心磨我的發音,課程有趣多元,非常推薦!A very nice teacher, every note and exercise are prepared by Edwige, according to your level and interest. She spent a lot of time to correct my pronunciation. The class content is very diverse and interesting. We talked about cultures, history, human right, cuisine, and politics, and it’s totally up to you what interests you the most. Highly recommended!

I feel lucky to have found Edwige soon after I moved to Strasbourg in 2019. I had tried many apps and eventually realized I would need in person lessons. I found Edwige and never looked back. My life in Strasbourg changed completely. In no time I was able to communicate where most needed, at work and in stores and restaurants. As much as my French improved so did my understanding of French culture, history, and politics.Edwige quickly picked up my learning style and tailored our classes to my needs. These are details that can never be recreated on a language learning app. Thank you Edwige!
