TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Thirty-five years experience in teaching second languages. Eleven years teaching ESL to French speakers in elementary school. Twenty-four years teaching English for specific purposes to young adults. Eleven summer sessions teaching French as a second language to young English-speaking adults.Two summer sessions teaching second-language didactics to non-native French teachers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have always used the direct method (teach the new language without using the students' native language). Student participation is my main focus (whether teaching children or adults). Using games and songs helps motivate students to learn another language. I use work-related simulations for final summative evaluations when teaching English for specific purposes.
