About Cecile

I am originally from Paris, I moved to England at the age of 18 where I learned to be fluent in English. After a few years of integration into a new way of living and communicating I embarked on a journey I never thought I would have taken when I lived in France.

I decided that I wanted to teach French as a foreign language. I joined an agency in the south of England called Le Club Francais. Through this agency I was trained to prepare and teach French lessons. I went to weekend seminars for teaching training, and I was also sent into different schools where I would teach children form the age of 6 to 11 years old. I have a natural and a positive contact with children and with the structure of teaching methods I was able to keep my students interested and motivated to learn.
My desire to expend directed me to go to University in London where I completed a four year degree in French in 2002. I really enjoyed exploring and learning French phonetics and the way the language evolves through out time and this explains why I now focus on sounds and (what I call vocal gymnastic) when I teach French. I like using songs to learn difficult sounds like (ou, ain, en.) I have put together a simple program to help not only learning the practical side of french but also to be able to articulate the sounds well. My program is called A,E,I,O,U en Fran├žais. My classes focus is learning and speaking practical words developing into sentences using flash cards, songs, conversations, writing, drawing and games. I am very patient I have a gentle approach which helps the student not to be afraid of making mistakes and to relax into learning a new language.

I teach beginners and intermediates. I now live in the United States and over the last 3 years I have been teaching private lessons at home to children as well as adults, and I love teaching French.
