My name is Aglae, I am French and I have been living in the UK for 7 years. I studied Film Studies and Theatre at Bangor University for 4 years.
I now work for astralship.org refurbishing a chapel in North Wales, transforming it into an innovation centre where creativity and new technologies meet up. Our main aim is to find some innovative break-throughs to implement a new way of living that is more sustainable and giving an alternative way to work than what is offered by the current corporations system. We are also interested in new educational techniques.
I am looking forwards to meet new people and share some knowledge.
I have been learning and teaching languages for a long time and am passionate about it.
I was a French tutor in Bangor University for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced levels for 2 years with students aged 18 to 47.
I have also been a personal English tutor to French kids and teenagers when I was living in France and as a summer job while I was going home during my university years.
With the project astralship.org, In have developed an immersive VR game to teach the Welsh language to kids.
I believe learning a language is always easier through immersion and am aware that online tutoring has its limits. However, I know techniques to keep the lessons educational and playful at the same time.
I give a theme of study for each lesson which comes with its vocabulary and gramatical rules and a lot of discussion to encourage the students to talk. I also invite them to proposetheir own themes that they are most interested in. To keep up the practice in between lessons I will ask students to research for the next lesson (trying to keep the personal involvment to a reasonable level according to availability) and propose different films, books and other medias as supportive tools.
