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!
Maria Ramirez Diaz
I studied a Masters in Art and Language Spanish/French in La Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and a degree L´université François Rabelais de Tours. I taught French to adults and in schools. I was moving and working in different countries, Portugal, Morocco and my last experience abroad was Dallas in Texas before arriving to UK. I like to open a window to the world with language in my classes.
I am a qualified and experienced teacher of French. I currently spend most of my time teaching Italian and French to kids in a secondary school and I like being constantly up-to-date on teaching methodologies. Passionate about languages and diversity, I developed a specific know-how in motivating and orienting students, as well as in detecting their personal needs in language learning. In my classes, the student is the real manager of his own learning, starting from his goals, passions, skills and weaknesses. I love making my lessons fun and interactive so everyone can benefit from using the language in a positive and stimulating environment.
