I've taught French & German for over 20 years as well as using my language skills in the business world. I work with native-speaking Spanish & Italian teachers for products in those languages.
I like hands-on activities and keeping students engaged through oral practice by circulating and speaking to a variety of partners while filling in a chart with their replies, vocab & grammar games at the board or with a partner at desks, and doing in-class projects that allow learners of all types to shine. Whenever a competition is involved, I find that student interest skyrockets !

I worked in France & Germany for ten years to perfect my language skills. Most of my products have been proofread by native speakers of the language. I work with native-speaking Italian & Spanish teachers for those products.
