About me

I am a student who is particularly interested in French and Spanish. Nowadays, learning and knowing a foreign language at any level has become a key asset and something to be truly proud of in a CV, job interview or university application. I look forward to sharing my passion with others!

About my sessions

As a university student who is used to 50-55 minute lectures and seminars, I guarantee that a lot can be learned and improved upon in this amount of time, especially on a regular basis. You will be in charge of the material and topics which we will study together. Since these are YOUR studies, I want to ensure that you are always fully in control of what we cover in our sessions. Our sessions can focus on aspects such as spoken language skills, reading and writing skills, listening skills or grammar. Whether you need to practise your speaking skills for an oral exam or you are trying to plan a piece of coursework, I am here to help.

Questions Olena has answered

Which variation of 'to' (en, au, aux, à) should be used when describing 'going to' a country which is in masculine, feminine and/or in plural form?

In some cases, the preposition ‘à’ is used to signify going ‘to’ a place in a sentence. However, sometimes this preposition takes on different forms or changes entirely based on the gender of the noun which follows afterwards. In this case, we are going to look at the example of countries, because they are commonly used nouns after this preposition in conversation and writing. Masculine nouns: The preposition ‘au’ is formed when à + le are combined together, with ‘le’ being the masculine definite article. For example, Japan is a masculine proper noun, le Japon. Therefore, if we wanted to say ‘I go to Japan’, the correct preposition to use in the sentence would be ‘au’. Je vais au Japon = I go to Japan NOT - Je vais à le Japon Feminine nouns: The preposition ‘en’ is formed when à + la are combined together, with ‘la’ being the feminine definite article. For example, France is a feminine proper noun, la France. So, to take the previous example again, in order to say ‘I go to France’, the correct preposition in this case would be ‘en’. E.g. Je vais en France = I go to France NOT – Je vais à la France NOTE – ‘en’ is a preposition which is specific to countries which are feminine proper nouns only. When talking about other places which are not countries, such as the ice rink ‘la patinoire’, the combination of à + la would remain unchanged in the sentence. E.g. Je vais à la patinoire = I go to the ice rink Plural nouns : Some countries are in the plural form, such as the United States ‘les États-Unis. The preposition to use for such nouns is ‘aux’. The plural definite article, ‘les’, is replaced by this preposition. Je vais aux États-Unis = I go to the United States EXCEPTIONS: À Malte, à la Réunion En Corse, En Nouvelle-Zélande À = J’habite/Je vais à Paris, à Londres, à Berlin (à is usually left on its own with city names)In some cases, the preposition ‘à’ is used to signify going ‘to’ a place in a sentence.
