French for children and for adults with professional and experienced native lady.

Methodology

At first I have to find out what is the goal of the person who wants to learn French and to be able to respond to her needs as much as possible. I try to find texts to work on matching the interest, activities or profession of the person. I choose text introducing grammar topics, so when the vocabulary is understood we can start training on this grammatical topics with exercises. I like to vary my lessons and activities often, to avoid boredom, so I might introduce small videos and podcasts to watch online from educational website (TV5 and CAVILLAM from French Alliance, Babel and BBC Language for children)
To be able to understand some difficult points of the French grammar and to help learning some topics I use a lot of worksheets taken either from the internet or from books.
According to the level of my client, I might do a dictation or have a conversation about her daily activities
or future plans.

Background

I come from France and I have been teaching 12 years my native language in Germany, and 6 years in Melbourne. I work for several agencies such as the French Alliance of Melbourne, the French Workshop, and LCF Fun Language.

All through these years, I acquired a great experience in teaching, and I am able to recognize the need of my students pretty quickly. In Germany, I joined many workshops to improve my teaching capacities and acquire new ideas about the process of teaching and using the new tools of communication.

Therefore I have gained a lot of confidence and professionalism, and I supposed that I reflect a good feeling on my students as I have in my own private students some children (now aged 12 years old) who have been learning French online with me since 5 years just for the fun of it; I am able to give references.

The fact that I had to learn a foreign language when I moved to Germany and later on teach French as a second language to my own children, has helped me a lot to understand the process of learning of a new language and how to remember vocabulary.
