What are my professional qualifications? – DAEFLE (2021) – DALF C2 (2019) – B.E. (hons) in Electronics & Telecommunication
What is my teaching experience? I have been teaching French since 2006. I have taught students from various countries : India, United States and online from children as young as 5 to pensioners.
What is my teaching approach ? As you know, having recently finished my teacher’s training course DAEFLE, I would put into practice the pedagogical skills I have learned. I believe in using an active, learner-centered approach. Using inductive reasoning, they will be encouraged to observe and identify the language usage and rules at their own pace, all the while using French as the means of communication, an immersion pedagogy that contrasts with the traditional approach using translation into the learners’ mother tongue. Explanations are provided in English at the basic level. Moreover, I believe in planning my lessons well in advance to optimize course time – an approach known as “flipped classroom”. Lastly, as a non native teacher with a near native proficiency in French, I can intuitively understand various challenges language learners face and thus provide them a unique learning experience.
Who are these lessons for? Anyone who wants to study French (elementary to intermediate levels : A1, A2, B1, B2). All you need is Skype/Zoom, a decent Internet connection and some motivation.
