I got a licence degree in Vietnamese culture, literature and language with a speciality in teaching French as a Foreign Language. Then, I got a master degree in French as a foreign language didactic at the University Denis Diderot Paris 7.
I don't use a book. I generally create my own material. I use authentic document: video and audio files (movies, radio, interview of native speakers...), articles,... Then, my students learn real, natural and today's French.
My favorite methodology? Communicative and actional approach. French is not only grammar... You need to understand cultural context and get lexical and phonetic skills, and knowledge about the structure of the discourse.
During my master studies I started my career as volunteer in an association for migrants and as conversation assistant at the University of Chicago Center in Paris. When I got my master degree, I went to Chicago for teaching at the University of Chicago for one year. When I came back, I gave private lessons at the ESCP Europe in Paris during one year. Then, I gave lessons to 3 Chinese teachers at the Confucius Institut in Paris. Now, I give private lessons to 3 Chineses engineers in Tours.
My students had beginners to advanced levels. They had specific and different purposes depending their studies, job and life.
My husband and I had Alice as a teacher during a two-week immersion course in France. We were extremely pleased with her adaptability to fit our needs. She was able to change lesson plans on the go as questions came up about the language and French culture. She uses lots of devices to encourage speaking, and does a great job of allowing the students to talk without constant interruption as I’ve found with other teachers. This helps build fluency, motivation, and confidence.
Alice is well versed in the language and has excellent teaching skills, using a variety of tools to create an interesting and fun learning environment.
Alice is a delightful person, great fun to be with and a wonderful teacher who inspires her students.
As a language teacher myself, I was extremely pleased by Alice’s professionalism, dedication, and attention. I recommend her without reservation.
Alice est très gentile et un très bon professeur. Elle a fait le cours amusement avec les leçons qui j'ai trouvé intéressant. Et je ne m'ai pas sensé presser. J'ai bien aimé le temps avec Alice. Je recommande beaucoup.
Alice est le meilleur professeur langue française pour les étrangers que j'ai rencontré.
