About Me

I am Alice Ayel, I am originally from Paris and I have been a teacher of modern languages (French, Spanish and English) for more than 15 years now. I have strong GCSE, IB and IGCSE experience and my students achieve excellent results and enjoy learning another language.

I strongly believe anyone can speak multiple languages because our human brain is hard- wired to do so. Learning another language opens up new opportunities and gives perspectives that you might never have encountered otherwise.

The natural way to acquire another language is to first listen to the language. You already did it when you were a baby. Your parents and carers kept talking to you and telling you stories. The same happens here, you first listen to the language you want to learn and then speak it when you are ready!

I teach fluency and proficiency through stories. Stories are intriguing, they capture your imagination and instead of focusing on learning a language, you are focusing on comprehending a story. The language itself is not your worry anymore, you are interested in the content, in knowing what is going to happen next in the story and therefore you are acquiring the language without noticing it.

When you have a French session with me, you create and tell your own stories, you listen to stories, you read stories. Your brain stores the new words effortlessly and permanently because it generates multiple connections and therefore you become fluent in French fast!

When you understand and have fun listening to stories and creating your own stories in French, you get better in French.
