Bonjour ! My name is Vincent. Let me introduce myself a bit so that you will know about me, then decide if you are interested in meeting on Skype for french lessons. First of all, you have to know that I am a french native. I was born in the North of France, grew up in the South -in Provence- then spent time in Paris before studying at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques (Political Sciences) in Toulouse (South West) and finally came back to Paris where I lived for years and worked in the photo industry, mostly as art director. In between I had travelled in Brazil where I took photos. It actually is a long story that I may tell you one day if you are interested to know more… Then I had a professional opportunity to move to Ireland. I seized it and have been living in county Kerry since then. It has been thirteen years ! Now, what drove me to teach french ? Well, it is very simple : one day I woke up and asked myself «What would you be able to do in order to pass on part of your knowledge to people ? ». As I have travelled extensively in my life (North and South America, Africa, Europe, and also lost remote places on the globe…) it turned obvious to me that language would be the tracks to follow. Therefore I did what I had to do : I trained with the Alliance Française (Paris – Dublin – Limerick) to become a qualified french native teacher. Over the last couple of years, I have taught french as a foreign language to groups of adults from various backgrounds and levels. I have also taught french to students. I must say that it has been a real pleasure so far. Teaching is about meeting people and sharing. I am not expecting more than that. Time to end this presentation has come. I just wish to talk to you soon ! Thank you for your attention.
I’m constantly trying to improve my teaching skills in order to satisfy the needs of my students. Internet is a very useful tool to experience new methods. I hope you enjoy learning as much as I enjoy teaching !
