I am a polyglot and I’ve always loved diving into cultures and languages!
I’ve started teaching French in schools in 2012 where I was completely independent in the matter of designing my class and that allowed me to experiment with different tools for blended learning: I wanted to create content that was fun to learn with!
I kept teaching Moliere's mother tongue opting for private lessons at home and I sticked in the sector of education becoming a Youth Worker involved in European projects for youth.
As a European projects coordinator I had to create different thematic trainings: workshops, webinars, and seminars. And that experience brought me new teaching skills! Non-formal education methods, a more holistic approach as well as technological allies to vary my classes (Moodle, Videoscribe, Kahoot, Prezi, Crowdsignal, Slido). I see teaching as mutual process that enriches us and during 1 year I implemented and coordinated a program of linguistic tandems.
I design my lesson having in mind a specific learning target.
How is this learning target defined? It is greatly linked with the goals of the learner and it is reached by taking the cognitive style of the student into account.
Do you need an overview to learn a new subject? Or you prefer to be able to focus on the individual parts of a theme to assimilate it effectively? Do you use single words or associations of words to remember or do you employ images to stimulate your memory?
We are aware that our memory works with the right space repetition and in hand in hand with emotions.
Let's find together effective, enjoyable methods! Let's start your learning journey!
