My daughter is a writer. She lives at street level, in a basement, from which she can see the feet of passers by. One day she was sitting at her desk, writing about the travails of teenage romance – Lola and Mathieu were alone in a boat on a choppy sea – when she heard a ghastly shrieking...
I have been working with children and people of all ages as a teacher, volunteer and artistic collaborator in schools and camps and through specific outreach organizations during the past five years in addition to studying and working in Manchester, UK. As music is my primary area of work...
Language is a mode of communication that we find in every culture around the world. In fact, it is a social activity. We do it by necessity and by pleasure.
We know that children learn languages by socially interacting with others (parents, carers, nannies, friends, brothers and sisters). They...

Ken Robinson TED talks : Education
Blood run from their face
Why do we need to learn a language? Why indeed? I mean it’s not as if the government thinks it’s particularly important, well certainly not in terms of them making a GCSE in languages obligatory up to 16 years of age. But conversely they view getting young children interested at primary...
One of the most memorable events in my life was when at the age of five I was walking around Monmartre, the portrait painting epicentre of Paris, with my Dad and a French man asked if he would like him "to paint ze liddle boy". My Dad said "non" but the painter persisted by upping his offer to...

I believe that one-to-one tuition is a very effective way to learn a new language, as the student has the teacher's full attention.
