About me

ABOUT ME

Hello all!

I am a first year modern foreign languages student at Southampton University. My course programme (Integrated Masters in Language and Society, French & German) is going to be a lot of work but thoroughly enjoyable! I am hoping to share my passion for MFLs and language learning with you and ensure you secure the grades you need to smash your exams or make it into high education like myself. Being a first year, my A Level and even GCSE days aren't too far behind me so I still have a good idea of what is required to fly high at both levels.

THE SESSIONS

I think it's of most importance that we cover whatever you feel you'd like to cover in our sessions. Whether that's grammar explanations, help with learning/expanding vocab or practising any oral exam preparation with me. I like to use colours, fonts and generally make things very interactive as I am a visual learner myself. I only wish I knew about MyTutorWeb throughout my secondary/college years!

WANT TO GET IN CONTACT WITH ME? (YAY!)

If you have any questions for me about, well anything, don't hesistate to send me a WebMail on this site. Or if you want to book a Meet The Tutor session then that is also possible from this site.

What would be some handy linking words to use in my French writing - particularly essays?

When writing a French essay, it's important to not forget to follow a good, coherent structure just like you would when writing an essay in English or any other native language. 

Introduce your essay by reformulating the set question, plan a main body according to the task at hand and then don't forget a summarising conclusion which links back to the set question and highlights your stance on it.

Along the way, some useful linking words to join your paragraphs would be: 

Ainsi (thus), par conséquent (consequently), autrement dit (in other words), en effet (in effect), en fait (indeed), en plus de cela (on top of this), de toute façon (in any case), bien que/quoique + subjunctive (although), malgré ça (despite that)

When do I need to use 'sein' as the auxiliary verb in the past perfect tense?

Generally, we conjugate the verb 'sein' for any verb that indicates i) movement ii) or a change in state. For example i) gehen = to go and suggests an act of movement therefore we would have to conjugate the sein auxiliary and use with the past participle which is gegangen. Hence, 'I went' = ...

Generally, we conjugate the verb 'sein' for any verb that indicates i) movement ii) or a change in state.

For example i) gehen = to go and suggests an act of movement therefore we would have to conjugate the sein auxiliary and use with the past participle which is gegangen. Hence, 'I went' = Ich bin gegangen. (Bin being the conjugated form of sein for the subject ich)

One thing to be aware of is that verbs that indicate a lack of movement also take sein. eg. bleiben = to stay. Hence, 'I stayed at home' = Ich bin zu Hause geblieben

ii) Verbs that suggest a change in state could include einfrieren (to freeze), schmelzen (to melt) schalfen (to sleep) aufwachen (to wake up). Any verbs that mean something/someone has transformed from one state to another. eg. 'I woke up' = Ich bin aufgewachen.
