..those who can have basic conversations in French about standard topics like buying and ordering food, asking for directions, making reservations and explaining possible holiday problems in a simple way…all using the present tense.  This unit goes back to introducing yourself and getting to know French people  but it does so in a more in-depth manner. The present tense of modal verbs are covered so that you can add more nuance to your statements and a special use of the present tense is used that allows you to talk about past events in a way. The present tense of ‘aller’ is also covered to help form a kind of future tense.future events.

Since my first of many twinning exchange trips to the Loire Valley in France and to the Ruhr Valley in Germany in my teens, I have always loved foreign languages, cultures and people (and of course the food and drink too). As part of my university studies, I spent eight months in Lorraine on the border with Belgium and Luxembourg, four months in Nordrhein-Westfalen on the border with the Netherlands and four months in the city of Lyon. Having only started learning Spanish as an adult, I have not spent extensive amounts of time in Spain but I have holidayed there as well as in Peru. Before becoming a licencee with Language for Fun, I taught for twelve years in secondary schools, including one in Zambia near the border with French-speaking Congo. I have had many adventures in many Francophone, Germanophone and Hispanophone countries where my language 'skills' have both saved the day AND got me into a bit of hot water! Let me use MY cringeworthy past experiences of making hilarious mistakes save YOU from doing the same.
When I am not teaching or learning languages (I speak Dutch now too), I enjoy swimming, reading and walking but I am particularly passionate about the performing arts; I think you will be able to tell this when you meet me! I look forward to meeting YOU!
