I have always loved languages and studied French and German at school and then French and Russian at university. I've also learnt a little bit of Spanish, and even tried learning Mandarin, which is very tricky! I am passionate about sharing my love of languages with others. I am friendly and patient, and my classes are lots of fun. I don't put pressure on learners, but make sure they all feel comfortable to ask questions and have a go. Communication is more important than perfection! I have some learners who have been with me for around four years, who have progressed from Improvers to Advanced level, or from Beginners to Intermediate level. I love to see learners increasing in confidence and enjoying their language learning. I have been teaching French for over 15 years and enjoy making language learning accessible and fun for everyone.

Some of our learners have been with us for 15 years! Be patient with yourself - the process of learning a language is never complete but each term you should be that bit more confident to use your newfound skills and get the most out of your travels.
