First, I will help my students define their goals. I'm a French tutor living in Tokyo, Japan. I will make them learn French very quickly without excessive effort. We will follow a rule called Pareto's law. I have experienced it myself when I was learning English and now with Japanese. The Pareto principle will allow them to effectively learn useful vocabularies in no time. Not just any vocabulary!  The objective will therefore be to learn 20% of the vocabulary words or standard sentences that are used 80% of the time. We will therefore learn vocabulary by frequency of use. Did you know that the 100 most common English words represent half of all English w... Read more
First, I will help my students define their goals. I'm a French tutor living in Tokyo, Japan. I will make them learn French very quickly without excessive effort. We will follow a rule called Pareto's law. I have experienced it myself when I was learning English and now with Japanese. The Pareto principle will allow them to effectively learn useful vocabularies in no time. Not just any vocabulary!  The objective will therefore be to learn 20% of the vocabulary words or standard sentences that are used 80% of the time. We will therefore learn vocabulary by frequency of use. Did you know that the 100 most common English words represent half of all English writing? Awesome, isn't it? Above all, this means that learning all the vocabulary words in a language is (at first) useless. You have to start by learning the vocabulary by frequency of use. That is, giving priority to the most used words. However, this differs in spoken and written. Once my students have the vocabulary base, we could specialize on specific topics according to their potential need(s). For example, if they want to learn French quickly for business trips, we will focus on business-related vocabulary (negotiation, meeting, presentation, etc.). We will go to the basics, in fact, to learn a language quickly, no need to bother, and waste time learning words that will not be useful immediately. Perfection will come the more they use the language. In terms of grammar, we will follow the same system. We will learn in priority, the rules of the most used grammars. We will start first with all the most used forms of conjugations that exist (the present, the simple past, the past tense, the imperfect, and the future) and gradually we will go to the more complex and less used for those who want it, of course. If not, I seem to be teaching the most essential grammar rules more. To make learning more efficient and sparkling, we will use very suitable methods. I would always try to create a friendly and fun environment. As we say, you have to combine the useful with the pleasant in order to learn better. In this logic, we will use different means such as music, games, and others depending on the hobbies of each student. Second, we will use a method called the “spaced repetition system” which will effectively allow them to memorize the lessons quickly. It is also used by medical students. It is a system that really works. You will discover all of these as we start our French tutoring online. For all my future students, do not worry, we will make the journey together and with well thought out efforts and an efficient method, smart as they say, you will speak French sparklingly without even realizing it.
