31 people in Montreal have registered for classes with this teacher.

Course description:

The class is divided into half - conversation, half - grammatical exercises, depending on the requirements of the student. Homework (optional but encouraged !) is also provided.

Teaching approach:

I use a range of techniques drawn from a variety of methods/approaches in what has been labelled an ‘eclectic approach'. My aim is foremost to give the student confidence along with the proficiency to speak the language with ease. I also focus on expanding the vocabulary, improving enunciation and pronunciation and at the same time making the class fun and enjoyable !
