Bonjour, je m’appelle Heather.
After 22 years of living in France, completely submerged in French culture and rarely speaking English, I returned to the UK in 2017 and started to teach the language that I love to adults in small, sociable, fun, friendly groups.
I arrived in France at the age of 24 with literally a handful of words like maison, merci and baguette (I didn't learn French at school) and proceeded to learn the language in situ through immersion. As a result I made all the hilarious mistakes that English speakers make when learning the language so I'm perfectly situated to help you avoid them but I also smiled a lot (from nerves) and laughed laughed laughed.
Upon my return to the UK I looked for a teaching method that put the joy of learning the language at the very top of it's priority list as I had read about how we learn quicker when we are relaxed and I knew, from experience, that if I had picked up a grammar book when I had arrived in France I would have been too scared to open my mouth.
It has been a great pleasure to help so many people to improve and perfect their French conversation skills, from complete beginner to confident conversationalist. I can honestly say that I really do teach language for FUN. I currently teach 7 classes at different levels of ability so give me a call and come and try a class.
