Unshoulder the burden of teaching French at home

Speaking a foreign language is a key to unlocking untold opportunities for your child. This we know.

But in a pandemic at home or when you homeschool on the regular?

Honestly, family life takes up most of our time: parenting, connecting, homeschooling, chauffeuring.

Even knowing how important it is for college and beyond, making another language part of our day can be hard.

And we hate to see our kids mumbling to a screen, alone in a corner, there is enough of that going on today.

I have been there: trying to teach a language via textbooks with no context was about as unmotivating as it gets. But I am mom to five bilingual homeschooled children.

So how did I make it work?

Voilà: I used the resources I offer here; immersion in person: phrases that follow our at-home daily rhythm.

Votre maîtresse...

Bonjour, je suis Angela.

I would love to share my favorite second language with you and with your family.

I am CONVINCED you will love reigniting your French with us. (I occasionally share the mic or the camera with my family.)

I am a Midwestern, almost-former Waldorf homeschooler. I lived in France for half of my adult life, pursuing wave-watching and child-chasing on the Atlantic shore, and greatly enjoying life the French way.

I am also a judiciary French interpreter and I hold a master's degree in French/English translation, but that is not what makes me a good teacher of languages.

That comes from the heart, from an inner fire to open up our ears to the beautiful languages of the planet.

This is a daily practice for me; life in two languages, alongside my husband, Thierry, and our five fantastic children.
