Hi! I'm Sophie, I am currently a 3rd year Law with French student at the University of Bristol, although currently studying in Bordeaux! I am a big fan of all things 'words' and languages, and hope to be able to inspire the same kind of passion in you.
Growing up in a german household, I understand the difficulties of the German language, particularly when it comes to pronunciation. Thus, if you need any help with oral practice, I would be more than happy to practice with you, or even improve your free speech.
If you are bored of the ‘traditional’ teaching methods, then I may be able to help. I will try to explain things in a concise and inventive way, and don’t worry if you don’t understand the first time round - that is what I am there for! I spent my summer teaching German children English, and relished that opportunity to plan lessons and think of creative ways to teach - let me do the same for you!
How would the lessons work?
The ‘problem’ (although not really a problem, as it is what makes it fun) with languages is that you never know what will come up, and that there is rarely a routine answer. I propose that if you do have any specific questions, such as French grammar, you let me know in advance so that we can go through it together, and then we work on utilising your new-found knowledge in more practical settings, such as conversation.
I look forward to meeting you, and our fun sessions together!

PQA stands for 'point, quote, analysis'. In a literary text, you may be asked to highlight the features which strenghten your essay's argument. To do so, it is best to first:
1) State the point you wish to make (point)
2) Show evidence of the point you wish to make (either a direct quote, or paraphrasing) (quote)
3) Analyse why this piece of evidence shows the point you wish to make. (analysis)see more
The conditionnel is used either as a form of politesse, to express a wish, to express a possibility, or an action completed with a condition.
The subjunctive is usually used to express doubt ("je ne suis pas sure que'), a possibility ('il est possible que'), or following certain phrases, such as 'bienque', 'pourvu que' and 'quoique'. It may also be used when a sentence is begins with 'que'.see more
