Heather

Heather

Beginners Year 2 & Intermediate

Heather taught French at Albury HS for 24 years before retiring in 2014. During that time she organised 10 study tours to France for my students. She has lived and worked in France 3 times, including a year on teacher exchange in 1996. She believes that learning a language broadens our view of the world and loves seeing the joy that my students experience when they finally realise that they can express themselves in French, and that others understand what they are trying to say!

Nelly

Nelly

Beginners & Conversation

Nelly has both French with both Italian and French roots. She studied History at Paris IV La Sorbonne for 2 years then did a Masters degree in Sociology in Metz and Nancy. She also studied and worked in France in the Early Childhood Education and Care services and is continuing this in Albury. She lived in several French cities and in Brussels before arriving in Australia in 2011. Since then she has lived in many towns around the country. She loves the Australian wildlife and nature. She belives speaking French fluently can be encouraged by an easygoing and positive environment where everyone has something to share and is valued and supported by everybody else. Talking freely and being yourself are very important in French culture.
