Discover French language through stories with a guy who lived in French speaking countries 18 years
Learn to speak French through stories and easily understood Q&A. No memorizing lists of words that one never uses in real life. Using the TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) framework the teacher will introduce the student to the language in a comprehensive input with the goal of being able to speak French. TPRS has been shown to aid students in language speaking acquisition more rapidly and more easily than traditional lecture and list memorization methods. The use of easily understood stories gives the student the comprehensive input necessary to understand the language and respond with phrases from the story. Stories are fun. Very quickly students possess adequate language acquisition to create stories of their own.
About Richard H.

I have taught in Africa, Europe and North America. I have taught classes as small as five students and as large as 150 students. The most fun thing in the world for me is watching people learn. When someone connects the dots and the light comes on in their eyes is the best thing ever. I like to know how a decision that was made in 1490 could continue to direct the course one of the world's most important countries until a ping pong coach missed his bus in 1971. I want to know how 300 men can beat an army of 30,000. I want to know why the king of a country would whip the ocean because it was too rough. I want to know the kinds of choices and decisions that move us forward into success and the kinds of choices and decisions that lead us to places that we want to avoid. Few of history's important people began their lives as important people. Speaking French opens up the world of French history and culture. How did a bunch of quarreling small kingdoms manage to come together, beat the English and reclaim Normandy to become the most important country and language in world history only to lose both positions? Speaking French opens doors to meet and know French citizens in France. It makes a vacation or a study trip in France a time to build relationships that may last a lifetime. Life can be an adventure. The more tools we have to use, the more we can get out of it. Let's develop some tools together.
