I believe that learning a language at a young age is key, not only for a pupils's foreign language skills but also to enhance their general level of linguistic communication and expression. I help pupils understand the roots of our words, whether French or English, as this will boost all future learning universally. I aim to help primary school children feel confident to write structured sentences with essential French verb tenses, and teach them to understand the system by which French functions. I hope to expand on my pupil's vocabulary and begin to introduce them to French culture with stories containing simple language. I believe that confidence is crucial with any language, and I aim to introduce basic conversation that will progressively enable every pupil to speak with conviction.
I am a student, who spent a wonderful childhood growing up in France. This led me to continue studying the language to A level. I held multiple roles of responsibility in my school years, which I was committed to and thoroughly enjoyed. I am hoping to study an English degree at the University of Southampton beginning this autumn, with a minor in French. I have volunteered with primary school children and also produced my school's annual musicals, which allowed me to lead group rehearsals and work with pupils of all ages.
I am happy to give sibling discounts
