About me

Hello there! My name is Hettie Brown, I am 18 years old and I am currently studying Modern Languages at the University of Birmingham. I study French, German and Beginners' Spanish here. At GCSE I recieved 8A*s and one A and for A Level (French, German and Geography) I recieved 2A*s and an A (in Geography).

I have always been fascinated with languages and love the way they work and interlink with eachother, and then allow you to become a more global person, opening doors to communicate with more and more people! I know that to fully master a language you have to understand the explanations behind the grammatical rules, but this can be easily learnt when explained in the right way.

I am also a very passionate physical geographer, and hope I can help anyone who may want it!

About my sessions

It is important that the students themselves have a say into the structure of the tutorials because everyone learns differently. I will take into account what each individual student would like to focus on or struggles with and we will work with this going over the fundamental rules as well as completing and going through exercises to reinforce what has been learnt.

Progress can be measured by the increasing marks on exercises, vocabulary tests or even essays!

Questions Hettie has answered

How do I know the gender of a noun?

In German, we have 3 different genders: masculine, feminine and neuter. Most of the time you simply have to learn off by heart which nouns are which gender, however there are some rules which can help. For instance; days, months, seasons, most weather elements, points on the compass, and most nouns ending in -en are masculine. Nouns ending in -ig, -ling, -ant and -us are generally masculine. Nouns ending in -ei, -schaft, -heit, -keit, -ung, -ion, -ik, -ie, -enz, -ur are all feminine. Most metals, human and animal babies, verb infinitives turned into nouns and nouns ending in -ment or -ium are all neuter. Learning the genders of nouns is so important because this is what allows you to correctly agree the adjective with the noun!In German, we have 3 different genders: masculine, feminine and neuter.

How is a meander formed?

With distance downstream, the river gains more energy and a higher volume of water (as shown in Bradshaw's Model). Because the channel has increased in size, there is less friction. As the river erodes laterally (to the sides), it forms large bends and loops according to where the ground is easier to erode (ie where there is sofer, less resistant rock). A meander forms due to both deposition and erosion on either side of the river channel. On the outside of the bend, there is more energy due to decreased friction, so the force of the water erodes and undercuts the bank on this side. However on the inside of the bend, where the river flow is slower, the material is deposited. This side is called the "slip off slope".With distance downstream, the river gains more energy and a higher volume of water (as shown in Bradshaw's Model).

In French, does the adjective come before or after the noun which it describes?

Unlike in English, the adjective generally comes after the noun it describes in French for example to say "the red car", you would say "la voiture rouge". However, there are some common adjectives which precede the noun- adjectives describing size, goodness, age (old or new), or beauty, for example when saying "the big house", you would say "la grande maison".Unlike in English, the adjective generally comes after the noun it describes in French for example to say "the red car", you would say "la voiture rouge".
