C'est bien que Jennifer me propose cette bonne leçon sur les adverbes et les adjectifs. Cela me fera du bien. Cette année, je me suis dit, "C'est bon, ça suffit! Je vais bien améliorer mon français. Ce serait une bonne idée! Suivre un bon cours bien pensé sera mieux pour moi que de chercher des exercices en ligne. Travailler seul(e), c'est bien.... mais bien travailler avec un bon professeur, c'est encore mieux. Je peux commencer ce cours aujourd'hui et continuer quand je veux. Il ne fait pas bon dehors. Il fait bien meilleur dans mon salon. J'ai regardé la vidéo, et ça va déjà mieux. Je me sens mieux parce que je commence à comprendre les règles. Les leçons que j'ai lues dans mon cahier d'exercices étaient bien, mais celle-ci me semble mieux."

English translation of the text you see above:

It's great that Jennifer is offering me this good lesson on adverbs and adjectives. This will do me good. This year I told myself, "Right, that's enough! I'm going to improve my French. That would be a good idea! Taking a good, well-planned course will be better for me than looking for exercises online. Studying alone is fine... but really working with a good teacher is even better. I can begin this course today and continue when I want to. It's kind of cold outside. It's nicer in my living room. I've already watched the video, and I'm already feeling better. I feel better because I'm beginning to understand the rules. The lessons that I read in my workbook were good, but this one seems better."

I'm Jennifer, and I'm a French teacher. I didn't grow up speaking French. I started learning French as an adult, so I know exactly how frustrating it can be when just trying to listen and respond seems impossible. I was fortunate enough to have CARING teachers who helped me and never seemed to be frustrated with me. When I started teaching French 20+ years ago, I was again fortunate to have mentors who showed me that CARING about my students and understanding their difficulties is the only way to help. I've been exactly where you are, and I know how to help you.

I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and French, then taught French for a year and moved to France for a year before pursuing and earning a Master of Arts degree in French. I taught French at Saint Louis University High School, a Jesuit college preparatory school for young men, for 14 years. A while before relocating to the South of France, I began teaching French online via Skype. I am now teaching French online full time and I also give immersion classes and guided city visits in both languages in Béziers, France.

It’s my job to guide you and help you along on your journey to learn French. Learning should be fun, and I will make sure that enjoy yourself as you improve your listening, writing, reading, and most importantly your speaking skills. Over the years I have developed many creative strategies to guarantee your progress. All students have different learning styles, different strengths and weaknesses, and different levels. One of my first jobs as your teacher is to provide you with an approach that will suit your learning style so that you will get the most out of your classes as possible.
