Methodology

(Portugês abaixo)

Although I love languages, I've never really enjoyed traditional methods and always use my personal one which is playful, fast and accessible for everyone. You won't have to learn useless premade phrases , my method serves above all to learn to speak quickly and make logical connections with english or latin languages, for you to be able to improvise and guess words !

Apesar de gostar idiomas, nunca gostei os metodos tradicionais e sempre uso meu metodo pessoal, ele é ludico, rapido e accesivel pra todos. Vocês não vão ter que aprender frases inutéis o escrever muito, meu metodo sirve sobre tudo pra aprender a falar rapido e fazer conexões logicas com a lingua portuguesa, eu vou aprender pra vocês como improvisar e adivinar palavras, aproveitando da proximidade das nossas duas idiomas lindas !

Perfect! Basile is very patient and helpful, and he always adapts his tutoring to the student's needs. Also, as he knows other languages, like Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and English, the classes are really interesting and enjoyable. Highly recommended!

C
Caroline

Perfect! Highly recommended! Basile is an amazing teacher. I enjoyed every lesson with him. He has some really amazing techniques at teaching, and I learned a lot from him. He is a native French speaker, he is the perfect prof to go to if you need to improve on your oral or writing skills.

Basile's response

Caroline is a passionated student, every class with her is so much fun!!

R
Remus

Perfect! Basile is attentive, provides constructive feedback, and an overall good French tutor. I asked him what I wanted to improve and he delivered, which helped me to finally pass my OQLF exam. Merci Basile!

E
Emily

Perfect! Basile is an amazing French teacher, I can't believe how much I have learnt in the three weeks I have been studying with him in Montreal. He has great structure to his lessons and the order in which he teachers all the layers of the language. He is extremely patient and a great communicator so very easy to organise lessons with. Because Basile speaks multiple languages he is great at making links between them which is a huge asset if you know or are learning another language (e.g Spanish for me) as it definitely helps things to make sense. I would highly recommend Basile.

Basile's response

Emily is both passionated and a fast learner ! She is also a very sweet person, I really enjoy teaching her french !

H
Haoran

Perfect! Basile is a wonderful tutor. He is really good with many languages so he is able to build connections instead of simply teaching the technical stuff. He is very easy to communicate and he pays good attention to his student. I recommend him if you are really hoping to improve your language skills and the ability to communicate.

Basile est un prof. remarquable. J'ai connus, au Brésil, quelqu'un très vivant et intelligent, porté d’une humeur captivant, en plus. Ces caractères de Basile permettent que l'élève apprendre la langue facilement, avec plaisir et confiance en sois.

Zoé

I met Basile because he has helped my brother to study for his recession exams over several summers.
I believe he is a great teacher who is able to use fun and every day life examples to fuel motivation and foster interest on his students behalf.
For instance, using my younger brother's passion for hip hop, Basile created engaging exercises for him by applying some of the theory to his favorite songs.
I highly recommend Basile as a teacher!
Not only has he got a great energy and a lively nature as a person, but the ease with which he is able to adapt to one's particular needs and learning style truly make him a great tutor.

Héloïse

Basile is a good teacher. Trustworthy and reliable, he can really adapt his classes to your level and your needs!

Remy

I come from Australia and I spent a year in Basiles hometown, il m'a aidé beaucoup avec mon français et toujours avec un vrai vouloir j'améliore. Je peux dire avec certitude qu'il vous donnera le soutien et l'amusement pendant que vous apprenez.

Fred

Basile's interview

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Basile — I was born and raised in Wallonia, the French-speaking part of Belgium, making it my mother tongue.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Basile — An infinity of names come to my mind as I read the question but being Belgian I must mention Jacques Brel, the most appreciated Belgian singer of all times.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?
Basile — French is full of funny saying that include animals such as J'ai d'autres chats à fouetter literally meaning I have other cats to whip (Let me mind my own business)
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Basile — French is my mother tongue and will always be the language in which I can truly express my deep thoughts. The more I get to speak new languages the more I realise how French is rich and fascinating!
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Basile — For an English speaker, the conjugation is definitely a struggle, so is it in any Latin language. But apart from that, what makes French so confusing is all its silent letters and all the exceptions each rule has!
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Basile — When I was in Brazil, for an internship in the tourism area, I decided to work in a language school. I didn't like their teaching method which I was force to follow. I thought I could do much better teaching my own way and started to do so with the firm intention to keep doing it once in Canada, which I now do on a daily basis.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Basile — Every time I traveled, I learnt a new language: I left Belgium for Australia when I was 19 with a very basic level of English and when I got there, it was very complicated for me to communicate with people and to find a job, which really frustrated me. It is that frustration that gave me the strength to learn faster and realise I was actually good at it! After Australia and before starting studies in Belgium I went to Bali for a month and quickly got to speak with the local people in their beautiful language. After 2 years of study back home I had the amazing opportunity of doing an exchange year in Spain where I learnt so fast Spanish that I had plenty of time to start learning Italian with my Italian friends studying there too. Then I went to Brazil after only 1 month learning Portuguese at home, and it took me about 2 months to became fluent in it!
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in language?
Basile — All the mention above testifies of my passion for languages and I think passion is the key to be a good teacher in any subjects. I always enjoyed explaining people how to make logical connections between their language and mine and since I arrived in Canada I can finally teach as much as I wanted, allowing me to live what I like to call the Canadian Dream!!
