About Philippe

I am a French native and I love helping people use and enjoy our beautiful language.

I hope I can make you appreciate the many French songs that are part of our culture as I started presenting them in a blog of French songs 101.

All my education happened in France and French speaking Cameroun where I obtained a BA in French literature. I was for one year a French Assistant at Loretto Heights College in Denver where I started sharing my love of French popular songs with students as I think songs can help you learn and enjoy the language as well as being an essential part of our culture.

I think learning a language is always a very personal experience that varies with each person. It can also mean very different things: learning enough to get by for a trip is not the same as being able to write without any grammatical mistake. So there is no fixed approach and you have to feel comfortable with your tutor, something that will take more than reading this profile but it gives you an idea. Thank you.

Je parle depuis ma naissance :) . Marié avec une Américaine j'ai une très longue habitude des rapports des Américains avec la langue française. Washington nous voilà!

A bientôt et tous mes meilleurs voeux dans votre apprentissage de notre langue. Connaissez-vous la chanson d'Yves Duteil, "la langue de chez nous"? Je vous la recommande. Ou tant d'autres... on peut aussi apprendre en chantant.

French

I am a native French speaker with a deep love of the French language. While I have been living in the U.S. for 16 years I keep practicing speaking, reading and writing French. I wrote several books in French as well as blogs, including one dedicated to French songs. I have a teaching degree in French as well as a degree in communications. I love to share my expertise in French and help people master the language.

Very wide knowledge, good teacher!!

Philippe is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and also allowed time for me to speak and think through expressions when I needed the time. Obviously fluent in French, and a general positive demeanor make it easy for me to recommend him for intermediate and advanced conversation instruction! (I am a lower-intermediate speaker) He is knowledgable grammatically, but my main purpose was oral - accent,
