Hi! My name is Jo-anne, I am 33 years old, and I am a french native global citizen.
I have developed a very interesting connection to my mother tongue, being able to speak it perfectly and yet becoming a foreigner to it by using English on a daily basis, which over the year has grown me into a fine, and fun conversation partner: I can anchor you directly in French-speaking culture, while instantly tailoring intelligent and precise - but relaxed - insights on grammar and conjugation for you to remember better, and forever, rules and vocabulary, without the boredom of the book (I love books. But speaking and experience the rules and rhythm of a language is the best way to learn. Aliveness !).
I am a language nerd - not specific ones, but the language in general whether it'd be the spoken words, the artistic language of a picture, the energetic language of a situation, or the subtle language of the universe.
With me, you will be able to have a conversation as shallow as the weather forecast ( although I can bring you far just on that topic ) or as deep as holding a conversation on mindset, philosophy, emotions, and life on this planet as a spiritual being.
From my experience, learning a new language means connecting to oneself from a different perspective, and therefore involves a lot of self - growth, and expansion, which is wonderful and fun, and anchoring a new language beyond the level of practical necessity keeps it alive monger and better in your life.
I speak fluent English, moderately fluent Danish, which I learned both by experience, and by myself, have a few clues of German, and I am currently incorporating Spanish.
I have a background in art and music, and my main field of work is spirituality and self-healing, and I have a passion for sound.
For me, a language is deeply auditive, and about an expression of energy. I hope to come along your experience of learning French so that you feel comfortable in expressing yourself in French, more than correcting you, although I will obviously bring in adjustments when they are necessary, and answer any questions in that regard 😁
I am a Gemini zodiac, so talking is quite natural for me 😌. I may inadvertently shift into astrology - which is another needing field of mine - and ask you about your placements, or maybe look them up for you during a conversation 😁
In general, I prefer a teacher through a conversation. Digging into Grammar, sentence structure, vocabulary, conjugation, can be done in a relaxed, informal, but precise manner. I am probably a great pick for a right-minded person who needs structure while learning language 😌✨
A lesson can be a walk in the park or a café, for practicing conversing, or sitting in a more studious environment - but not without a cup of tea and/or a croissant - such as the Library for example.
I can assist in creating a tailored class each time we meet, according to what you need or want to study/explore.
I am also available for people who want to practice speaking french to incorporate it faster.
I can speak clearly and slowly, or give you the native fluent french - always with a touch of outsiders since I have become an observer of my own mother tongue 😛.
I will always be able to empathize with you, because of my external point of view towards my mother tongue: I speak it perfectly while also experiencing it as a foreigner, which is bizarre, but ultimately a rich position to stand-in.
Let's meet up if you feel called!
Wherever you are the best way isnto speak it. If you can't speak it, the second best is to hear it, so your ears - and your brain - get to shape themselves to the language. So, find the French and follow them discretely 😆 or listen to the French radio ! I recommend Radio Nova. Reading french is also great. Books, subtitles ! Then you connect the 3 inputs : auditive, visual, and experienced.
It takes the time it takes according to your rhythm - and that's how it should be. Somethings will be fast learned, some others will take more time. A daily input, whichever it is, will go a long way, however !
