Who am I?
As a teacher of French as a foreign language (FLE) for about twenty years now, I first worked in China, where I participated in the creation of a French department within the framework of a partnership between the University of Burgundy and the University of Henan Province.
I then worked in two language institutes in France, in Montpellier (ILA then LSF) with an adult public.
I gave French courses for all levels, from A1 (absolute beginner) to C2 (experienced user). The courses were general French, French for specific purposes (e.g. business French, French for international relations, etc.) or exam preparation (DELF/DALF/TEF/TCF).
Following these different experiences and driven by the desire to practice my profession in a more autonomous way, I decided to offer my own training, in immersion, here in Mialet.
Immersion allows us to adapt the courses to your specific needs and desires. It also allows us to set up an active pedagogy, since we will try to link the courses to the activities that we will do together.
The French courses will be adapted to your profile and your project, whether you are learning French for professional reasons, for your studies, to travel in a French-speaking country or just for fun.
