About me and French
I believe I was already in love with the French language long before I took a course about The French Civilization and The French Language at L’Extension Universitaire de La Sorbonne in Paris.
This passion for learning and teaching French in me should go back to my childhood; French was the secret language between my Mom and my Dad. Each time I heard a conversation between them I would spot one word .”Mom,what does ‘les enfants’ mean in French?” or “Dad,what is ‘glace’ in French?” and I would conclude that they would soon surprise us with some ice-cream!
Later, I would make puzzles with the words that I had learned and I would speak French to myself sitting in the back of the car.
This is the basis of the method I use to teach children how to learn a language.
I put forward an interesting topic; a picture, a story or a game that urges them on to listen and to understand . Then, it’s easy to make them use their knowledge of the language as much as they can.
