Ilias

(Greece - Petro-chemical engineer)

Eva is both knowledgeable and resourceful, leading to a course that is dynamic, interactive and which often doesn’t feel like a class at all. I deeply profited from our class. I cannot recommend Eva enough!

Jeffrey

(NZ - Expat dad)

Eva is young, vibrant, creative, stimulating, and completely bilingual. Our children have learned a lot from her, and they both look forward to her classes, which speaks volumes for her skill as a teacher. I have already recommended her to many of our friends who are all very happy with her too.

Jeffrey

(NZ - Expat dad)

Our kids and some other friends did a bilingual atelier a couple of years ago and had a ball - cooking, acting, and exploring in French and English. If anyone asks the PTA for help in finding french tutoring, I think they be hard pressed to find better.

Laura

(US - Expat mum)

Callie is always asking about you and is wondering when her next French lesson is. It's been a long summer with no French ! Let's get back on track and get the lessons started again !

Ben

(Australian - Strategy consultant)

When I first arrived in Paris for a six month secondment my French definitely needed improvement ! What I really appreciated was that Eva spent considerable time individually, tailoring exercises to address any common errors I made. As a result, both my spoken and written French improved far more quickly than any "exercise book approach" of most teachers would have allowed. After several months of weekly classes I was able to work and conduct meetings in French

Susan

(US - Expat mum)

Expats really need someone like you they can call with the little glitches so they can get them worked out easily instead of compounding frustrations. (...) You were a great help with some of the things I was confused by (remember my first trip taking the boys to a pediatrician in Paris and my shock at the bill). Thank you for all your time and assistance.

Nikita

(Russian - IT engineer)

Eva tries to find an individual approach for every student which makes the learning much more effective. She is always very well prepared to the lessons and time flies. My course was pretty short and I was satisfied with the fact that we were focussing on practising the basic language concepts instead of trying to cover as much as possible. I would definitely recommend choosing "L'atelier Biligue" for my friends.

Steve

(US Software engineer)

I was most pleased with how quickly Eva was able to determine my existing knowledge and competency and not only quickly create a program tailored to where I was with learning the language but also to my style of learning and interest. She created exercises focused around the vocabulary that was most useful to me and allowed all the supporting elements of grammar, conjugation and style to just sort of fill in around what I was excited to learn. Frequently I left our lessons feeling like I had just had a casual conversation with a friend and was often surprised a few days later when I used words or phrases I did not realize I had even learned. I wish I had met her the day I arrived in France.

TEACHING METHODS

CUSTOMIZED CLASSES : Each class is designed according to your very specific needs and progress and not according to what a book will have you learn regardless of your personal situation. The material I use is varied and ranges from language manuals, internet sources, national and local newspapers to drawings, audio tracks and video excerpts.

IMPROVE YOUR PRONUNCIATION...RECORD OUR CLASSES : so many students seem to struggle with their pronunciation. Waste no time : it's all about getting used to the sounds right away and practising them. Recording our lessons should help you improve faster. You will then be able to listen to yourself, hear my corrections and then reproduce the correct version.

REGULAR CHECK UP... so you never lose sight of your target :I usually assess your level when we first meet and then every 4-6 lessons on average. It is of crucial importance that you should know where you're coming from, where you're going to and how much you've still got to reach your goal.

FRENCH AND EXPATRIATION : Let's be practical ! It is of uttermost importance that my students should soon be able to deal with the French and our French system by themselves. My teaching is also therefore very much inspired by all the worries and everyday life issues an expat has to sort out in France. I can also guide you in French to help you deal with a specific situation you're facing. In other words, I'm not just a teacher. I will also support you every step of the way to make your life as an expat much easier thanks to my experience and knowledge of the French.

Workshop held in a cosy and quiet café in RUEIL by the RER



  • Become a writer in French ! This workshop is designed for those who have reached the B1 level in French but are still a bit unsure about their skills, both oral and written and who are feeling lonely and purposeless in their French learning. By joining this group, you will not only get to speak French with co-learners, improve your French vocabulary and grammar but also get to do a rewarding activity by using vacabulary in a context of your own creation supported, guided and corrected by the teacher all along the way. This workshop is nothing but a French lesson in disguise with a very pragmatic and useful purpose.
  • Skills needed : oral and written expression AND comprehension
  • Contents : warm-up exercises, solo and team work (stories written by yourself or with a partner), memory games and activities to improve your vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar, reading your productions and listening to others. Each session follows a very structured pattern designed by the teacher and aims at developing a leading theme throughout 8 sessions. At the end of the 8 sessions, a whole story or several will have been imagined and written by all attendees.
  • IN FRENCH ONLY. NO HOMEWORK.
  • 4-6 attendees

THE TEACHER


Le professeur

EVA HOCQUARD


Creator of

L'Atelier Bilingue

Your teacher and day-to-day relocation assistant

  • I started off as an English teacher in 2001 in the Parisian region, first working for the Education Nationale (French School system) and teaching 11-18 year-olds. I soon realised there was so much more to learn and see out there, so many more people to meet and so much more experience to gain to develop my pedagogy than by just staying in the same old system for the rest of my life.
  • So, off I went to England where I did a few different jobs, amongst which working as a project manager assistant for East Sussex County Council (South East England) where I helped develop green tourism between England and France; being a tourist guide in East Sussex ; working as a PA and Education administrator for English Touring Opera in London ; and of course…teaching French!
  • I then decided it was time for me to go back to France and use my bilingualism and experience as a former expat to take up my all time passion: teaching French and English. And so years after starting L'Atelier Bilingue, I'm still here and excited to work with you.

I look forward to sharing it all with you.
