I like to interact with my students because the more they will practice the language, the closer they will get to their goals. Indeed, the most effective way to study and learn a language is basically to speak it. Together, we will then be able to reach a new level.

I love teaching French and I enjoy sharing my experience, learnings and culture with my students.
My teaching method depends on my students needs, level, goals and language skills as well as learning styles.
With me, my students will be learning French through various practical challenges and conversational activites focused on the grammar, the vocabulary, the pronunciation and the cultural aspects of the language.
I will always make sure that each online session is prepared according the requests and interests of my students, to make it the most effective.
