Bonjour! My name is Shere, welcome to LearnPlant! Born and brought up in Paris, my early days were clouded by the fresh mist of french aromas from the local florist at the end of my street and with fresh baguette and cheese that my mother would bring from the local boulangerie. That scent with a heartthrob cologne and its alluring aroma has always reminded me of the essence of french culture and its attributes.

I always connect the memories of France where ever I travel to keep the French alive in me. My passion for the French Language has always attested an extra mile to conjugate different cultural aspirations to tailor as per one’s need.
In 2010 my journey with French kicked off with Alliance Française in the attainment of a professional FLE teacher. I got my DUFLE ( Diplome Universitaire Français Langue Etrangère) and became a certified examiner of the DELF through the Alliance Française, which created leverage to attain a Masters's degree in Teaching French as a Second Language in France.
As years passed by I was enthused With my husband’s work of moving from one county to another due to the nature of his regional postings. The experience of different countries not only enriched the French language skills in me but helped to formulate the couture of challenges and dynamics that each student would bring. In 2012 I taught french to women who had migrated to France in Paris, an initiation by the government to sustain and help the lives of the immigrants. In 2013 in Malaysia, not only did I teach FLE but got the chance to promote the language and create curriculums for the institution I was working with.
As time passed by I received more opportunities to teach profound entities such as university-going students, researchers working with the United Nations University, trainers working in the aviation field. They all had different needs but one thing in common, French!
In 2016 whilst I was in Singapore, I adapted the method of teaching online, the technology and its flat blanket provided me with an exceptional experience to set a paradigm shift in learning and teaching;
Online learning offers teachers an efficient way to deliver lessons to students. Online learning has several tools such as videos, PDFs, podcasts, and teachers can use all these tools as part of their lesson plans. By extending the lesson plan beyond traditional textbooks to include online resources, I have become more efficient.
Since online classes can be taken from home or location of choice, there are fewer chances of students missing out on lessons.
Another advantage of online learning is reduced financial costs. Online education is far more affordable as compared to physical learning. This is because online learning eliminates the cost points of student transportation, student meals, and most importantly, real estate. Additionally, all the course or study materials are available online, thus creating a paperless learning environment that is more affordable, while also being beneficial to the environment. With LearnPlant I encourage planting trees at no added cost as the sum of the classes gained adds to the environment. Watch Video
Another advantage of online education is that it allows students to attend classes from any location of their choice. It also allows schools to reach out to a more extensive network of students, instead of being restricted by geographical boundaries. Additionally, online lectures can be recorded, archived, and shared for future reference. This allows students to access the learning material at a time of their comfort, and this is where a one-to-one tutoring’s idea came as www.learnplant.com. Thus, online learning offers students the accessibility of time and place in education.
Every student has a different learning journey and a different learning style. Some students are visual learners, while some students prefer to learn through audio. Similarly, some students thrive in the classroom, and other students are solo learners who get distracted by large groups.
In 2018 Seeing a constant growth and demand for learning French I decided to launch my own online platform www.learnplant.com, where I customise my teaching as per each student’s need. Experience 1:1 classes, Give 1 to 1 Attention, to Faster progress in achieving language and proficiency according to CEFR with Flexibility in Booking, Scheduling, and Rescheduling classes. And finally to reduce the carbon footprint by Participating in reforestation programs for the students at no additional cost.
Sherebanu wants to share her language and its mysteries with the world! She will strive to offer you the concrete essentials to learn French, between simulation and basic grammatical phrases, with enthusiasm for many topics!
She speaks and understands English extremely well, but she tries to avoid using it in class as much as possible because the purpose is French.
Shere is a French lesson online tutor with teaching credentials and expertise who can create a learning strategy for you, depending on your abilities and requirements. She aspires to teach and clarify different subjects to you and assign fun activities and homework.
Being a native advanced French speaker who can help talk through material you're finding difficult, drill you on things you need to practice, and give you valuable speaking practice.
Your time period plus your goals will define how intense and quickly you'll have to study, as well as how you'll prioritize your learning content. Shere pays the utmost attention to how your course should be prepared.
When you wish to be up and running in six months to shift to a French-speaking region, Shere helps you concentrate on studying through your grammar curriculum and memorizing the fundamental grammatical principles. You'll most likely speak a more formal version of French, but folks will understand you quite well. You may learn the rest after shifting to a French-speaking region.
As you have a bit more time on your hands (or no defined timetable), you may relax. Sherebanu, your online French tutor, prepares a perfect concoction for your grammar studies using other resources to keep things interesting. During your course, you may be likely to escape the intermediary stage if you expand your vocabulary via intensive reading with Shere.
A bit of advice: students should not expect to acquire an elite level of French in six weeks. Moving up from the intermediate level necessitates absorbing a large amount of real-world French input, which takes time.
Getting the sound right!
When we discuss pronunciation, we're assuming you're referring to your skill to mold your mouth into the proper shape to create certain French sounds. (And your capacity to overcome your self-doubts!)
The first stage is to be aware of and able to perceive the noises you're attempting to emulate. Sherebanu provides a fantastic one-to-one online French lesson on sounds that breaks down all the unusual sounds patiently. She also provides a detailed written tutorial on French pronunciation.
It's difficult to practice your speech and accent when learning on your own since what you truly lack is feedback. As you will utter a word or a phrase, Shere could tell you and grade on how well you performed.
Without such feedback, there's a potential you'll develop undesirable patterns in your language, which may be difficult to break.
Your ability to apply writing/spelling is heavily reliant on your ability to receive consistent feedback and revisions. A program or artificial intelligence (AI) can only do so much; after you've progressed far beyond phrases in your French lessons online, you'll need a caring and professional tutor like Sherebanu to review and revise your work. Shere will offer you enjoy activities that will involve unplanned and unscripted discussions, for which you will receive immediate feedback on what you are doing correctly or incorrectly.
LearnPlant is an online language learning platform founded by Sherebanu to meet the increasing demand for learning languages. Her vast experienced in teaching French combined with her passion for environmental conservation contributed a lot to setting up this platform where she felt the need to teach and spread the French language and culture. Although there are many ways to learn languages online, it is her objective to learn the needs of a student in order to make learning efficient and fun at the same time. Learn French with Shere is the first product of LearnPlant where Shere teaches the language directly to her students face to face online. This has been a success so far with Shere receiving bookings throughout the months since she started this service.
