Silvia Laffont's Full Profile
I am very flexible: depending on your goals, I will make a personalized teaching plan. For instance, if you are a beginner who only wants to learn French in preparation for a trip, we will focus on key expressions, developing your ability to recognize spoken words and I can also train you on conversing on basic topics. However, if you want to really get into the culture and the language, if you want to eventually become fluent in the language, we will work a little more on the grammar and the conjugation as well as your reading skills. In order to keep it fun, we will also study songs or talk about movies and French culture. Finally, for advanced students, once again, depending on your goals, we will either try to work on your accent, correcting recurring mistakes and also to improve the quality of your sentences. To sum it up: it all depends on you: I'll make you the French speaker you choose to be!
My name is Silvia. I was born and raised in France but moved to New York City when I was 24 (already 4 years ago!). Before that, I lived in Paris where I was studying English as a foreign language as well as linguistics at the Sorbonne University where I got a Master degree. I LOVE foreign languages, travel, music, movies, cultures all around the world and this is why I tutor languages.
