I know how tough it can be to move to a new country because I've been there myself. After graduating from university, I moved to France to teach English, and even though I had studied French for years, I struggled with everyday tasks like making phone calls, giving personal information, and making a doctor's appointment. It was frustrating and discouraging to feel like I had wasted all that time studying only to be unable to function in French.
But I didn't give up. I kept working at it, and eventually, I realized that the problem wasn't me, but the way French was taught. That realization changed everything for me.
Now, as an CELTA-certified English teacher, I've developed an approach that's helped 100s of students like you overcome the same challenges I faced when I was learning French. Whether you're struggling to communicate with native speakers or handle daily tasks in English, my goal is to help you become more confident and independent in your language skills.
