Individual tuition by phone or Skype

ALFIA has a structured approach. It focuses on oral communication, improves written language if necessary, includes general vocabulary and/or vocabulary specific to my job

Each course is personalized following a 15 minute telephone/Skype conversation with ALFIA’s course manager: please leave me a message or call me on +33 1 84 18 01 70.


  • Speaking: improve fluency, intonation and pronunciation, use more complex tenses and modes to talk about future possibilities and probability
  • Listening: understand faster in order to catch and retain the main points of clear standard speech on familiar matters encountered in work and leisure
  • Reading: understand simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest.
  • Writing: write personal and professional emails, short texts and reports


Be able to communicate with a certain degree of ease in social and professional situations based on different themes according to priority:

  • have a relatively fluid conversation about personal and professional subjects

  • talk about future possibilities, give a forecast
  • talk about results and figures
  • describe my professional experience
  • answer questions in a job interview

Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment : CEFR.

The CEFR describes foreign language proficiency at six levels: A1 and A2, B1 and B2, C1 and C2.

Based on empirical research and widespread consultation, this scheme makes it possible:to establish learning and teaching objectives and to provide a basis for training managers to recognise language qualifications and levels.
