Thanks for visiting the website!
I'm Chris, your language coach at OuiCommunicate.
I launched this platform in November 2019 after 4 years of online teaching. My purpose is to help students acquire French by putting at your disposal the best of my know-how as a trained teacher.
Growing up in an expat context, I developped a native-like understanding of both French and English. We spoke English at home and French in everyday life.
It is this skill that I wish to put to the service of students learning French!
I was naturally drawn to languages and chose to study for a
Master's degree in Linguistics and Literature. I got to experience the challenge of learning a new language by taking on German for 5 years.
I then added a PGCE to my Masters, which is a further year at university that qualifies to teach in schools.
To perfect my understanding of English, I later completed several TEFL certificates.
When thinking up Ouicommunicate I knew I had something amazing in my hands: a way to make French lessons easier than ever-before.
There is a way in which we view languages, based on our first language. We assume certain things, we pronounce certain words in a certain way etc.
However, when your tutor knows exactly where you are coming from and can provide links and shortcuts for your learning , things get easy quickly !
Today, with Oui Communicate I teach learners from all around the world. Some enjoy French as a hobbie, others need it to adapt to a new country.
Whatever the reason, the ride has been great and continues to be everyday !
