Degree: Modern Languages (French + Russian) (Bachelors) - Exeter University
I'm Elinor, I'm in my second year at Exeter University studying Modern Languages. I am passionate about languages, and helping others to learn, whilst I understand that for many it can be a frustrating challenge. I want to bring languages to life and help you to get past the tedious, but necessary, grammar work to a high language level!
I studied both French and Spanish to A level, achieving grade A*s at GCSE and As at A level. Whilst choosing my university degree, I decided to learn Russian from scratch at uni which I have been studying for two years now on a very intensive course. I have just finished my year abroad in Russia where I studied Russian at universities in St Petersburg and Yaroslavl.
Before starting university, I decided to spend a year in Paris working as an au pair. From this, I have gained lots of experience of teaching children and young children a language (for them- English) whilst keeping them engaged and motivated. By living there, I became fluent in French.
I have experience in being a subject tutor for French for younger pupils at school. I was an assistant teacher for children and young people's ballet and musical theatre classes.
I would be happy to tutor French (A level & GCSE), Spanish and Russian (GCSE). Remember to tell me what you're struggling with and which exam board you're taking!
I look forward to meeting you and working together to improve grades and the life skill that is speaking a foreign language!

To form a negative phrase in French there are always two parts, called particles, which most go around the verb. For example, 'ne...pas': the 'ne' must come before the verb and the 'pas' must come after the verb. E.g. 'Je ne joue pas'.
In French, there are many other negative phrases, some of which are not negative in English. Here are some examples with their English meanings, they are used in exactly the same way as in the above example:
- 'ne...jamais' = never
- 'ne...que' = only
- 'ne...personne' = no one
- 'ne...plus' = no longer/ no more
- 'ne...rien' = anything/ nothing
In spoken French, the first negative particle 'ne' is often omitted (not said), but it must be included in written French.
