Detailed Profile in English

About me

Since 1996, I have taught mainly French and German to all Levels, that is Higher and Ordinary Level, in the Irish Second Level School System. I have taught English to Junior Cert Level, and as a Foreign Language, to all Levels.

I am a Head of Modern Languages, speak a little Spanish and Italian, as well as our Native Language, Irish.

I bring Cultural Awareness to Language Teaching, I believe that the music, songs, cookery and Art of the Target Language, make the Learner's experience more enjoyable, so that she or he feels they have learned a living language.

I am a member of The Irish French Teachers Association and registered with The Irish Teaching Council, since it's establishment , my Teaching Membership Reference Number is available if required

Teaching Approach

The Communicative Approach, where the Target Language is used all the time, or as much as possible.

For Beginners, I approach the Language with Immersion into the Target Language, based mostly on Stimulation and Eliciting of Response, the Student picking up initial words and phrases through repetition and gentle prompting. Writing and Reading, Inferral of Meaning can be built on then, as Student's Confidence builds.

For Intermediate and Advanced- Topical Issues, Expressions of Opinion, Comparisons , Commenting thereon, would be approached as the Language Content, with conversation and reading exercises.

I love Anna's lessons. She's always following your goals and is aware of your bad spots, but she doesn't push you to difficulties directly, she moves on gently, so you never feel yourself like a puppy thrown into water.
