I start the student basing the lessons on the foundation of sound as the French language follows its parent Latin and knowing the pronunciation and spelling rules are a great help in learning the spellings etc. People from English backgrounds have a tendency to get confused as vocabulary in French and English is 50% the same. A lot of the grammar in French is based on keeping the sound "nice" and this can be very confusing. A good basic grammar foundation is the first prerequisite to do well in French.
By understanding the language ability of Indian students and their problems with conflicting grammar of Indian languages and English I am able to give them a correct and more easily understood foundation which of course helps them to improve their English too.
Lastly I am a communications specialist and learning with me means learning to communicate well using language as a tool. My experience is international as I have been working as a design and marketing consultant with European companies since the last 44 years.

I started teaching in 1967 and wrote guide books for the students of Osmania university. Later I worked with Engineers at Tisco and prepared special lessons there which I used to teach the CEO French in one month. The lessons were so successful that they were used by French Academy for correspondence courses with cassette tapes (average 800 students per annum). I used the lessons to run special short term courses at YWCA, YMCA, and other schools and colleges in Delhi.
Rs 1000 per hour—per session, the duration will be extended to 2 hours each session but I will take a booking of at least confirmed 4 classes in advance.
If you cannot come for the initial “getting to know each other class”, I can send you a “test” by email once you make contact thru Superprof.
