Information About Jeanne - Wincanton teacher - (7 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Jeanne:
I'm a 39 years old French native, married with an Italian. After living in Italy for a few years in my early twenties, we moved to England almost 15 years ago, first living in London and now in Somerset. I'm a mother of 4 children, and as a family we daily speak the 3 languages at home. Languages are an important part of my life, and I feel strongly about sharing my interest for them with others!
First of all, I teach my children French. They attend an English school and I find it very important for them to learn their mother tongue. I run a French after-school Club at our local school, going on for the third year now. I teach privately French and Italian to students of all ages and all levels. This year, I am doing a teacher training course working 2 days a week in a Primary School, hoping to become a school teacher in the future.
The most important thing is to understand your needs and the first question is: do you want to learn the language because you have to or because you want to? Then, the point is to make it as fluid as possible: French and Italian are difficult languages, and you just want to see yourself making progress and having fun. To reach this target, I try to diversify my courses and integrate some cultural and social facts into the teaching so you learn the language as well as the habits of the chosen country. Grammar is unfortunately compulsory to gain a full knowledge in French or Italian but grammatical elements are integrated to the course slowly so you don't get overwhelmed by them. I also dispense some tecnical sheets outside of lessons so you can perfect your learning at your own pace if you have time to.

She immediately related extremely positively to our daughter, and has already guided her in a way that will be helpful -not only for her forthcoming exam -but for life!
