I am a French native and have lived in Ireland for 14 years … I have been living in a very rural part of County Limerick. I have also lived in the UK for many years and have travelled quite a lot. I have a passion for music, rugby and … Teaching !
I always wanted to use my language skills and , having worked in different sectors eventually found out the most rewarding and enjoyable way to use my skills in everyday life was through teaching French. I have studied the Irish curriculum extensively and started to provide grinds 6 years ago. I have also realised that learning a language at a young age is the best time . Being bilingual like myself and my children is a great advantage in life.I have also worked in primary schools teaching French with great results and success.
Approach to Grinds:
I believe confidence is the key to learn a language. For that reason I try to adapt the lessons to the student's level and ability using material they enjoy studying . I also believe having a good and relaxed attitude during the lessons helps gaining the necessary trust from the students . I always make sure progress is achieved through regular tests and homework checks are done.

Besides the language Michael covered some cultural differences between Ireland and France and made other useful suggestions for our trip. Highly recommend.
(to build reasonable expectations: I had some idea about French pronunciation and spelling before, also had worked on a vocabulary a bit, so you obviously may need much more than several classes).
