Grammaire Progressive du français - Niveau Débutant by Maia Grégoire - Cle International
I am a native French speaker and have been living in Australia for the last 20 years. Prior to that, I lived in France, West Africa and Tahiti. I obtained the LOTE Diploma - Teaching French as a Foreign Language - at UNSW as well as other degrees in different fields in Paris and Great Britain. I have been teaching French in Sydney since 2003 and to students of all levels at Mosman Community College for 9 years as well as to HSC students. I have been teaching at the NSCC since 2016 and it has been a wonderful experience. Beside teaching, I did some translations for Oxfam for a few years (monthly newsletters) and for International Aid projects in DRC (Congo) up to now. I use a communicative and interactive learning method in a relaxed ‘ambiance’ to enhance the students’ communication skills and build up their confidence to speak French with ease in everyday situation.
