Communicative - I've developed an approach to teaching French that aims to get you out there, speaking and using the language as quickly as possible.
Pedagogical - as a fluent French speaker who has learnt several other languages and after many years as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language, I understand the difficulties you face when learning French. Even more importantly, I understand where these difficulties arise from and how to overcome them.
Personalized - there is no 'one size fits all' way to learn French. Each of us has a different learning style and rhythm, so by understanding your individual learning approach and adapting the program accordingly, together we get maximum results.
Practical - what you really 'need' to do, say and understand in France. I analyze your individual needs be it for work, shopping, schooling, housing, medical...a real hands-on approach and for all levels,.
Cultural - married to a Frenchman for 20 years, resident in France for 10 years, experienced intercultural trainer and unabashed Francophile - I'll help you understand France, the French and their way of doing things.
Interesting & Fun - seriously! We all learn best when we're enjoying ourselves. I won't minimize the fact that it takes time and a certain amount of dedication on your part to learn French but I'll at least make it fun.
Recommended - my former and current clients, are willing to be contacted should you wish to discuss their learning experiences with me.
