I am a French native speaker and I was trained as a foreign language teacher (both English and French). I taught students to the Baccalauréat level for seven years. Thus I can contribute to the learners' academic achievement. Besides I am well-trained in exam preparation as in the course of my professional career I trained students for Cambridge, IELTS and Leaving Cert French oral exam.
I am also used to teaching foreign learners. I taught adult professionals at Google in Dublin. I helped them develop their language skills so they could move in their professional career. My classes were tailored to their needs. Alongside that job I was also an exam trainer for Leaving Cert students. I gave them the tools they needed to improve their oral practice of French.
I am able to put myself in the place of foreign students. I can understand and anticipate the difficulties foreign students are confronted with in their learning process and I always strive to create a positive and supportive environment.
The experiences described above show my endeavour to always adapt to the learners' individual needs.
Besides I am convinced that a hands on and communication oriented pedagogy makes language learning more effective and it allows the students to feel more confident while speaking the target language, so that it creates a positive environment.
I would like to focus on online language learning as I believe that this approach makes it easy to adapt to people's needs and lifestyle. Indeed the cloud-based approach makes it easier for learners to manage their learning. It makes it accessible to a wide range of learners.
