Who is French with Véro ?
French as a foreign language teacher
Hello, my name is Véronique Baudens, but you can call me Véro.
I am French, have been a French (as a Foreign Language) teacher for a little over 10 years, and have given French lessons on Skype for the past 7 years.
I am 47 years old, and after having lived abroad for 10 years, I moved back home to France with my family.
What is your educational background?
I have a training in French as a Foreign Language, and a Master’s Degree in Foreign Languages and Civilizations, with a specialization in Spanish.
Why did you choose to pursue this field?
Ever since I was a kid, I have always loved travels, cultures, and foreign languages. I then realized I also love my mother tongue, French, and wish to pass on the essential rules of conversation with French people, which do not simply entail vocabulary but also knowledge and respect of the French culture.
What was your life like overseas?
These last few years, I have worked as a French teacher and tutor in Mexicali, Mexico, between 2007 and 2010, then in San Francisco, United States, between 2011 and 2018, with students of all nationalities, ages and skill levels.
Throughout my expatriation, I met a lot of people of different backgrounds, I taught French classes, I developed and managed workshops, and I organized francophone cultural events.
What educational method do you use?
Following my experience in Mexico and the United States, I came back to France and started an easy and fast method to learn French, accessible to anyone from home, the office or anywhere else. I offer French private or group classes online, more specifically on Skype.
I established a program of French pronunciation, orthography, grammar, literature, general culture and news, which people all over the world can benefit from to review for exams or interviews, to plan an expatriation, to travel or simply to discover a new culture and practice our beautiful French language.
What makes you an exceptional teacher?
Skilled teacher, I adapt to students of all French levels, from the learning process to further improvement, and from beginner to advanced level.
What is your secret?
My motto: provide a relaxed atmosphere and get students to learn and progress in French while having fun, to develop self-confidence and to make considerable progress, without too much effort.
Now that you know me, don’t hesitate to contact me!
