I have been a teacher since 2000, but started teaching languages when I took a CELTA course and moved to France in 2009. I stayed 4 years, learnt French and taught lots of English! I fell in love with the French language and the culture. Since moving back to Southampton, I have started completed a DELTA teaching qualification and started teaching French. I love helping people on their journey to speaking French. I see language learning as a lifelong journey that you can dip in and out of and learn through a variety of methods throughout life, although an organised class is a great place to start!
What I like most about teaching is trying to pass on my love of the French language and the numerous cultural treasures that can be found throughout the French-speaking world. I always try to make my lessons as varied, dynamic and interesting as possible. From games to videos and general interest conversation topics, teaching a language offers infinite chances to have a really enjoyable time in the classroom. Finally, I delight in meeting different people and having more and more complex exchanges with them in French.
