Detailed Profile in English

About me

Hi, I'm a young French woman living in the south of France with my 4 year old son.

I'm a French teacher in Antibes, Cote d'Azur in a private school for over 10 years now and I really enjoy my job. I'm meeting a lot of great people, and having a very good time teaching my native language.

I've been passionate about languages and travel since I was young! I think it is a really nice experience to travel and to be able to speak with native people. It creates a different link between you and the local people making your trip so much more wonderful!

I have travelled to many countries and lived there as well for a while. It has been a great way for me to really catch up with a different culture and a very good and nice way to learn and practise a new language.

Qualifications & Experience

I studied Sciences and techniques of Physics Activities for 5 years at the university in Dijon, with a speciality in education.

After that, I started to travel in order to learn languages, I studied Spanish in Spain and English in England.

Then I obtained a diploma to teach French to foreign people called DAEFLE, it's a diploma from the French Alliance.

I first started teaching in different schools in Bogota, Colombia and after one year I came back to France where I've been working for over 10 years in a great private school in the south of France.

Teaching Approach

I think it is very important to adapt oneself to each new student In order to have a really personal approach.

First, I want to know your goals so I can adapt my feedback, and the aims of the class. I'm used to teaching all levels, especially beginners.

Speaking and using grammatical structures during speaking exercises are really important, as is pronunciation.

The purpose of learning a new language is to be understood and to understand, in summary to be good at communication which is the base of all languages.

So we will work in a way to obtain that result : good communication!
