I am a multi-lingual language enthisiast, publisher and author. I have taught French to primary school children in the past. I have also taught EFL extensively in the Far East for the better part of the last 10 yerrs, which has allowed me to develop my own style and method of delivering language effectively to primary school children. I know what works and what doesn't. I am currently writing my own guide expressly for non-specialists with limited knowledge and time, that will allow them to deliver highly effective language classes at primary school, in any language from Afrikanaas to Zulu. The method is the same.
In addition to teaching, which is one of my passions, I am involved in publishing informational resources, on a wide range of topics, copywriting and graphic design.
Hi Chris - just checking in with you to see how it's going? Is it me or is this term with all the strange Easter dates very ....bitty? Am finding it hard to keep up with anything let alone everything!
Thanks for the warm welcome, Jo (we met on ptuk by the way, just in case you are trying to place me - I was ranting at some length about the obsession with French at primary), and sure, I'll keep you up to date Lisa. In fact, I've had an idea for something just over the last day or two...
Sorry I haven't been around very much since I joined. I've been snowed under with teaching, and all the other stuff I keep finding to do. I'll make more of an effort to be an active participant in the future.
Hi Chris - welcome to the network. I'm fascinated by what you write about in your 'about me' introduction and hope you will share your thoughts with us when you get time. Meanwhile I hope you find this a useful and friendly site.
Happy New Year - Jo
