I learned my French in American schools, but had the wonderful opportunity to live in France for 11
years. I lived in Paris, in the suburbs of Paris, Avignon, Marseille, Bordeaux and in a lovely little
hamlet on the Côte d'Azur.
I incorporate my everyday learning experiences in those cities into the
classes. I studied French at the Sorbonne University, which helped to refine my conversational French.
Having learned French and knowing the difficulties in mastering it, I have the background and
knowledge needed to teach others the intricacies of the language. French is such a beautiful language
and so much of it has filtered into English without people even realizing it, that learning it can be
such fun. That is what the emphasis on my classes is - to have fun while learning! No one likes the
drudgery of learning by heart all those verb tenses and vocabulary, but put into fun conversational
sessions it can actually be enjoyable.
