Literary translator gives modern Greek lessons all levels - original method tested and approved

Methodology

As a painter by training, the relationship between text and image is central to my work because I mainly work as a writer and illustrator of children's books. I spent my childhood in Greece where I was born but I have lived in France for a very long time. Being perfectly bilingual, I am particularly sensitive to language and teaching modern Greek allows me to keep alive the relationship with my mother tongue, which is the main source of my inspiration. The books I have translated are on the shelves of the Greek bookshops and on ARTE, it is not impossible to come across some documentary about Greece, subtitled in French by me ... As a teacher I have a long experience in the subjects that correspond to my initial training: drawing and painting. I began to teach modern Greek three years ago on the occasion of a friendly request and since then I have perfected my original and effective method: - Conversation and discovery of contemporary Greece. - Vocabulary, origin of words, expressions, grammar bases and syntax. - Numerous text, image and audio media, depending on the students' interests and level of understanding. - Consolidation of knowledge through practical exercises. - Methodology based on the association of ideas, repetition and repentance. - Many tips and anecdotes to make the lessons easy and pleasant to follow.

Perfect! Merci à Demetra pour ces excellents cours. Ils sont chaque fois riches et variés.J'apprends beaucoup sur la façon de s'exprimer des grecques. Il n'y a jamais de traduction mot par mot, mais des façons de dire. On apprends vraiment le grec.
C'est une super superprof que je remercie aussi pour sa patience et ces encouragements.

Demetra's response

Je suis ravie de donner des cours à Susanna qui est une personne très gentille et très sensible. Elle parle déjà beaucoup de langues ce qui est une excellente entrée en la matière. Je suis flattée qu'elle s'intéresse également au grec moderne et qu'elle m'ait choisie comme prof. Comme elle a déjà un bon niveau, je peux approfondir, étudier par exemple des textes et des expressions grecques, comparez les différentes façons de penser inhérentes au langage, ce qui est un réel plaisir. Merci Susanna!

Perfect! Un grand merci à Demetra pour son commentaire: je prends énormément de plaisir aux cours qu'elle me donne: les échanges sont riches, j'apprends plein de choses: notamment sur la langue grecque - bien évidemment - mais également sur la Grèce, la façon de vivre de ses habitants, leur richesse, leur culture, c'est un voyage passionnant et dépaysant! Même si je suis très attirée par ce beau pays depuis longtemps, je ne connais malheureusement pas beaucoup de Grecs, la rencontre avec Demetra est donc providentielle! Je me réjouis de poursuivre les cours et de me familiariser de plus en plus avec cette belle langue. Je tiens également à préciser que Demetra est extrêmement patiente, c'est un réel plaisir de pouvoir apprendre dans ces conditions: sans stress, ni jugement, juste pour le plaisir!

Demetra's response

C'est un réel plaisir d'échanger avec Florence car elle est particulièrement sensible à la culture que la langue véhicule et animée par un vif intérêt pour le peuple grec. De plus, elle avance vite dans son apprentissage grâce à des cours quasi quotidiens.

Perfect! Super bon prof qui n’hésite pas à me pousser dans mes retranchements pour puiser les connaissances déjà acquises ! À toutes celles et ceux qui veulent appréhender la langue grecque, je vous recommande sans aucun doute Demetra !

Evelyne

Demetra's response

Je suis très heureuse de donner des cours à Evelyne qui est très régulière à nos RDV. Elle connaît déjà pas mal de choses en grec et elle continue à prendre des cours collectifs ailleurs, motivée par un réel amour pour la Grèce. Essayer de mobiliser ses connaissances, lui donner confiance en elle et la faire progresser à l'oral, constitue un réel défi de pédagogue pour moi. Cela m'oblige à chercher toujours de nouvelles idées pour de petits exercices à faire, taillés sur mesure.

J'ai passé plusieurs moments avec Demetra : elle m'a aidé à réaliser mon dossier pour entrer en école d'art, et donné de bons conseils pratiques pour apprendre à présenter et parler de mon travail.
C'est une personne à l'écoute, et ses cours m'ont permis de prendre confiance en moi.
Finalement, j'ai été admis dans l'école que je voulais, sans trop de stress lors des entretiens !

Depuis notre rencontre cet été, ma fille de 12 ans suit régulièrement des séances de dessin avec Demetra, pendant les week-ends et les vacances scolaires. A la fois loisir et complément scolaire, ces séances s'avèrent bénéfiques à son épanouissement car elles canalisent son énergie créative tout en mobilisant ses connaissances et ses capacités de concentration.
