Bonjour! My name is Courtney, and I am a French teacher at Leicester High School. I am looking for a bit of extra work, and love to share my knowledge of the French language. I majored in French at Providence College, and have lived in France for extended periods of time. My first living experience in France was through studying abroad at the Sorbonne, Paris. The second was in 2010-2011, when I worked as an English teacher for middle school students just outside of Paris. With my students, I strive for not only mastery of the French language, but also an understanding of French and European culture on the whole. I stress the importance of correct pronunciation and practice speaking and listening extensively. Though we do many written exercises, I find that language acquisition through conversation is key. I am very passionate about my subject matter and can't wait to take on a new student, with whom I can have the opportunity to work one on one.
