Bonjour! I am Xavier, born and bred in France, I am a native french speaker and qualified as a language teacher. I used to teach mandarin in an international school and I am looking now to share my native language with you.
I am a language specialist who graduated in chinese language, litterature and civilization before teaching mandarin as a second language for more than 6 years.
Tailored to your needs, after an assessment and reviewing your goals together, we will work together through a personalized curriculum to ensure that you will reach your goals.
I believe that your time in class is to practice the language as much as possible and that content has to be engaging. This is why I will put an emphasis on a flipped classroom teaching style. It means that I will guide you to study the theory on your own while we will do as many exercises as possible together. We will work on your listening, reading, writing and speaking skills, often crossing each others in an interesting way.
I will assess your level of french language and understand your motivation to learn it and I will taylor a curriculum according to your needs.
My aim is to make you grow as a language learner and to improve your level as quickly as possible.
