    French Teachers

    Catherine Yeates

    Hi my name is Catherine and I taught in local secondary schools for 14 years before recently having a career change. I have visited France many times and know the Vendee region especially well but I have also lived in Normandy and Burgundy for short periods. As my class can confirm, my knowledge about France is diverse (even eclectic) and we have had discussions about everything from politics to the Tour de France. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of language and culture and hope that my students increase their understanding of France as well as the French language.

    Jon Harris

    My name is Jonathon (or Jon) and I have taught languages for a number of years. I have previously lived in the South West of France, spending six years there as a teenager! I have also lived in Italy. I am enthusiastic about teaching, as well as learning, languages and enjoy helping others to develop their language skills, while also learning about culture.
