PhD graduate wants to teach French language to enthusiastic students in Perth, WA

Methodology

Bonjour! I will make French interesting and enjoyable by encouraging students to speak basic French with a view to using French in everyday conversation. I teach practical, conversational French. I can also teach basic French grammar with a view to reading simple French.

My lessons will begin with an everyday situation, and teach students which French words and phrases to use. Then we will have practice in speaking. I use pictures and music to make the lesson fun and encourage students to speak French as much as possible.

Background

I have a gift for languages. Having studied French for six years (five at High School and one at the University of WA), I have continued to read and speak the French language. I have also learnt Greek, Latin and Japanese.
