Quote Icon This course is ideal for:

people who have done some French in the past, maybe at school for O level or GCSE and now want to build on what they know. The theme for this block of lessons is ‘Et vous?’ We’ll be looking at how to say where you go on holiday, talking about where you live and your family,  as well as how to go shopping in France. We will also cover how to ask for help when out and about in France and saying how you feel. We will practise how to talk about future plans, for your birthday, for example.  The classes are relaxed and friendly and the emphasis is on communication, rather than grammatical perfection. There will be plenty of opportunities to practise simple conversations.

About

My love of French started from a young age when on holiday in France and continued throughout school and university leading to a degree in modern languages.
My first couple of graduate jobs involved working in the contracts sections of two different tour operators; giving me ample opportunity to make the most of my language skills both by phone and face to face contracting with various hoteliers, apartment owners and transport businesses.
I then chose to complete a PGCE and worked as a language teacher at secondary level for over twenty years. It was during this time that I was inspired to develop my knowledge of Spanish; I'd done a basic introduction at school and had the rudiments but decided to take it further via a combination of residential courses in Spain and intensive evening courses at my local university. I can safely say I understand what it is to be an adult learner!
More recently I have tutored adult learners. I have lots of experience at all levels: from beginners through to A level.
Work and leisure opportunities have allowed me the pleasure to travel extensively throughout France and Spain, as well as living for a year in Normandy.
