L'enseignement de Dominique est précis et bien adapté à l'étudiant. TrÚs axé sur la pratique, Dominique m'a aidé à bien évoluer en me concentrant sur la prononciation, généralement mise de cÎté par les profs et pourtant indispensable pour bien se faire comprendre et comprendre. Grùce à Dominique, j'ai constaté une trÚs nette amélioration dans la conversation avec mes partenaires américains.
Je recommande vivement son enseignement !

Dominique m’a aidĂ© Ă  rĂ©ussir un test d’anglais, l’IELTS. Elle a toutes les qualitĂ©s que l’on recherche chez un professeur: elle est pĂ©dagogue, dynamique, rigoureuse, Ă  l’écoute et trĂšs sympathique. Je recommande Dominique vivement!

Maxime

Dominique n'est pas seulement une excellente professeure, c'est également une personne qui dispose d'une qualité d'écoute et d'une empathie naturelle qui la pousse à faire exprimer le meilleur des personnes qu'elle accompagne. Ce fut un plaisir de collaborer avec elle pendant plusieurs mois ! Je ne saurais donc mieux faire que vivement recommander Dominique pour ses compétences et son énergie incroyable.

Interview with Dominique

QUESTION 01 | 06
Pourriez-vous nous décrire votre parcours de professeur de langue ?
Dominique — Mes Ă©tudes se sont dĂ©roulĂ©es entre les Etats-Unis et la France.
AprĂšs avoir obtenu ma maĂźtrise d’anglais, je suis partie parcourir les Etats-Unis et ai eu un gros coup de coeur pour San Francisco oĂč j’ai passĂ© 5 ans. J’y ai travaillĂ© et poursuivi des Ă©tudes en mĂȘme temps pour obtenir un MA en français et pouvoir enseigner dans les CollĂšges. De retour en France, j’ai travaillĂ© 18 ans comme responsable pĂ©dagogique dans une Ă©cole de français pour Ă©trangers (Ă©cole de langue pour Ă©trangers) rĂ©putĂ©e et ai continuĂ© Ă  enseigner les deux langues.

Un mĂ©tier passionnant qui me permet toujours aujourd’hui de faire de trĂšs belles rencontres et de voyager dans le monde entier !
QUESTION 02 | 06
Dans quel but vos Ă©lĂšves souhaitent-il apprendre une nouvelle langue vivante ? Quelles sont les difficultĂ©s les plus rĂ©currentes rencontrĂ©es par vos Ă©lĂšves en cours d’anglais et cours de français ?
Dominique — Dominique vous attend pour des cours de langue personnalisĂ©s en Provence ! (Cliquez sur l’image pour rĂ©server votre cours !)
Des raisons multiples, beaucoup souhaitent rĂ©veiller un anglais trop scolaire juste pour leur propre Ă©panouissement. Quand d’autres veulent Ă©voluer professionnellement ou rĂ©ussir un examen/test pour des Ă©tudes superieures (TOEIC, TOEFL).
Certains veulent seulement apprendre une langue en guise de loisir !

Le manque de confiance (surtout les Français vis à vis de l’anglais) !
La langue enseignĂ©e de façon trop classique n’est pas la langue vivante quotidienne dont ils ont besoin.
QUESTION 03 | 06
Quel est votre meilleur conseil pour apprendre une langue Ă©trangĂšre ?
Dominique — Se faire plaisir en l’utilisant avant tout ! L’écouter beaucoup : films en VO, chansons, magazines, programmes anglo saxons, podcasts, applications mobiles
 Le plus d’oral possible en somme (expression orale, comprĂ©hension orale).

Mais pour apprendre Ă  parler anglais ou français progressivement (sans stress !), le mieux reste de partir en voyage ! En sĂ©jour linguistique en Angleterre par exemple, ou ailleurs

QUESTION 04 | 06
Comment aidez-vous vos apprentis linguistes Ă  atteindre leurs objectifs en anglais et FLE ?
Dominique — Pour que chaque Ă©tudiant atteigne ses objectifs, j’applique ce que l’on appelle la « pĂ©dagogie active » !

C’est Ă  dire mettre l’étudiant en situation active, dans le plus de situations authentiques possibles :

des jeux de rĂŽle pour simuler la vie quotidienne,
lui faire écouter des extraits audio ou vidéo,
regarder et lire des documents authentiques

Le tout pour qu’il fixe sa concentration sur la comprehension et l’expression orale (les bases structurelles sont Ă©tudiĂ©es ou rappelĂ©es selon le niveau Ă  travers des situations). L’élĂšve retient et Ă©crit ce qu’il a retenu et surtout, le vocabulaire qui l’interesse !
QUESTION 05 | 06
Quels outils en ligne recommandez-vous pour apprendre une langue Ă©trangĂšre ?
Dominique — Le web est une mine d’or pour apprendre l’anglais en ligne ou mĂȘme le français !

Je donne de nombreuses pistes et outils Ă  mes Ă©tudiants pour un travail personnel. Word reference est un traducteur par exemple excellent, les cours par Skype avec le prof (excellent pour le travail oral et la prise de confiance) sont Ă©galement trĂšs efficaces !
QUESTION 06 | 06
Avez-vous des anecdotes concernant votre expérience de prof de langue ?
Dominique — Une de mes Ă©tudiantes Ă  Antibes a commencĂ© une formation anglais avec moi dans le but de s’expatrier aux Etats -Unis Ă  Philadelphie, car son mari y avait Ă©tĂ© mutĂ©. Lorsqu’elle a finalement dĂ» partir pour les USA, elle ne voulait pas arrĂȘter les cours et a donc dĂ©cidĂ© de continuer via skype.

Cela fait maintenant 6 mois que nous faisons les cours par Skype alors qu’elle est aux Etats-Unis ! Elle avait le syndrome bien français, la peur de parler, mais aujourd’hui elle est trĂšs Ă  l’aise et a arrĂȘtĂ© les cours car elle parle pratiquement couramment. Je suis trĂšs contente de cette progression car elle a finalement lĂąchĂ© prise
 Elle est naturopathe et donne des conseils en anglais Ă  ses patients AmĂ©ricains !

Je continue Ă  avoir des contacts avec certains de mes Ă©tudiants aux 4 coins du monde et cela me ravit. J’ai donnĂ© des cours Ă  un jeune dont le pĂšre ne croyait guĂšre aux capacitĂ©s de son ado de fils Ă  progresser en anglais pour son Bac ES. Un parcours scolaire classique et peu de motivation, des rĂ©sultats plus que mĂ©diocres au lycĂ©e le faisaient partir perdant
 J’ai reçu un message touchant du pĂšre mi-juin 2016 qui me remerciait car son fils venait d’obtenir une note de 14 sur 20 en anglais !
